Blakeney, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is an ideal base to explore the north Norfolk Coast. At the heart is Blakeney National Nature Reserve with wide open spaces and uninterrupted views of the coastline, ideal for walking and spotting local wildlife including seals and migratory birds.Blakeney Point is home to the largest seal colony in England and there boat trips to view the seals on Blakeney Point, a 3½ mile (6 kilometre) long sand and shingle spit.

The village has pretty flint cottages, once home to local fisherman, and there are plenty of places to eat and stay as well as pubs, gift shops and art galleries to visit. The small port at the mouth of the River Glaven makes Blakeney a popular summer spot for yachts and pleasure craft. Wander aroud narrow lanes of flint cottages, explore the fine church and the medieval Guildhall, tucked away in an alley just off the quay. Here you will find the remains of the house of a prosperous Blakeney merchant, which has a fine 15th century brick-vaulted undercroft.

On the village outskirts, lies St Nicholas church, built between the 13th and 15th century, which unusually, has two towers. A couple of miles walk away is Cley-next-the-Sea offering great views across the marshes and it was this marshland that was used for horse races up to the early 19th century as well as being a regular haunt for smugglers!
