Among the many things that make the North Norfolk Coast unique are its atmosphere and its fantastic location. Experienced travellers will tell you that it is an ideal spot for a fun-filled day out with the family, an 'escape' weekend for two or the annual holiday they plan for so carefully. Here are some of the highlights people enjoy when they go to the coast for a bit of rest and relaxation:
Today's tourists still marvel at the landmarks in Cromer that Victorian visitors came to see years ago, including its magnificent medieval church. In addition, crab fishing is the village's major industry, and it has become a centre for various sport and leisure activities that you will enjoy.
To learn more about the area's history, archaeology and geology, you can visit the Cromer Museum, which is near the church, and the Lifeboat Museum, located at the bottom of the Gangway. Also, the well-known Seaside Special takes place every summer on Cromer Pier in the Pavilion Theatre.
In Sheringham, you will find that its seaside heritage is very evident, and its well-marked terrain makes it an ideal spot for horseback riding, hiking and cycling. You will also enjoy visiting the Splash leisure complex, Beeston Common and the Little Theatre.
When you go to Wells-next-the -Sea, a harbour town, its narrow street will lead you to the quay. Tourists flock here during the summer because they don't want to miss the entertainment at the Granary Theatre, the popular Wells Regatta and similar events. In addition, <em>Holkham Hall</em>, located along the North Sea Coast, offers a beach front that some regard as the District's best and a 3,000-acre deer park that you can explore.
To some extent, the charming and busy seaside village of Mundesley is a well-kept secret, and it will interest you and your family if you are looking for a more traditional holiday. Visitors of every age enjoy a rare combination sandy shore and shallow pools, and fishing enthusiasts can take part in the sport here throughout the year. If you play golf, the nine-hole course provides remarkable views of the coast.
Although Waxham and Sea Palling are small coastal villages, tourists are impressed by their unspoilt natural beauty, award-winning beaches, and sandy bays that are the result of a successful reclamation scheme. Those who visit Palling enjoy a variety of sports that includes swimming and jet skiing. Waxham's beach is more primitive, and at a certain time of year, seals can be seen frolicking on the beach with their pups.
