Beautifully located on the mid-Eastern coast of England, you'll find plenty of diverse delights in Norfolk, including over 90 miles of natural coastline, stunning countryside, and wildlife-steeped forest land. Not to mention an abundance of unusual places to stay (though we hear Sandringham is not currently accepting guests!)
You've probably already heard of the Norfolk Broads, a man-made National Park equipped with lock-free waterways ideal for canal boats, lined with charming towns and villages. South Norfolk's Waveney Valley is the place to go for scenic countryside, along with eco-friendly Breckland, which boasts one of the most distinctive UK landscapes.
Beach-wise, Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile is a haven for lovers of the traditional British seaside holiday. The seaside resort of Hunstanton is more than worth a few sandy toes too, while North Norfolk is renowned for its endlessly glorious coastline. Birdwatching here is a must, while Blakeney Point boasts a stunning seal colony accessible by boat.
King's Lynn is home to Sandringham, the Queen's rural home, as well as spectacular nature reserves, rolling countryside and sparkling Fens waterlands. Bustling Norwich, meanwhile, is the UK's most preserved medieval city, with a cultural scene that's hard to beat. Norwich is also England's first UNESCO city of literature, so if you've hit a creative block, you're sure to find a new story here!
From thriving market towns, heritage sites, golden beaches and boasting some of the most scenic walking country around, an energising trip to Norfolk is sure to feature at the top of your "favourite holidays of all time" list.
