Norfolk is a wonderful place to visit during Autumn. The majestic oaks and parklands turn vibrant hues of reds and oranges, hedgerows and woodland floors are ripe for a spot of foraging, and local game and popular shellfish are back on the menu. September sees the onset of many a foodie festival, whilst October makes way for events celebrating our wondrous local ales. During Autumn, Norfolk is also home to a host of festivals harking back to Paegan times around Halloween and Bonfire Night – our favourites include Fairyland Trust’s Real Halloween at Holt Hall and the bonfire and firework spectacular at Corpusty. Check out our events calendar for what’s on in the coming weeks.
At this time of year, the Norfolk landscape offers many opportunities for walking, which we heartedly recommend partnering with a well-earned pause at one of our many fantastic pubs en-route. Then there’s our cottages, with a host featuring open fires and woodburners – ideal for cosying up to after a day of exploring our enchanting county. Oh, and there’s always Norwich, and historic market towns such as Holt, where you can spend a break shopping, eating and… well, simply relaxing.
