If you’ve only got a few days to spend in Norfolk then the fine city of Norwich is an ideal place to start and we have a number of city apartments that are just waiting for you! Norwich is a city of culture, history and fabulous architecture ranging across many centuries. Enjoy the diverse shopping opportunities in its quiet lanes and modern malls. Wander along the River Wensum as it meanders through the city and enjoy the peace and sights if offers. And don’t forget to explore our magnificent cathedral.
Alternatively, you could take a short break in the Norfolk Broads to experience these unique natural inland waterways. Packed with things to do, the Broads offer lots of opportunities to get close to nature with their varied wildlife and many sites of special scientific interest. You could enjoy superb fishing, take a leisurely river cruise on a paddle steamer or hire a boat, canoe or kayak for the day to explore at your own pace. Whilst you’re out on the water, why not stop off at one of the many riverside pubs to sample their excellent local food and beer.
With a hundred miles of coastline to explore you really are spoilt for choice if you’re looking for a short break by the sea in Norfolk. You could head to our lovely wide sandy beaches for traditional family fun, to the north Norfolk salt marshes to forage for samphire and watch the migrating birds as they come and go throughout the year, or to the North Norfolk Coastal Path for walks along the cliff-tops, creeks and sand dunes. The Norfolk coast is diverse, unspoilt and definitely worth a visit – you won’t be disappointed.
And finally, the Norfolk countryside is peppered with brick and flint villages surrounded by tranquil lanes and off-road foot paths. There are long-distance trails that stretch across the county, such as Peddars Way from Hunstanton to Theford and Marriotts Way from Aylsham to Norwich. Norfolk is a county for walking and cycling, especially for families with its quiet lanes and gently rolling landscape. Arm yourself with a good map or guide book and discover the quiet charms of this beautiful county.
