With a coastline officially recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and National Park status being awarded to the Norfolk Broads, there’s more than enough to keep the nature lovers among you busy in Norfolk. Enjoy the best of both worlds in Great Yarmouth, where a lengthy coastline offers days of dipping your feet in the sea and strolling along the promenade, ice-cream in hand. It's also the chosen set-off point for boat trips cruising into the wildlife-packed Broads. A bit further down the coast, you'll find a Victorian pier in Cromer, reminiscent of the holidays of yesteryear. Explore the site with a helping of fish and chips too, picked up from one of the shops by the beach. Browse Plum Guide's hand picked Lodges in Norfolk.
In an inlet, you'll find the quaint harbour town of Wells-Next-The-Sea, where joining the Norfolk Coastal Trail into the AONB is among the better plans. Inland, the famous city of Norwich reflects the county perfectly, with a cathedral, a medieval castle, and flowing streets filled with tea houses, delis, and even a bustling outdoor market at weekends. Exploring the impressive homes situated within excellent estates is one entertaining way to spend your Sunday. Visit Holkham Hall and its remarkable topiary, or the stately, Jacobian manor of Blickling Estate for a trip you'll never forget.
