J is for JOY!

After all, it's what you come to the seaside hoping to find – and you'll find an abundance of it in Norfolk. Here's some of our favourite things to do to achieve that feeling of gleefulness!
  • Enjoyed the adrenaline rush of a big ride on Great Yarmouth seafront… WOO-HOOOOOO!
  • Dune jumped at Holkham or Wells or Winterton-on-Sea.
  • Taken a boat trip from Morston or Blakeney to see the delightful Common and Grey seals at Blakeney Point… 'AAAARGH! Bless!'
  • Or… tromped over the dunes and through the marram grass to get to Horsey beach, where the Broads meet the North Sea… you'll usually find a few seals there too.
  • Eaten fish and chips out of paper wrapping, liberally doused with vinegar and sprinkled with salt. BLISS!
  • Do the traditional things on Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile – roll up your trousers legs and have a paddle, eat an ice cream, build a sandcastle.
  • Been to a show at the Pavilion Theatre, Cromer – the last end-of-pier theatre in Europe.
  • Been crabbing on the quays at Blakeney or Wells, or from the pier at Cromer, all in north Norfolk.
  • Watched the sunset at Hunstanton, the only east coast resort that faces west!
  • Choo! Choo! Enjoyed an exhilirating journey on the steam North Norfolk railway, othewise known as the Poppy Line, between Sheringham and Holt.
  • Kite surfed at Hunstanton where, because of sandbanks and shallow water, you get some of the best kitesurfing in the country.
  • Imagined you're Gulliver on his travels at the Merrivale Model Village in Great Yarmouth.
  • Salivate as you watch your donuts being freshly made on the batter-to-sugar conveyor belt at Great Yarmouth then walk along Marine Parade while you tuck in WITHOUT licking your lips!
  • Ridden a Snail at JOYLAND (yes, really!) in Great Yarmouth. They're faster than you might think!
