North Norfolk Digital Guide
Outdoors in North Norfolk
Fall in love with our landscape - the fields, woods and wetlands that are so lush and vivid in summer, so primal and dramatic in winter, and ripe for discovery whatever time of year
Nationally recognised as the cleanest part of the UK (holding the overall Clean Britain Award), North Norfolk's countryside is a calm and convenient environment for outdoor pursuits.
Cycling, walking and horse-riding are popular ways to explore the gentle undulations of our paths and byways - all under our famously endless expanse of sky. Artists flock here for the raw beauty of natural North Norfolk and the charm of our distinctive brick-and-flint built heritage.
The waterways of the Broads can be enjoyed in many ways such as boating, sailing and fishing. Canoeing is a fun activity to get children get out on the water and making a splash.
Stately parks and gardens have been preened through generations of careful husbandry, while wider expanses of North Norfolk lure birdwatchers and nature-lovers. Inland and along our coast, estates, woodlands and nature reserves are lovingly tended, continuing a centuries-old tradition of respect for the land.
