Make your own way to Watford Station (around 25 minutes from central London by tube), where your guide and private vehicle will be waiting for you. Then, set out on the 2.5-hour drive to Walsingham, passing through the scenic Thetford Forest, and along the country lanes of Norfolk.
Along the way, learn about Walsingham’s fascinating religious heritage, which dates back to the time – around 1,000 years ago – when the Virgin Mary reportedly appeared and instructed that a replica of the house of Jesus in the Holy Land be reconstructed here. On arrival, make a beeline for the town’s holiest site – the Roman Catholic shrine and adjoining Slipper Chapel, which dates back to 1325.
Then, head into the holy village, where points of interest include the ruined abbey, the Orthodox Church, and the Anglican Church and shrine. Finally, enjoy some free time to stroll around the medieval village independently and browse the souvenir shops, before setting out on the journey back to London.
