A holiday at Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk coast will be sure to please all ages. It is home to a number of quaint individual shops, traditional country pubs, a beautiful sandy beach and large pinewoods. The quay wall at Wells is famous for being the best place to sit and eat your fish & chips while enjoying the magnificent views out to sea - just try not to let the Seagulls pinch too many chips!
You can walk along the beach road, alternatively take the miniature steam railway down to the beach and view the novelty colourful beach huts – which if you are planning to spend some time on the beach you may decide to hire one during your stay. You can also explore the large pinewood area which leads through to Holkham, widely known for its award winning golden sandy beach, large estate and majestic stately hall.
For a unique experience why not visit The Albatros – an 18th Century North Sea Schooner sailing boat permanently moored at the harbour, (you can’t miss it) here you can enjoy Dutch pancakes & real ales on deck with stunning views or go below deck in the cosy former cargo hold.
Wells is often described as a family friendly destination and holds various events throughout the year including the very popular carnival week which is packed full of live music entertainment, food & craft events, children’s activities such as sandcastles / gullying competitions, and a large procession of floats that make their way round the town. Whatever time of the year you decide to visit, you will find Wells-next-the-Sea to be a friendly & fun holiday location.
