September 22 - September 24
A Weekend in Sherlockian Norfolk
“as singular a countryside as any in England”
This year The Sherlock Holmes Society of London's annual outing will be to the historic County of Norfolk, home to Horatio, Lord Nelson, Boudicca and two of the most intriguing cases in the Sherlock Holmes canon – The Adventure of The Dancing Men and The Gloria Scott. We shall convene at our weekend base, the Best Western George Hotel, Newmarket Road, Norwich NR2 2DA for supper on Friday, 22nd September and disperse after lunch on Sunday, 24th September.
This is the Society’s first return to the county to consider these stories since 1984 and is an excellent opportunity to test our knowledge and understanding of these cases. Our investigations will be firmly set “in the country of the Broads,” visiting and viewing the sites of both stories. Lunch on Saturday will be taken at another significant canonical location, The Royal Cromer Golf Club, and afternoon tea at The Hill House Hotel in Happisburgh.
Some bedrooms are located upstairs. If you have a mobility problem please let us know. We have booked sufficient accommodation for 40 people and have en suite double, twin and single rooms. Early booking is advised. There is car parking for 35 cars at the Hotel. The Hotel is served by the main bus route and frequent buses run from the train station. The railway station is 1.2 miles away.
The cost for the weekend is £270 per person, which includes two nights’ bed and breakfast, supper on Friday, lunch on Saturday and Sunday and Dinner on Saturday evening. The cost of drinks with meals is not included and you will be responsible for your own travel arrangements when arriving at and departing from the Hotel.
Attendees can either pay in full on application or provide £100 deposit and pay the remainder by 30 June.
