Welcome to the 2023 International Healey Meeting

Norfolk and East Anglia

This year Eastern Centre welcomes you to Norfolk, the county with no motorways, big skies and very few serious hills. As a change to past IHWs, the 2023 event is taking place mid-week (Tuesday to Thursday) and earlier in the year.

We will be based on the outskirts of the Hanseatic town of Kings Lynn at the four-star Knights Hill Hotel, conveniently situated on the A149, for exploring this quiet part of East Anglia.

On arrival for a check-in time of 3:00pm onwards on Tuesday afternoon, you can collect your welcome packs. We will gather in the evening for pre-dinner drinks followed by a hot buffet – and a chance to meet old friends and make new acquaintances! Dress for evenings in the hotel will be smart casual, with Dinner Jacket or Lounge Suit for the Gala Dinner on Wednesday evening.

On Wednesday there will be a planned drive to the lovely Georgian town of Holt to catch a steam train on the North Norfolk Railway to the picturesque seaside town of Sheringham. Lunch is not provided but there are plenty of cafes and pubs available. Spend some time strolling along the promenade or perhaps do some sunbathing and sea swimming. Catch a train back to Holt and return to the hotel at your leisure, in time for the evening Gala Dinner.

Thursday morning, we will head to the iconic privately-owned stately home of Holkham Hall for a drive through the extensive private estate and deer park. There will be a unique opportunity to park in front of the magnificent House. There will be a chance to explore the beautifully restored Vinery and delightful walled gardens. Lunch is not provided, but you will have a voucher for a hot drink. Don’t forget to leave space for the afternoon tea at Knights Hill Hotel before we make our farewells and depart.
