Places to stay in Norfolk

Norfolk may be fairly flat, but it is still home to some beautiful rural countryside. For those on a family break, the open space without the hassle of going up and down endless hills can in fact be a real bonus! At the heart of the county is the city of Norwich, once the largest English city outside of London and home to many historic buildings dating back as far as the 11th century.

Cutting through the Norfolk countryside are the Broads, a network of rivers and lakes which are extremely popular for boating breaks. At the coast, there is the bustling tourism hotspot of Great Yarmouth and the more picturesque bays of Hunstanton and Sheringham.

Five Free Things To Do In Norfolk

Discover medieval Norwich
The pedestrianised streets of Norwich city centre make strolling around the old town much easier, and the The Elm Hill and Timberhill Trails will lead you and the family through ancient streets and medieval buildings - including the 11th century cathedral - which are still in use.

The Broads
Even if you don't get out on the water, just strolling along the footpaths by the Broads is a great way to enjoy the Norfolk countryside, while the popularity of the routes mean that pubs and amenities are never too far away!

The Hawk and Owl Trust
Located at Sculthorpe, the Hawk and Owl Trust reserve is a cracking way to combine a walk in nature with learning about some of the country's most majestic birds of prey in their natural environment.

Baconsthorpe Castle
For kids who enjoy a bit of history, roaming around the 15th century ruins of Baconsthorpe Castle, located near Sheringham, will be a real treat.

Enjoy the coast
While Great Yarmouth has always been a big tourist draw, for a more relaxed day at the seaside you might want to try the picturesque beaches at Cromer, Hunstanton or Wells-next-the-Sea - perfect for some sun, sea and sand with the family.
