Located in the picturesque countryside of the Wensum and Bure Valleys, Reepham has a good choice of boutique stores and shops, there are regular antique fairs and market days. Also plenty of traditional pubs and cafes to choose from, the Kings Arms hosts live jazz music in the summer. There are several golf courses to choose from nearby.

St Marys church has been fully restored and displays Norman artefacts. Also the nearby village of Booton Church has a fascinating church which has been built on a medieval ruin. Just one mile from the town is the Whitwell & Reepham Railway, running diesel and steam engines. Marriott’s Way is a 26 mile rural trail perfect for walking or cycling along, this follows a disused rail track between Norwich and Aylsham. Through the Wensum river valley there are plenty of animals and water birds to spot. Foxley Woods is one of the largest woodlands in the county, and is a fantastic habitat for woodland birds and wildflowers.

If visiting the local area, North Elmham Chapel has the ruins of a Saxon cathedral. Blickling is a 950 acre estate where visitors can take a step back in time in the house with their collections of portraits and archives of photos. The estate is surrounded by beautiful countryside, and many of the walking routes connect with other paths including the Weavers Way.


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.
