Norfolk in Summer – A Treasure Trove of Adventures!

North Norfolk in summer is just beautiful and is a perfect place to make memories with friends and family. From seals basking in the sunshine, to walking the famous Pedlars Pathway and stopping off for an ice cream in one of our seaside towns, North Norfolk has it all!

From Cromer to Brancaster, Hunstanton to Wells-Next-The-Sea, there is literally a beach to suit everyone. For the more touristy sites, head to New Hunstanton which has shops, arcades, donut stalls and a fairground which makes it perfect for a day out with the kids. A short walk round and you can sit in the sun under the beautiful Old Hunstanton cliffs and search for beasties in the rock pools. Soft sand and quiet bays await you at Wells and you can drive round to Cromer and try your luck crabbing off the pier.

Stately Homes and History:
Norfolk is full to the brim of Stately homes, each with their own stories and tales that will delight you all. Most of the properties are national Trust owned now and as such have plenty to see and do for children that will help make history exciting. See if you can catch a glimpse f the Queen at Sandringham, go Zorbing on the great lakes of Holkham Hall or get lost in the grounds of Blickling Hall and get inspiration for your own garden from their immaculate landscaping.

Seal Spotting:
Norfolk is famous for their seals and how easy it is to spot them. With plenty of excursions available, you can book yourself and the family onto a little boat and skirt across the waves to go and see them in their natural habitat, laying about on the rocks and sand dunes of Blakely Point. Keep in mind that this activity is ruled by the sea and the weather so keep an eye on the tides and the forecast to plan your day.

Animals and Dinosaurs:
Away from the coast, but just as exciting, Banham Zoo is a great day out for you and the family. A conservation zoo, the animals are happy and well looked after by experts and animal lovers and it is full to the brim with things to do and see and all manner of animals including giraffes, tigers, monkeys and more! And if you fancy stepping back in time, Norfolk is home to the Dinosaur Park. Not quite Jurassic Park, but you can learn all about the prehistoric age without the fear of having to run and hide from a T Rex.

And after all that, you’re bound to be hungry, so why not get yourself over to us here at The nelson in Burnham Market for freshly cooked meals and a family atmosphere!
