Have you discovered north Norfolk yet?
From the striped cliffs at Hunstanton, to West Runton on the fossil rich Deep History Coast, to Happisburgh, where the earliest signs of human habitation within Europe were discovered, the coast is varied & fascinating. With its vast expanses of sand dunes, pinewoods, pebble beaches and rock pools, north Norfolk beaches are hard to beat. Stop off along the coast in Sheringham & Cromer for its unique theatres.
Explore inland and you will find traditional market towns. Visit Fakenham with its famous racecourse and flea market and spend time in pretty Burnham Market, a shopper's paradise with its clothing boutiques, art galleries & tea shops. Head to Holt with its Georgian architecture, antique shops, galleries and cafes and take a trip to historical Aylsham on the River Bure for artisan food shops.
Surrounding the market towns is north Norfolk's breath taking countryside. Stunning all year round, it is perfect for horse riding, bird watching and home to unique wildlife & nature. Take a walk or bike trip on the quiet country roads, Peddars Way walking route and the Norfolk Coast Path. Dotted throughout the landscape, you’ll come across grand stately homes, waiting to be explored.
Weaving its way through the countryside is the man-made Broads National Park, which can be explored by foot, boat or bike. And take a journey back in time on the heritage railway lines and explore the historical churches, museums & buildings unique to north Norfolk.
