Sightseeing
Caister-on-Sea has a lovely expanse of sands backed by delightful grassy dunes. It has all the usual seaside facilities needed to ensure the whole family has a relaxing time with fun for the children. The name of the resort comes from the Latin "castra" meaning fortress, there are substantial remains of a Roman town to be seen on the road leading towards Filby. There is little doubt that Caister has a long history, it was founded in the 2nd century AD and was one of the chief towns inhabited by the Iceni. Caister Castle is a magnificent ruin of a once mighty fortress built by Sir John Fastolf in the 1430's, it's about 2 miles from the cottage by car heading west . This is interesting for many reasons, not least its connections with Shakespeare and a fascinating motor museum.
