Think of Norfolk and the theme of water – in particular the Norfolk Broads, a network of mostly navigable rivers and man-made waterways – usually springs to mind. The North Norfolk Coast, probably the finest of its kind in Europe, is another major visitor attraction in this corner of the country particularly for family friendly and dog friendly holidays.

The coastline here represents a world of lonely beaches, vast salt marshes and extensive sand dunes stretching to the horizon. In places, there is a strange, unsettling atmosphere but during the summer months the coastal resorts of Wells-Next-the-Sea, Brancaster, Cromer and Hunstanton bustle with crowds on bucket and spade style family holidays.

Norfolk prides itself on its wealth of historic houses, the most famous being Sandringham, where Her Majesty the Queen and other members of the Royal Family spend Christmas. ‘Dear old Sandringham, the place I love better than anywhere in the world,’ wrote George V. Apart from Sandringham, other great houses in the region include Holkham Hall, and the National Trust properties of Blicking Hall and Fellbrigg Hall.

Many of Norfolk’s towns have a particular and individual charm. The quiet market towns of Fakenham and Swaffham are prime examples, and there is also Thetford, with its popular museum focusing on the iconic BBC television comedy series Dad’s Army. Much of the filming took place in the town and nearby Thetford Forest. The city of Norwich oozes history and Cromer on the coast still recalls the heyday of Victorian seaside resorts.
