West Somerton is a small Broadland village tucked into a quiet corner of east Norfolk, super for all bird-watching enthusiasts! It has been featured in the BBC Coast programme and quoted by Nicholas Crane "as my favourite place on the Norfolk Broads". Certainly West Somerton has one of the prettiest staithes. Families will enjoy days out at the many attractions in the area: try Bewilderwood, great adventure for the children, or a day cruising the Broads. The sandy beaches at Winterton and Horsey are only two miles away, with the bustling seaside resort of Great Yarmouth a little further.

LocationGreat Yarmouth

The Golden Mile shows off the best of the quintessential British seafront, a colourful promenade of arcades, shops and funfairs. Joylands American Diner and the childrens Fun Park is packed with rides and attractions. Within the Great Yarmouth area there are over 15 miles of wide, sandy beaches ideal for bathing and beachcombing.

The Hippodrome Circus is a fantastic circus ring venue, shows include water stunts, acrobatics and comedy acts. The Sea Life Centre located on the Marine Parade displays many aquatic creatures as well as penguins, crocodiles and turtles. There are rock pools, underwater tanks for visitors to walk through and regular talks with feeding demonstrations.

The Merrivale Model Village has crazy golf and a miniature railway running throughout the animated scenes, and a collection of vintage slot machines in the Old Penny Arcade. The Waterside Rollesby is a fun boating and dining experience, with views from the restaurant of the local wildlife across The Broads. Fishing and dinghy hire are available, for the younger members of the family there is an outdoor play area.
As well as these vibrant additions to the town there is also a rich maritime heritage which is displayed in the Time & Tide museum and the Nelson Museum. A short drive from the town is Somerleyton Hall, open to visitors April through to September. This grand stately home is beautifully preserved inside and the 5000 acre estate has formal gardens and a 19th century maze.


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.
