Norfolk, on the east coast of England has unspoilt beaches along its 100 miles of coastline. Along with exciting seaside resorts and beautiful countryside, there is so much to see and do that once you’ve visited once, you’ll want to return again and again!
Places to visit
Norfolk is well known for the man-made Broads. There is over 125 miles of lock-free waterways set in beautiful countryside with many picturesque towns and villages. You can hire a boat, walk or cycle along it and don’t forget your binoculars – there’s some great wildlife to spot.
Gorleston Beach is the perfect place to relax with 3km of soft sand and a stunning bay. Although tranquil, there are plenty of activities for the children to enjoy and the area has a really traditional feel to it. With its rolling waves, it’s also a great location for surfers and body boarders.
If you’re looking for plenty of fun and excitement for the family then head to the top of Great Yarmouth’s golden mile for the Pleasure Beach. Spread over nine acres, there are plenty of rides – whether you’re a fan of the big ones or just the caterpillar…!
Slow things down a bit with a relaxing, woodland walk at Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden. It’s a unique garden, with loads of wildlife, set within the heart of the Norfolk Broads.
Well, that is just the tip of the iceberg to some of the gems that Norfolk has to offer. For ideas on places to stay, why not visit the Haven website by clicking here.
