Great Yarmouth

The resort town of Great Yarmouth is a hive of activity and holds a number of attractions for all the family. Play on the sandy beach or visit the Pleasure Beach and the Golden Mile, the Sea Life Centre, Time & Tide Museum or the medieval town hall – there’s lots to do!

Caister-on-Sea

Caister, once an ancient Roman village, is now a popular friendly holiday resort with sandy beaches and grassy dunes. Visit Caister Hall, the ruins of mid 15th century moated Caister Castle which now houses a car collection and the foundations of a Roman construction.

Thrigby

The small village is home to Thrigby Hall and Wildlife Gardens, a 250 acre family attraction celebrated for its collection of Asian animals in the marvellous grounds and gardens of Thrigby Hall. Get face to face with the animals and learn about wildlife conservation.

Ranworth

The impressive church of St. Helen, the “Cathedral of the Broads” is a Ranworth landmark where you can climb the tower to take in impressive views. Nearby the floating Broads Wildlife centre at the Norfolk Wildlife Trust site at Ranworth has a boardwalk that passes through woodlands and reedbeds.

Wroxham

Actually two villages, Wroxham and Hoveton St. Johns is the capital of the Norfolk Broads, a vibrant humming location with plenty of cafes and restaurants. Hire a boat, visit Hoveton Hall Gardens, enjoy the riverside park and Bure Valley Steam Railway or wander round the Wroxham Barns craft centre.

Happisburgh

Happisburg has the oldest and only independent working lighthouse in the UK built in 1790 and overlooking the Haisborough Sands. You can climb the 133 steps of the 15th century St. Mary’s church tower to enjoy views of the coast and countryside.

Beautiful Broads

Peace and tranquillity – two words to describe the idyllic waterways of Norfolk’s national park. Hire a boat to explore the miles of Broads and tie up at a picture postcard pub for lunch. Visit bustling Wroxham for a slightly more vibrant atmosphere and choice of restaurants.

Family Fun

Hit the traditional resort of Great Yarmouth for a bundle of family fun. Explore the Golden Mill, ride the Pleasure Beach, play crazy golf and visit the model village. Whatever you choose you’ll have fun – and don’t forget the ice cream and candy floss!

Norfolk Nature

Get back to nature in rural Norfolk. Take in the coast – watch for seals and the occasional whale, explore the Broads for fish, herons, kingfishers and otters, and visit RSPB reserves to see local and migrating birds – you may even hear the elusive bittern.
