A traditional resort famous for its unique striped cliffs and home to the legend of St Edmund. The Wolf Trail guides visitors through the journey of the first patron saint of England, beginning at the Esplanade Gardens across to the chapel remains and Lighthouse on the cliff tops. For families there are endless amusements in the fun fair and bowling alley. In the summer a Tractor Train offers trips along the seafront which is a fantastic tour of the town and its attractions. The Bandstand showcases a variety of brass band events and concerts on the green.

Offering lovely views of the sea, the Esplanade Gardens are part of the local Horticultural Trail and has bowling, crazy golf and a play area on site. This area is a haven for local wildlife; the Sealife Sanctuary has interactive rock pool experiences and displays of tropical sharks and turtles. There are also resident seals and otters. The nearby nature reserve of Titchwell Marsh is a popular spot for bird spotting enthusiasts; keep your eyes peeled for rare birds of prey gliding above the lagoon and migrating waders. Searles Sea Tours run exciting trips along the coast and out to the sandbanks where there is a large colony of seals. 

Sandringham House is a beautiful country retreat of the Royal family, located on a 20,000 estate there is a museum and visitor centres. There are acres of gardens to explore, and collections of memorabilia and vehicles.


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.
