Details for The Norfolk Coast

The Norfolk Coast has a backdrop of rugged heathland and boasts everything from spectacular cliffs, pine forests, miles of golden sandy beaches, traditional seaside resorts and quaint fishing villages. The climate is one of the sunniest in England which makes it an ideal place for family holidays or a relaxing break.

Wildlife is abundant amongst the heather and bracken clad cliff tops, which are home to many species of birds, insects and flora. Along the coast there are seal colonies and marshland nature reserves. Walkers can enjoy the coastal paths and the long distance Peddlars Way and the North Norfolk Coast Path both start at Holme next the Sea.

The busy little fishing harbour at Brancaster is the place to buy freshly caught fish from the local shops, and the cliff top is a perfect place to sit and watch the colourful boats coming in and out with their catch. Just down the coast is Blakeney, a picturesque village with traditional flint cottages set in to the hillside. The village has shops and tea rooms and offers boat trips which sail to Blakeney Point, where there is large seal colony. Hundreds of grey and common seals can be observed playing in the sea or sunbathing on the beaches.

Hunstanton St Edmund is a very popular Victorian seaside resort which still has all the traditional family...
