Excursions and tours

The Society organises a number of Summer Excursions to sites of interest within the region. In most years we also run a four-day residential excursion. In recent years we have visited sites in Lincolnshire and Wales.

Four-day Excursion 2019

This year's four-day excursion will be from 4th to 7th October to Sussex, staying in Lewes. The leader will be our President, Andy Hutcheson. The booking form is now available, please click on the menu to the right.

Summer 2019

Our 2019 summer excursion programme is now available. We have arranged a walk around Viking Norwich, a visit to the Viking exhibition, and a visit to the Broadland Project. Full details and booking forms are available as pdfs from the links to the right.
