About Norfolk Beaches

With a variety of scenery and range of activities, Norfolk promises a holiday experience few other places can match.

Cromer Norfolk

Visitors here can choose between a variety of activities including boating tours, birdwatching, hiking, or chilling out at some of Britain's best beaches. As one of the driest parts of the UK, this is a year-round destination, with lots on offer whatever month you visit.

Tourists have been coming to the resort town of Great Yarmouth for three centuries. With its 15 miles of beaches and attractions including a circus, museums, amusement park and aquarium, the town more than lives up to its heritage as an excellent holiday destination.

Great Yarmouth is also a good place to embark on a boating excursion on the Broads, the interconnected lakes and rivers covering over 100 square miles of inland Norfolk before they open out onto the North Sea.

Avid ramblers and gentle walkers alike will enjoy travelling along the Norfolk Coast Path, a 62 mile walking trail that takes in one of Norfolk's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Being too remote to immediately benefit from the Industrial Revolution, Norfolk's main city Norwich has retained much of its medieval architecture and cobbled road network. Norwich Castle, commissioned by William the Conqueror, is now a museum and art gallery.

Norfolk has an unusually high concentration of medieval churches, chief among them being Norwich cathedral, also a legacy of the Normans. Another building from the Middle Ages, the Church of Saint James the Less, is now home to the Norwich Puppet Theatre.

The county is home to a number of nature reserves that are open to visitors. Norfolk Wildlife Trust's Cley Marshes in the north of the county ranks high among the UK's top birdwatching spots.
