Set in unspoilt and gently undulating countryside, dotted with farms and woodland, this part of south Norfolk has much to offer the visitor. With walks from the Hall itself it is easy to escape everyday life for a while and immerse yourself in nature’s back yard and when you want to go further and explore, The Broads National Park and fantastic sandy east coast beaches are just a short drive away. For a more novel route to The Broads, take the Reedham Chain Ferry across the River Yare ; explore the waterways on foot or take to a kayak or canoe, bird watch on the way and don’t forget the picnic! This is great cycling country too, being such a flat landscape under Norfolk’s wide blue skies, there is a special calmness to this area that is unbeatable.

The beaches on the east coast are not to be missed, sandy and long, they are great family playgrounds that are often underpopulated, even in the summer. For those who enjoy arts and culture with a bit of retail therapy thrown in, Norwich is a beautiful city to discover just 12 miles away and history buffs will enjoy a visit to Norwich Castle whilst here. Being a foodie county with a growing reputation there are some great pubs, restaurants, cafés and farm shops to find and if you want to just stay put you can even have vintage tea delivered to your door! There is something for everyone here in this lesser-known part of the county and it’s just waiting to be discovered.

Cobbled streets, historic landmarks and riverside walks make this ancient town a perfect escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. Located in the heart of the city, on Gentleman’s Walk is the outdoor market which hosts around 200 stalls selling local produce and gifts. The medieval Norwich Castle is well worth a visit, the keep itself is open to the public as well as the dungeons, museum and gallery of art collections. The Cow Tower is one of England’s first artillery blockhouses and was an important strategic defence of the city. Another iconic heritage site is Norwich Cathedral where tours are available and visitors can stroll the cloisters and gardens.

The Forum is a public venue offering free exhibitions and events, there is a cafe and library onsite. Just outside the city is the beautiful 80 acre Eaton Park, this is perfect for an action filled family outing, there is a skate park, tennis court, basketball, cricket & football pitches. In the Summer, concerts are hosted under the domed bandstand, the lily pond & gardens are a haven for wildlife.

Tudor houses, cosy tea rooms and antique shops line the famous Elm Hill, also within the city are the formal Plantation Gardens and the Theatre Royal. Bus tours are a great way for sightseeing, and the Bridewell Museum offers a fascinating insight into the industry and trade of the city. Packed with historical artefacts and inventions, this building has been a tobacco warehouse, a prison and a shoe factory in its previous life.


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.
