Exploring Norfolk Bucket List

We’ve compiled a list of our favourite things to do in glorious Norfolk! First up are 3 different, but equally special trips…

Burnham Overy Staithe

Head over to Burnham Overy Staithe to enjoy a peaceful and secluded beach walk away from the hustle and bustle of the busier coastal areas. Park in Burnham Overy (if you use the beach car park be sure to check the high tide times!), and head out on the coastal path past the boats, salt marshes, wild animals and into the peaceful sand dunes.

It is around a mile walk to the beach and a gentle stroll will take around 25 minutes with plenty to see along the way. Once you are on the beach, the golden sand spans as far as the eye can see and you can walk for miles should you wish.   

Enjoy a bite to eat at The Hero in Burnham Overy, or pop along the coast to The Victoria at Holkham or The White Horse at Brancaster, both a short distance away.  

The Broads National Park

There is so much to do on and around The Broads and our tip top are:

– Hire a boat and meander towards horning to see some incredible characterful houses including traditional thatched properties in Wroxham and horning whilst passing a few miniature broads, incredible selection of wildlife and you might even see the spectacular sail boats through horning.

– Visit The Canoe Man and hire a canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard to see the waterways from a new angle. They have locations in Wroxham and Coltishall, with the later providing a lovely route from Coltishall down to Horstead Mill through the incredible water gardens. You can also stop at Colisthall common to relax in the sunshine or have a bite to eat or drink at the Rising Sun.

Watch the sunset at Cromer

Throughout the summer months Cromer is an incredible location to while away an evening. Enjoy some delicious fish and chips from either No.1 or Mary Jane’s and treat yourself to an ice cream for dessert. Walk along the promenade, down the pier and end up on the grass clifftop carpark to watch the sun dip down below the horizon. It’s pretty spectacular.
