Why Norfolk?

Berney Arms
Norfolk has so much to offer visitors. From the lovely beaches on the unspoilt coastline, with nature reserves and fantastic wildlife, to the Heritage City of Norwich, the historic market towns and picturesque villages. The Norfolk Broads cover 125 miles of navigable waterways made up of rivers and lakes, a great place to visit with plenty of walks and restaurants and pubs to enjoy. Boats can also be hired on the broads, and there are many cycle routes to enjoy.

On the attractive waterfront you will find the 18th C. Custom House. Just to the north of Kings Lynn is Sandringham House and Park, a great place to explore. Going north Hunstanton is a traditional seaside resort and is the only east coast resort which faces west. It offers arrange of attractions and a large sandy beach and colourful gardens. Heacham which is just south of Hunstanton is home to Norfolk Lavender, a national collection of lavenders and other herbs.

At Brancaster Staithe you can buy fresh fish. Burnham Market has a traditional village atmosphere with lovely shops and restaurants, and not far away is Burnham Overy Staithe which has fabulous coastal walks.

Wells-next-the-Sea is a popular small town and the picturesque arrow streets are lined with traditional flint buildings. There is a little railway that takes visitors from the port to the nearby sandy beach. Little Walsingham is the famous pilgrimage centre with extensive ruins of Augustinian abbey set in parkland. The picturesque village has timber framed buildings and Georgian facades lining the High Street and Market Place.

Holt is one of the most attractive small towns in Norfolk. The main street is lined with elegant Georgian buildings and the town is well known for Gresham's, a public school founded in 1555 by Sir John Gresham, a former Lord Mayor of London. Holt is ideal for antique and bric-a-brac collectors and has many lovely shops to browse around.

Sheringham is a traditional seaside town which grew up around its old fishing village, which still brings in fish today. There are lovely Edwardian and Victorian buildings. Sheringham is home to the North Norfolk Railway (The Poppy Line) which operates steam train rides to Holt.

Further round the coast Cromer is a sedate seaside town and stands on a cliff top, with wide sandy beaches running down to the sea. Cromer is famous for its crabs, caught by local fishing boats which still work from the beach. Great Yarmouth is one of Britain's most popular seaside resorts with wide sandy beaches, colourful gardens and traditional seaside attractions and entertainment. Yarmouth sits on a spit of sand between the sea and the River Yare, and the town's wealth comes from its port.

Cathedral
The Norfolk Broads are a series of rivers and broads (lakes), most of which are navigable and provide a great boating destination with waterside restaurants and pubs. This a great place to also cycle and walk alongside the river routes.

Norwich is East Anglia's capital, with over 1500 historic buildings within the old walls, and winding lanes and cobbled streets. The magnificent cathedral dominates Norwich with its 12th C castle keep. There are plenty of museums, galleries, theatres, restaurants and pubs to enjoy, and also some excellent shopping centres, a colourful open air market and the famous Coleman's Mustard Shop! Towards the west Fakenham on the River Wensum has a large market place surrounded by handsome 18/19th C. buildings, interesting courtyards and tiny lanes. Here you will also find Fakenham Racecourse.

Thetford Forest sunrise
Diss is a thriving market town set in the Waveney Valley, and borders a six acre mere which is home to a variety of wildfowl. Not far from here is Banham Zoo and also Bressingham Steam Museum - both great for a family day out!
