Just a few hours' travel from the bustle of London, discover the stunning landscape - shaped by the sea, wind and rich local history. Whether you are looking for somewhere to relax and enjoy nature, an adventurous outdoor holiday with the family, or just a place to explore, North Norfolk has a unique atmosphere that is certain to delight.
The region boasts exceptional nature reserves for any budding bird watchers and the North Norfolk Heritage Coast Path is great for cycling (with local bicycle hire available), and walking to take in the beauty of the coastline. There are also horse riding facilities that provide horse trekking excursions as an alternative way of seeing the North Norfolk countryside.
