100 things to do in Norfolk 30-21
30 Flown a kite from Beeston Bump, a 203 feet high point on the Cromer ridge of undulating cliffs. A geological feature called a kame, the Bump looks like a giant molehill – and is ideal for kite-flying. On the beach below can be found stunning flint formations, called paramoudras – known here as pot stones.
29 Met the Crocklebogs, Twiggles and Boggles at BeWILDerwood, a huge forest of family fun and adventure. You'll be entranced by storytelling, boat trips, marsh walks, jungle bridges, treehouses and zip wires.
27 Hired a beach hut for the day, our very own garden shed by the seashore. The ultimate holiday 'home-from-home' and a haven from our inconsistent weather, you can forget about sandy towels and flapping windbreaks! They're available at Wells-next-the-Sea, Hunstanton and Cromer. Details from the tourist information centres.
25 Visited 'England's Nazareth', Walsingham, famed for its religious shrines and a major pilgrimage centre since the 11th century when Saxon noblewoman Richeldis de Faverches had a vision of the Virgin Mary.
24 Ogled the fabulous food selection at Bakers & Larners of Holt. Some say this is the Fortnum and Mason of Norfolk. The rest of the department store is a wonderful step back in time to how things used to be, a contemporary Grace Bros.
23 Been on the nature trails and woodland walks at Pensthorpe, home of BBC's Springwatch for many years. In the beautiful and tranquil Wensum Valley, Pensthorpe is a showcase for British wildlife and nature conservation. And if it's good enough for Bill Oddie and Kate Humble…!
22 Walked in the footsteps of Black Shuck! In 1901 Arthur Conan Doyle, on a golfing holiday at the Links Hotel in West Runton, dined with the Cabbell family at Cromer Hall. It was here, after hearing about the legend of Black Shuck, he conceived the idea for The Hound of the Baskervilles. Black Shuck, a ferocious ghostly black dog from hell, the size of a small horse, with malevolent, flaming red eyes, is said to appear from the depths of Beeston Bump.
21 Tasted proper English whisky at the St George's Distillery, the first of its kind in over 100 years. You can take a tour and see how whisky is made, using the best local ingredients. Hic!
