The East Anglia region
North Norfolk and its unique coastline and countryside makes for an interesting holiday destination. Seaside towns, sandy beaches, quaint villages, unique salt marshes and rolling countryside with panoramic skies give North Norfolk its distinctive flavour.
North Norfolk has a variety of things to do whilst holidaying in the area; from family day’s out looking at the Steam and traditional Fairground Rides at the Thursford Collection or investigating the largest private collection of Military vehicles at the Muckleburgh Military Museum, visiting the Queen’s country house at Sandringham or wandering through the gardens at Holkham Hall, taking a boat trip to see the seals at Blakeney Point or spending an afternoon riding the Poppy line on a steam train to see the Norfolk countryside to just building sandcastles and enjoying the seaside at one of the Blue Flag beaches along the North Norfolk coast. North Norfolk attractions can cater for all ages and there are various outdoor activities available for the more adventurous.
North Norfolk is well known for its 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.
A great place for a break in Norfolk has to be Holt. This pretty Georgian market town, nestled in the North Norfolk countryside, dominated by lovely Georgian architecture dating back to the rebuilding of the town following the Great Fire in the early 18th century. Holt is brimming over with many interesting antique, arts and crafts and gift shops. There are also plenty of lovely places to eat and with the North Norfolk coast within easy reach you can walk off some of those extra calories while breathing the refreshing sea air.
A popular time to visit is just before Christmas, as the town’s Christmas lights display always attracts people anxious to catch the Christmas spirit while looking at the interesting selection of shops here.
June is also a busy time of year, as the parks attract visitors keen to enjoy the long summer days and the annual arts festival provides entertainment and culture for all. However, any time of year is good for soaking up the relaxed atmosphere and admiring the town’s elegant buildings and historic streets.
Things to Do in and around Holt
Stroll around the town of Holt and you will soon feel all your worries slip away. Rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1708, the town has a wonderful character with colourful Georgian buildings and a modest parish church that is open to visitors. A must during your visit to Holt has to be a journey on the North Norfolk Railway. Also known as the Poppy Line, a steam train takes its passengers from Holt station through some of North Norfolk's most stunning countryside, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, to the Victorian seaside town of Sheringham. Look out for the seas of red poppies and then you'll know where the Railway gets its name!
Another of Norfolk's top attractions can be found just a short distance from Holt - Letheringsett Mill - Norfolk's only flour producing watermill. Built in 1802, visitors can see working demonstrations of this incredible machine, enjoy guided tours and browse the Mill Shop.
For those wanting a bit of heritage, visit the Muckleburgh Collection - an extensive military museum plus restaurant and shop. Or get in touch with nature at Holt Country Park. The beautiful landscape of woodland, meadows, flora and fauna is a haven for wildlife of all sizes and is great place for the whole family to visit. Children will love the play area, while there is a nature trail, observation tower, pond and picnic areas. A number of special events are organised throughout the year including Nightjar Walks, mini beast safaris and treasure hunts. A little farther afield, why not visit Felbrigg Hall, Garden & Park - a wonderful National Trust property with woodland and lakeside walks, or Sheringham Park, a beautiful countryside park on North Norfolk coast.
