Getting Out

Wells Harbour, Blakeney Quay and Morston all offer a great opportunity to try crabbing and the seal trips from Morston are the best way to experience the wildlife on Blakeney Point. But, if you are looking for lovely beaches, Holkham and Wells Next The Sea are not to be missed and Sheringham has an award-winning family beach too. This length of North Norfolk coast is wonderful for bird watching as well.

Other outdoor activities include cyclingwatersportshorseriding, and golf. There are a variety of excellent golf courses at Sheringham, Brancaster and Hunstanton (see the UK Golf Guide).

If you can tear your children away from Morston, there’s lots for them to do! We'd recommend the Sea Life Sanctuary at HunstantonBanham Zoo Nr AttleboroughNorth Norfolk Railway runs steam trains from Sheringham to Holt, and the Dinosaur Park at Weston Longville.

For evening fun, enjoy fish & chips and a visit to the cinema (Fakenham or Cromer) or a show at The Pavillion, Cromer Pier Theatre.

Rainy Days

If the weather isn’t so good and you can tear yourself from the coast, we suggest you consider the following...

The city of Norwich is less than an hour's drive away and has great shopping for all the family as well as a wonderful castle and cathedral. Please take a look at the tourist information site to check out opening times and other things to do in this fine city, www.visitnorwich.co.uk.

There are some interesting historic houses in the area too, and Holkham HallBlickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall are all worth a visit.

If you are in need of pampering, try Bellisima in Holt and for hair, we recommend Jordan Burr, also in Holt.

Shopping in Burnham Market and Holt is excellent, and there are plenty of lovely cafes for the occasional ‘rest stop’!
