The East Anglia region
A visit to Norfolk offers holidaymakers a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of busy life in Britain.
Around every corner there are pretty villages and historic churches, miles of unspoilt beaches, countryside and rivers teeming with wildlife and relaxed towns and a city with wonderful shops and tempting cafes.
Outside Burnham Market there are plenty of places of local interest which can be reached by car, bike or Coasthopper bus.
Numerous sandy beaches along the North Norfolk Coast :- Brancaster, Thornham, Wells, Burnham Ovary Staithe And Holkham (made famous by Gwyneth Paltrow walking along the sand in the closing scene of Shakespeare in Love).
Holkham Hall, the stately home of Lord Coke, the Earl of Leicester, is a couple of miles away. Set in beautiful grounds and open to the public this is a great place for a bike ride and picnic.
Sandringham, the country residence of the Queen, is a short drive and also open to the public.
The area provides great opportunities for bird watchers particularly at Titchwell RSPB reserve, but also in numerous locations along the coastline.
For those who want the more traditional seaside experience head to Wells-Next-The-Sea for great fish and chips, ice creams, amusement arcades and crabbing off the harbour wall. Bikes can also be rented from here.
