The untamed ever changing beauty of North Norfolk's coastline & the rich appeal of its countryside & meandering byways make this a destination for all seasons. North Norfolk has always earned its living from the land & the sea, & this special relationship is apparent in every corner, from the towering, opulent churches built on the profits of a thriving medieval wool trade to the fishing boats pulled up on the shore. The dramatic landscape is a sanctuary for wildlife, ideal for bird watching.
Charming market towns and picture-postcard villages, where lovingly husbanded estates radiate around majestic stately homes. A wander along the North Norfolk coast is a trip through pretty villages & untamed scenery. From the vast expanse of Holkham Bay in the west, to the pristine sands of Sea Palling in the east, three quarters of North Norfolk's 43 miles of coastline is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Whether you crave the solitude of windswept beaches or prefer sunbathing on the seafront of a bustling resort town, there is a stretch of shore for you. Holkham beach is a breathtaking panorama - so broad that at low tide, it is a mile's walk across golden sand from the fringe of pine woods to the water. At Wells stilt-high colourful beach huts look out across the beach.
Blakeney Point offers a wilderness walk along dunes, rare terns breed in the safety of the National Trust's reserve. Near Cley, the Norfolk Wildlife Trust's new visitor centre gives spectacular views across the reeded bird sanctuary. Sheringham, Cromer, Overstrand & Mundesley hark back to Victoian & Edwardian times, where crab pots & buoys adorn the seafronts.
