Adult escapes - with chocs and bubbles!

September it's an ideal time to visit Norwich with a spontaneous adult escape, as the attractions are quieter and prices can be cheaper as peak-season ends.When it comes to rest and relaxation, we have an indulgent range of hotels with some fantastic late summer deals available.  

If running a bubble bath is as laborious as you want things to get, how about booking a romantic getaway where the agenda goes something like... 

11am: Relaxing back massage
2pm: Champagne afternoon tea
5pm: Open bottle of chilled Prosecco
7pm Dress for romantic dinner

Look no further, we've pulled together some of the most tempting deals for September and October.
