A sleepy, almost forgotten corner of rural England with its beautiful
unspoilt coastline and unique wetland landscape of the Norfolk Broads.
“It’s very flat” Noel Coward famously said of it, but don’t let that - or
Alan Partridge - put you off or you will be missing out on something very
The mediaeval city of Norwich, Norfolk’s county town, was bigger than London. It had grown prosperous from wool and trade with Europe through the ports of Kings Lynn and Great Yarmouth. Though Norwich remains a lively, flourishing city, Norfolk as a whole is now less populated than it was in the Middle Ages.
The tranquil rivers, lakes, marshes and nature reserves of the Norfolk Broads form part of a unique ecosystem, rich in wildlife. A ‘broad’ is a large stretch of open water formed by the widening of a river and most are man made. They date from about the 12th Century when a shortage of forest trees created a demand for peat for use as fuel. Over a period of about 200 years, the excavations of the peat diggers filled with water and developed into the Broads we see today. The Broads are a mecca for birdwatchers and for thousands of other holidaymakers who come for the chance to explore the intricate network of secluded yet navigable waterways by boat.
Walkers can explore the County on foot along the 93mile long Peddars Way footpath that leads through open country and farmland from Knettishall Heath on the Suffolk Border to the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
The vast empty beaches backing onto sand dunes and salt marsh stretch for 25 miles between Holme and Salthouse just north of Sheringham. It’s a paradise for birdwatchers and walkers but if the peace and quiet of this extraordinary landscape gets too much for you, there is plenty of traditional seaside entertainment at Great Yarmouth or on a smaller scale, Hunstanton or Cromer, and many other Norfolk seaside towns and villages, each with a charm of its own.
