Places to visit in Norfolk

Visit Norfolk to enjoy some of the finest stately homes that England has to offer, all against a landscape of lakes and rivers. You’ll find space in Norfolk, and lots of it. Master a barge on the Norfolk Broads, a labyrinthine network of lakes and rivers, or walk through fenlands rife and beaches teeming with wildlife. Looking out over these expanses of English countryside are stately homes fit for queens. We’re talking both the Queen’s royal retreat, and those on the big screen whether it’s Shakespeare in Love or The Duchess. Fun-lovers should head to Great Yarmouth’s Golden Mile for traditional British seaside classics; pleasure piers, arcades, and putting greens aplenty.
