Definitely one of the quirkiest dining experiences in Wells, the Albatross is a former Dutch cargo ship, moored at the Quay. Drop in for a pint and watch the tide come in, or try one of the famous dutch pancakes. Live music on Friday and Saturday nights.

Good food, good beer, great atmosphere... If you don't fancy driving, the Coasthopper bus stop is just outside (and you can catch the bus from Wells: the bus stop is on Station Road, just round the corner from Elgin Cottage). Also perfectly situated for boat trips to see the seals trips, which operate from the quay in Morston. Temple’s Seal Trip tickets can be purchased from the bar of The Anchor. Beer and boats - the perfect North Norfolk day out!

“Four miles of white-gold sand, with shells to collect and pine woods to explore.” The Times Holkham is a stunningly beautiful beach and even on the busiest bank holiday it never gets crowded. It's a short drive from Wells and here is a large car park at the entrance to the beach (don't forget change for parking), take the Coasthopper (stop is on Station Road, just around the corner from the cottage), or take a stroll from Wells beach.

Located 10 miles along the coast from Wells, Titchwell is the most popular reserve on the North Norfolk coast and a must for amateur and seasoned birdwatchers. Board walks and paths lead towards the coast past fresh water, brackish water and tidal lagoons, filled with birds, eventually reaching an enormous sandy beach. Enjoy lunch at the 'Feeding Station' cafe.

Blakeney village is set on a small hill leading down to the harbour and is home to many pubs, restaurants and an ice cream shop. Wide open spaces and uninterrupted views of the natural and dynamic coastline make this a lovely place to visit. Blakeney Point, within Blakeney National Nature Reserve (National Trust), is a four-mile-long sand and shingle spit. Great for walks and seal spotting trips.

The 42 mile long Norfolk Coastal Path runs from Hunstanton to Cromer, passing through Holkham, Wells, Blakeney and Cley-next-the-Sea. Walking the path is a wonderful way of enjoying this stunning stretch of coast. The coasthopper bus service shadows the Norfolk Coast Path National Trail all the way along from Hunstanton to Cromer, so it’s really easy to take the bus, get off for a good walk, and rejoin the bus a bit further along the route.

Another stunning Norfolk beach with miles and miles of unspoilt golden sand, as far as the eye can see, and with the added bonus of housing the remains of an old shipwreck, seen when the tide is out. A lovely beach for children to play as the acres of space make it perfect for sandcastles, games of cricket, kite flying... but be very careful of the tides. Do not let your children wade out too far into the sea as the tides on this beach hide hidden sand banks which can be very treacherous.

Small but perfectly formed fascinating museum, packed with exhibits, including hands-on activities for children. Come and learn the story of a local hero - Henry Blogg, the longest serving RNLI man who served for more than 50 years, including two world wars. He launched an incredible 387 times, rescuing 873 people! The lifeboat station (on Cromer pier) is also well worth a visit.
