You can fly from Edinburgh to Norwich on Flybe. No flights from Glasgow at the moment.

Try nationalrail.co.uk for routes, prices and so forth.

I would guess Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh Waverley, Edinburgh to Peterborough, Peterborough to Norwich.

Also check about suitable Railcards to reduce the (substantial) cost.

In that case you want the train to Great Yarmouth. www.nationalrail.co.uk for journey planning. it looks like you can do it with only 2 changes from Glasgow Central going via Manchester Oxford Road and then Norwich to Great Yarmouth. Or it's the east coast route via Edinburgh, Peterborough and Norwich. Either route is a long train journey! It's about 2 miles to the holiday resort so I guess a taxi would be the easiest option from the station.

I can't help thinking there must be caravan sites that would be a lot quicker and easier to go to!
