Martin Edwards:

  • RSPB Titchwell - very popular bird reserve where countless seabirds, marsh harriers, avocets make their home.
  • Coal Barn and Thornham harbour - Coal Barn, featured in Dickens' Great Expectations, sits in a unique position alone on the water’s edge at Thornham harbour next to the marshes and creeks. It was mainly used by smugglers in 18th century.
  • Sandringham Royal Estate - the Queen’s own country estate. For much of the year, it is possible to explore the house, museum & gardens with its pretty lake and flowerbeds. You can visit the woodland and heathland of the country park free of charge.
  • Norfolk Lavender - contains world famous lavender gardens as well as an oil distillery, Hornbeam Maze and for children, a petting barn.
  • Holkham Hall is one of the magnificent houses in England, with wonderful paintings and furnishings to be seen.
  • Beaches - visit the beautiful, charming coastal villages and towns that pepper the coast, from Hunstanton in the east to Cromer in the west, stopping off at Brancaster, Wells-next-the-Sea and Sheringham.
