North Norfolk is a fantastic destination for a holiday or mini-break for people of all ages. It’s ripe with history - from the prehistoric people who dug peat and formed the famous broads, to the Romans, the Danes and beyond. After long period of relative slumber, North Norfolk has now definitely entered the 21st century. Sometimes known as ‘Kensington-by-the-sea’ we have a fantastic range of shops, pubs and restaurants to tempt you. Best of all, as Norfolk has avoided the over-industrialisation which has scarred other areas of British coastline, there are a wealth of natural attractions for you to enjoy.
Whether your tastes run to Stately homes, Steam Railways, places of pilgrimage or even tanks, this area has something for you. North Norfolk was also the birthplace of Lord Nelson, so you'll often find references to this important historical figure.
Most of Norfolk's coastline is designated an Area of Outstanding National Beauty - it has some of the finest sand dunes, mudflats, reedbeds and salt marshes in Britain. The coast is wonderful for bird watchers as an amazing variety of species can be spotted throughout the year
An important part of any holiday is rest and relaxation. Whether you fancy getting your blood pumping with a horse ride, whetting your appetite with a round of golf, or simply heading for the beach, North Norfolk's got something for you.
Norfolk has wholeheartedly welcomed the recent gastropub revolution, and now boasts a range of great pubs, cafes and restaurants, many with its fantastic local seafood.
