About Norfolk

The county of Norfolk lies along the East coast of England. The Norfolk coastline, much of which is an officially designated 'area of outstanding natural beauty' is home to many wonderful seaside resorts with beautiful golden sandy beaches such as Great Yarmouth, Sheringham and Cromer. The Norfolk Broads, a series of ancient waterways renowned for it's birdlife and spectacular views are a must see. Norfolk has so much to offer from magnificent castles, historic buildings, grand stately homes and gardens to museums, steam railways and theme parks.
