Find fabulous wide, sandy beaches at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham and don't forget to visit historic Holkham Hall whilst you are there. Visit the charming Georgian town of Holt for its eclectic mix of art galleries, shops and eateries and seek out the Shell Museum at nearby Glandford to view interesting curios and the largest UK collection of shells. There is so much to see and do you will be spoilt for choice.

LocationWells next the Sea

This unspoilt harbour town is a fantastic base for exploring the North Norfolk coastline. There is a long sweeping sandy bay, with colourful beach huts and a variety of independent shops, tea rooms and amusement arcades. Visitors can stroll along the beach to Holkham Bay, another lovely way to travel to and from the town is the Wells Harbour Railway with views across to the harbour and the golf course. The Wells and Walsingham Railway is also a charming steam train route.

Amongst the moored boats in the harbour is the Albatros, one of the oldest sailing ships still afloat. Food and drink is served aboard, there is also live music and themed public events throughout the year. At the top of the main street of shops is the green, with a few nearby inns to choose from. The Whin Hill Ciderworks is the perfect venue to sample the local cider and apple juices.

There are boat trips out to Blakeney Point where the seals are often found basking on the sandbanks. The surrounding marshlands of Holkham Nature Reserve are a haven for migrating birds, larks and geese. From the town there are guided alpaca treks which is a fun and interesting way to explore the coastline.

Holkham Hall is open seasonally to the public and there are marked routes for walkers to explore the estate, which is also home to a large herd of deer. There is boat and canoe hire available from the lake.

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.
