From the tranquil waterways of the Norfolk Broads to the historic buildings in the city of Norwich, and from the beautiful beaches at Hunstanton to the amusements, arcades and attractions of Great Yarmouth, there’s so much to love about Norfolk. There are spectacular stately homes, steam railways and miles of canals all waiting to be explored, along with churches and the magnificent Norwich Cathedral.
Overall, Norfolk is a relatively flat and low-lying county. Yet, it’s a haven for wildlife and an impressive place from which to view majestic summer sunrises. An array of wetland birds can be found at the Wash, and there are lovely little market towns where you can join hundreds of people as you shop for souvenirs, bargains and collectables.
Hotels like Hunstanton’s Golden Lion make an ideal base from which to explore Blue Flag beaches lined with brightly-coloured beach huts, and an abundance of walking trails. You’ll find that the county’s walking paths and trails take you past some of the best sights and attractions, with time to stop at welcoming traditional pubs and in friendly little villages.
The Queen’s country residence, Sandringham, is just one of many visitor attractions ideal if you’re looking for incredible gardens and the splendour of an opulent country house. Around the region you’ll find beautiful landscaped grounds with lawns, lakes, ponds and glades to enjoy.
An incredible history going back thousands of years has led to Norfolk becoming one of the most interesting places to go for a short break or holiday. It’s favoured by human visitors as much as it’s enjoyed by the abundant local wildlife. Whether your idea of a perfect holiday includes historic houses and afternoon teas or theme parks, arcades and outdoor activity centres, you’ll find that Norfolk has all that you could want.
