Beaches, Parks and Walks
Fabulous stately hall. Interesting exhibits on the local farming community and how a big house was run. The walled garden is the best bit (I may be biased as I volunteer there!), but some people love the deer more. Great walks, lovely cafe, even zumba on a Tuesday morning. Fantastic outdoor playground for the kids. Lovely gift shop. I could go on...

You come to Morston to take a boat out to see the seals on Blakeney Point. It's a fabulous little trip and stunning to see both grey and common seals in large numbers in their natural habitat. Google to find which boats run when as they change with the tides.

The walk along the dykes among the salt-marshes out to the beach is simply perfect. Windmills, boats bobbing along, cattle and in the autumn all the geese coming in to roost. An absolute favourite walk.

Keeps being voted the best beach in the UK for a reason. The softest sand. The prettiest beach huts. Big blue sky. The occasional seal. And peace and quiet if you come early enough.

Another favourite beach, go left, go right, go straight ahead. If you're lucky you'll see the cavalry getting their horses wet. Fabulous new addition in the Lookout - part cafe, part nature centre, very environmentally focussed in all the good ways.

If you're heading west up the coast a lovely place to stop. Shop for clothes, knick knacks, at the farmshop or just eat at Eric's fish and chips. Always worth the visit.

Getting Around
A lot of fun for all. Narrow gauge jaunt from Wells to Walsingham - and back if you wish. Take a jumper as it's open air. Many events throughout the year. A charmingly gentle afternoon out.

Lovely authentic steam train from Holt to Sheringham. Cracking views through the countryside taking you back in time to a more gentle age. Fish and chips in Sheringham or high tea and a gentle journey back again.

Probably the best lunch view in Norfolk. Over the salt marshes, listen to the birds, get a terrace seat if warm, eat all the lobster and mussels you can. In the summer, Friday night barbecues.
