We think nowhere else in the country has Norfolk's diverse range of visitor attractions, with adventure parks, zoos, aquariums, play barns and aerial antics in the forest. There's the thrills and fun of the traditional seaside resorts like Great Yarmouth with amusements and rides, or you could head to one of Norfolk's beautiful beaches, or take a boat out on the Broads, Britain's Magical Waterland.

Festivals & culture

You name it, we've probably got a festival for it… ranging from music, maritime, outdoors, walking and literature to street art, circus and bowls! The Norfolk & Norwich Arts Festival is the oldest in the country, the Norfolk Food & Drink Festival is now the largest in the UK, with weekends and other activities spread over six weeks, and the Thursford Christmas Spectacular is probably the biggest Christmas production outside the West End! Whatever time of year you want to visit, there'll be something happening.

Norfolk Spring

Be here in Spring when the county explodes with colour again. There's wonderful snowdrop and bluebell walks in the woods, there'll be chances to feed the new-born lambs and look out for rare birds and wildlife, and you're pretty much guaranteed being able to find a huge expanse of beach all to yourselves… with maybe a few seals waving at you from the sea. As the temperature rises, it's a great time to explore Norfolk's wonderful coast and countryside, particularly by bike or on foot.




Norfolk Autumn

Autumn is a great time to be in Norfolk, whether it's having fun in the forests, taking long walks on our huge beaches, or enjoying some of the best food and drink you'll ever have - particularly our north Norfolk mussels and other shellfish.

Heritage & history

Norfolk is a treasure house of stately homes, legacies of the wool trade and agricultural revolution when Norfolk was the wealthiest county in the country and Norwich second in importance only to London. Beginning with prehistory and ancient history, you'll find Roman forts, more Saxon round-towered churches than anywhere else, castles and a towering cathedral made by the Norman Conquerors, and the Royal Family's country home. Norwich is the best preserved medieval city in northern Europe and you'll not tire of wandering the wonderful cobbled streets and alleys.

Norfolk Coast

Norfolk has more than 90 miles of superb coast, with huge expanses of pristine sand, tidal creeks and saltmarshes, towering cliffs, quaint quays and harbours, shingle spits, and family-friendly seaside resorts, such as Great Yarmouth. You can build sandcastles, go rockpooling or crabbing, go for a swim, take a boat trip to see the seals, spot rare or migrating birds, walk your dog, or just hire a beach hut, kick back and relax. And coast means seafood too… tasty crabs, tender lobsters, juicy fat mussels, mouth-watering oysters and fabulous fish.

Norfolk Broads

Norfolk is possibly most famous for the man-made Broads, more than 125 miles of navigable lock-free waterways set in beautiful countryside, with many charming and picturesque towns and villages, and fantastic wildlife. The big skies and sparkling landscape of marshland fields, feathery reeds and tangled woodlands are a perfect canvas for adventure and relaxation - time to reflect, space to explore, a magical opportunity to enjoy a fabulous break.

Food & drink

Norfolk has a fabulous larder thanks to the diverse landscape. From the water comes wonderful seafood and shellfish, and grazing and pasture land gives us wonderful beef and milk for cheeses, yoghurts and ice cream. Fertile reclaimed Fens and Broadland gives us superb fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables and in the Brecks the sandy, free-draining soil is ideal for pork and the heathland great for game. And then to enjoy all that lovely fare… in Michelin-starred restaurants, cafes and tearooms, family-friendly gastropubs, waterside and country inns or buy from delis, farm shops and farmers' markets and cook for yourselves!

It’s Norfolk's natural landscape of coast and countryside that makes it great for adventurous people of all ages. You can sail at sea or on the Broads, Britain's Magical Waterland, and watersports include kite surfing, canoeing and paddle boarding. There are aerial walkways, swinging ropes and high wires in the forests and cycling is great fun whether it's on quiet country lanes or off-road in the mud!

Natural World Norfolk

Norfolk has wild countryside and coast, woodlands, salt marshes, rock pools, Broads and rivers that all make an excellent environment for wildlife throughout the year. Norfolks birdwatching opportunities are second to none, particularly for the Winter migrations that include geese and swans. Winter's also the best time to see the seals in north Norfolk, when they pup, although any time of the year is good.
