Spend some time in Norfolk and you’ll see why it’s become a favourite destination for short breaks and holidays. Awash with sandy beaches, historical buildings and miles of canals waiting to be explored, you’ll find churches and cathedrals standing mighty and stately homes brimming with grace and grandeur.
Norfolk’s low-lying landscapes make them the ideal place to take in majestic summer sunrises, wetland birds flying in silhouette against its rays. Your hotel, The Golden Lion, is an iconic part of Norfolk history; built in 1846, its surrounding views of the tranquil greenery, sandy beaches and beyond make it a sought-after place to stay. Offering views over the North Sea, you can catch glimpses of Lincolnshire further up the coast. This peaceful location provides the perfect setting from which to enjoy the best north Norfolk has to offer.
From here, lots of walking trails and Blue Flag beaches, lined with brightly-coloured beach huts, open themselves for discovery. With welcoming pubs and friendly villages along the way, a stroll here is never short on things to do and places to visit.
Sandringham, the Queen’s country residence, is under 10 miles from the Golden Lion, and presents sprawling gardens and an opulent country house, encircled with landscaped grounds and lawns, along with lakes, ponds and glades to enjoy. Elsewhere, Holkham Hall’s 18th-century splendour is home to a 3,000-acre deer park to ramble through at your leisure.
Bustling with theatres, theme parks, and zoos, Norfolk’s abundant attractions mean it’s superb for a short break. Fancy visiting this beautiful part of the country? Head over to our dedicated Golden Lion Hotel page, here, to see what rooms and offers are available to you today.
