Buildings, beaches and the Broads, that’s Norfolk if you had to pick just three things to sum up the county. Tucked away in the corner of East Anglia, Norfolk has been an important region throughout history, with many reigns leaving their mark in the form of castles, cathedrals and stately homes that are now popular with tourists. Visitors are also drawn by the seaside resorts along the coast that offer the quintessential British holiday experience, as well as the Norfolk Broads, the country’s largest protected wetland and a paradise for wildlife and people alike.

Places to go in Norfolk

When looking at Norfolk’s rich heritage there is no better place to start than the historic city of Norwich, home to iconic buildings dating back to the early 11th Century. The city’s oldest buildings are its castle and cathedral; both are stunning examples of Norman architecture and have been well preserved over the centuries. Also in Norwich are St Andrew's & Blackfriars' Halls, among the most complete medieval friary complex surviving in England. Outside the city, there are some awe-inspiring abbeys and stately homes to see. The 12th Century Wymondham Abbey is known for its giant twin towers, while Sandringham Estate is the Queen’s country retreat. The Norfolk coast is dotted with seaside resorts offering everything you’d expect from a holiday on home soil. Great Yarmouth is the most famous with its ‘Golden Mile’ seafront, market, pier and theatre, but smaller resorts like Cromer and Hunstanton offer a nice low-key alternative.
