There's a plethora of things to see and do in Norfolk. Here is just a small sample of ideas:

Stroll the Victorian seaside town of Cromer famous for its delicious Cromer crabs, or stop by Blakeney, one of Norfolk's prettiest coastal villages, and head for the quayside. Keep the kids amused and do a spot of crabbing (or "gillying") and catch your own!

Head for Burnham Market and admire the classic brick and flint houses whilst browsing the clothing and crafts shops there, and don't forget to pick up some fabulously fresh local fish for supper.

Hire a boat in the Norfolk broad's and navigate the lakes and rivers. They're home to a huge variety of birds and other wildlife. If you're interested in history, Norfolk boasts over 50 museums to explore and plenty of stately homes including Holkham Hall, an 18th century mansion with fabulous paintings by Rubens and Van Dyck, or Houghton Hall and its superb five acre walled gardens and model soldier collection.

Kings Lynn nestled on the banks of the River Great Ouse, is rich in maritime history dating back to the 12th century and well worth a visit. Norwich city is a great place for a weekend break or a day out if the weather lets you down. Its Norman castle dates from William the Conqueror's reign and is first mentioned in 1075 and its Anglican Cathedral dates from 1096. There's also lots of shopping opportunities too and numerous little restaurants to grab a bite to eat in.
