Where is the prettiest place in Norfolk UK?

Well, there’s a question and a half! As a former Premier League manager once said, ‘We all like to think we have the best-looking spouse at home’.

And what’s the criteria, and at what time of the year are we talking about? Wells-next-the-Sea beach looks very nice speckled in snow, the Waveney Valley’s rapeseed and wheat fields look very dramatic in Spring and Summer. Snowflakes at Walsingham or bluebells at Foxley Wood in Spring? Striking browns and oranges in Thetford Forest in Autumn?

There’s no way of saying definitively ‘Where is the prettiest place in Norfolk?’

So, instead, we’ll give you a selection of some pretty scenes and you can make up your own minds!
