Walsingham Abbey

Walsingham Abbey

Details

We return to this exciting venue as it was a firm favourite in 2015 and we are sure it will provide opportunities to enrich the existing template for the day.

The garden and grounds surrounding Walsingham Abbey are famous for the spectacular ruins of the mediaeval Priory and place of pilgrimage.

Waiting for you as you take on the eight-mile course, you will be greeted by the sight of some of the finest food and drink Norfolk has to offer.

Suppliers of local produce have created little food-stops - feasts for the eyes as well as the stomach - for you to enjoy, as we celebrate Norfolk at its finest.

A perfect day out for countryside and food lovers alike.
