Explore South Norfolk
South Norfolk has some of the county's most scenic and peaceful countryside, with winding lanes, thatched cottages, welcoming pubs and picturesque villages and market towns.
Nestled between the meandering Waveney Valley, the cultural delights of Norwich and Britain's magical waterland of the Norfolk Broads, south Norfolk is a wonderful location for that get-away-from-it-all break where there is still plenty to see and do.
South Norfolk has excellent long and short distance walking and cycling routes, and there's a lot to do for outdoor enthusiasts, anglers and nature-lovers.
The countryside is gently rolling with an abundance of woodland, farmland and narrow country lanes with grassy verges which are filled with wildflowers in the summer. There are 51 conservation areas in South Norfolk ensuring that village greens, historic buildings and ancient woodland are protected for future generations.
Here you'll still see 'narrow' or 'street' commons and greens, a reminder of the linear network of grazing verges that were used to sustain livestock on their way to market.
