In general, though, it’s best to just go with the flow - it may well rain during your holiday, so just embrace it and enjoy the area regardless.
Norfolk’s top attractions
Norfolk is a lovely place to explore, and just being here is enjoyable. Take a drive in any direction from Norfolk's many charming holiday cottages and it won’t be long until you come across something of interest, even if it’s just a pleasant view.
Norfolk has long been associated with the riches of London, and nowhere is that seen in more spectacular a fashion than at Sandringham Estate, which is owned by the Queen of England. Visitors are able to explore the grounds of the estate, which includes beautifully manicured gardens, woodland, and a lake, as well as the museum and part of the interior. For anyone with a soft spot for the Royal family, it’s an essential visit.
Norwich, the largest city in Norfolk, has plenty to offer those who book a Norfolk holiday letting. The highlight is the breathtaking Norwich Cathedral, which was built between 1096 and 1145. It’s a huge site, and also features the second tallest spire in England. Even if you’re not religious, you’ll want to dedicate at least half a day to rambling around this delightful, sublime building.
In the centre of the city you’ll find Norwich Castle, which was built from 1067 onwards. The castle is open to visitors and also features a museum and art gallery. Take a tour of the dungeon if you have children with you - they’ll love it.
Finally, make sure you take a trip along the Norfolk Broads, a network of rivers that runs through the heart of Norfolk.

One of the best places for the whole family is BeWILDerwood, which combines the outdoors and physical fun to create one of the best days out to be had in Norfolk.

This is a great way to give your children an afternoon they’ll always remember, and to get them enjoying the great outdoors.

Some beaches, such as Sheringham Beach, also have arcades and other sources of entertainment on the shore. Mundesley beach is also popular with families, due to the shallow water which little ones can swim in.
Beaches and coastlines of Norfolk
Norfolk has several beaches with different characters. Some are secluded while others bustle with all sorts of beach activities. There are plenty of placid beaches where kids can run, play and build sand castles, and lots of dog friendly beaches. The expansive coastline offers unique relaxing environment.
Great Yarmouth The exciting thing about the Great Yarmouth beach is its closeness to the Golden Mile – the buzzing esplanade between the Pleasure Beach and Britannia Pier. You only need to walk for a few minutes from the beach to grab a snack or shop for sun hats, sweets, and gifts. There is a frenzy of activities here: donkey riding, beach volleyball, boat tours, and amusement arcades.
Holkham Located near Anne’s Drive, Holkham beach offers a great spot for dogs to run and sniff around. Before reaching the expansive shoreline, you walk on a boardwalk that takes you through rows of big pine trees. Horse riders are also avid users of the beach.
Horsey Among all the beaches on the eastern coastline, Horsey is perhaps the most private. It's a pebble beach but has a peaceful atmosphere where you can meditate or just wallow in the picturesque views of the sea. When the sun is up, visitors get to meet the seals enjoying the day’s warmth. Lining the beach toward the inland is an excellent cooling shade when it gets too hot.
