As East of England escapes go, this pretty north Norfolk fishing town gets our gold medal! With wonderful wildlife, winding waymarked trails, serene salt marshes and a sweeping stretch of sandy beach, you'd be hard pressed to find somewhere more picturesque. Visit the Norfolk fishing town, a great location for activity breaks, walking holidays and relaxing weekends away. Holkham beach is a highlight. It’s four miles long and has been described as one of the most unspoiled, beautiful stretches of sand in the UK.
Explore the creeks and salt marshes teeming with bird life, walk along sandy beaches on a seaside break, or take a boat trip to see the seal colony. You could even go crabbing on the quayside before tucking into the local fish and chips! Castle, church and abbey ruins are just waiting to be discovered, along with art galleries, steam railways, a reconstructed Iron Age village and cycle ways galore.
