The official visitor website for Norfolk

Now is a great time to visit Norfolk

With the Half Term Holiday around the corner, tourist attractions and venues in Norfolk are looking forward to welcoming you.

However, if you are living in a Tier Three area, could we please ask you to refrain from coming - for now. We can't wait to have you here again, but only when it is safe for everyone.

The Government has published new Covid guidance for safer travelling.

Day visits, short breaks and holidays are back on, but events and shows will take a little longer to happen again.

We'll start bringing them to your attention as they're announced...
