North Norfolk is well known for its natural charm and beauty. The immaculate coastline has 45 miles of beautiful beaches and much of it is in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which means the coast has natural features of exceptional beauty.  

Along the coast are several award-winning and Blue Flag beaches, each offering something different. Head to Holkham and Wells to discover wildlife and come to Cromer for surfing and crabbing. Enjoy the huge expanses of sands at Brancaster and for traditional seaside charm, spend the day at Sheringham, Mundesley and Sea Palling. Delve into Deep History Coast at West Runton beach, where significant historical finds have been uncovered including a 600,000 year old mammoth skeleton. Great for rockpooling and beachcombing, you just might come across an ancient fossil!

Not only have north Norfolk's beaches revealed historical finds, but the whole area is steeped in history and heritage. Explore the many fine buildings, stately homes and churches and find out about the area's past. North Norfolk is also home to one of the largest artistic communities in the UK. Visit open galleries, as well as live outdoor concerts and shows at theatres, including the only 'end of pier' show of its kind in the world!

North Norfolk is also ideal if you're looking for adventure. Try kite-boarding, surfing, paddle boarding or horse-riding. Have a go at crabbing at Blakeney or Wells Harbour and if golf's your game, Cromer and Brancaster have royal golf courses and you will find equally attractive courses at Fakenham, Hunstanton, Sheringham and Mundesley.

Visit any time of the year and discover wildlife unique to north Norfolk. Visit the largest seal colony in England at Blakeney Point and head to the nature reserves to enjoy some of the best birdwatching in the UK. Take a deer safari at Holkham and get up close the large herd of roaming Fallow Deer.

Both the coast and countryside is great for walking and cycling. Whether you want to wander along rural trails, cycle through the Broads National Park or hike along the 84 mile long Norfolk Coast Path, Norfolk's trails take in some of England's most exhilarating scenery. Or simply meander through the charming market towns and villages.
