Shoe Shopping

Ladies – you will love this!
One of our earlier trips some 18 years ago was Shoe Shopping in Norwich. It was hugely popular and on one trip the average purchases were 5 pairs of shoes and two handbags per person! We have decided to revive this trip, but this time we are including a factory tour of Van Dal, the last remaining shoe factory in the UK. The trip will also include shopping in their outlet shop with a 10% discount, a delicious lunch with wine at the superb Dunston Hall Hotel and further bargains can be bought on our final stop at East Anglia’s largest footwear outlet.
