LocationCromer

A classic seaside town with colourful shops and a traditional pier, which houses a pavilion theatre with variety shows and cabaret. The RNLI museum has interactive displays of life boating and pays tribute to Henry Blogg, one of Norfolks heroes who served 53 years working on the Cromer coast. The town museum has fascinating archives of the fishing trade and collections of fossils all discovered locally.

The Cromer Boating Lake is a fantastic family site with a picnic area, trampolines and putting green. There is a choice of canoes and boats to paddle about in. There are elevated views of the town from the cliff top walk to Overstrand, this takes visitors past the Royal Cromer Golf Club and the lighthouse. A centre piece of the town is the church of St Peter & St Paul, for those brave enough to venture up the 172 steps to the tower there are views of the pier and coastline.

On the outskirts of the town is Amazona Zoo, specialising in South American wildlife including caimans, jaguars and monkeys. Hillside Sanctuary is another great day out for animal lovers, with rescued shire horses and donkeys. There is a museum on site which has collections of agricultural machinery and blacksmith equipment. Blickling Estate has over 950 acres of woods and parkland to explore. Baconsthorpe Castle is worth a visit; wander through the unspoilt ruins of this 15th century fortified manor.

Norfolk

Located on the east coast of England, facing Europe across the North Sea, Norfolk is one of the UK's most rural counties, with over forty percent of its population living in just four towns – Norwich, Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn and Thetford. Adjacent to The Wash, in whose mud the medieval King John famously lost the Crown Jewels in 1216, Norfolk's geography is that of low plains or “fens”, which makes it along with neighbouring Suffolk feel more like northern countries of European mainland (Belgium and Holland) than the rest of England which is predominantly hilly.

In a similar way to that of the “low countries”, erosion and land reclamation have changed the coastline over the centuries, so that several towns (King's Lynn, for instance) which were once on the coast are now to be found several miles inland! The whole set-up makes for some very interesting topography as well as history and Norfolk is, for this reason, an interesting county to visit, almost as if it was a different country altogether!

East of England

This region includes the ceremonial counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. With a rich heritage there is much to see and do to suit all ages. The royal residency of Sandringham Estate is a must see and other historical points of interest include Castle Rising, Sutton Hoo and Somerleyton Hall. The medieval cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich are not to be missed and there are lots of pretty market towns and idyllic seaside resorts to choose from for a day trip. Alternatively for a slower paced holiday you may wish to visit The Broads or Thetford Forest, these areas are particularly popular for boating and spotting birdlife.
