Ideal for

Norfolk has something for everyone, from the magic of the Norfolk Broads to the beautiful coastal towns and cathedral cities. With few hills, it’s ideal for walking and cycling too.

Nearby

A stay at Norfolk would not be complete without visiting Thorpe Forest or the mystical network of rivers and lakes which is home to a quarter of the nation’s rarest species. Cycle, walk, sail, canoe, fish or simply sit and savour; whatever you choose, the Broads will reward.

Sightseeing

A good way to take in the sights is on Norfolk’s longest narrow-gauge railway, which runs through the beautiful Norfolk Broads. Norfolk has plenty of museums such as Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery. Another excellent attraction is the English Whisky Company, which is well worth a visit, whatever the weather.
