Situated on the mid-eastern coast of England, the county of Norfolk is the perfect place for a short break or weekend getaway. With a beautiful blend of open beaches, idyllic countryside and charming city life, there’s certainly something for everyone. Norfolk is all about carrying your bucket and space to the end of the pier and eating tasty fish and chips along the shore.
It’s also great for enjoying huge pots of freshly caught mussels and then settling down in a cosy gastropub for mug of hot chocolate! There’s endless amounts of fun to be had and history to be delved in to.
If you’re travelling with the family, Norfolk caters for all ages. There’s woodland adventures, boating, fishing and even kite surfing on the tumbling waves! Norfolk also plays host to a number of South American wildlife species at the county’s most unique and fun days out, The Amazona Zoo! The Zoo is home to over 200 tropical animals including Monkeys, Snakes, Jaguars, Flamingo’s and Tapirs.
If you’re visiting Norfolk, chances are you’ve been told see The Norfolk Broads along the way. As Britain’s largest protected wetland and third largest inland waterway, this national park holds some of the rarest plants and animals in the UK.
However, if the animals aren’t quite your thing, why not settle in to our favourite luxury retreat, Barnham Broom (http://www.barnham-broom.co.uk/). After being recently refurbished, this hotel offers comfortable, stylish and luxurious accommodation for every guest.
A real treat for any couple, family or business traveler. If you’re a keen golfer, you’ll be happy to hear that this hotel offers two of Norfolk’s finest courses! Not to mention the relaxing Spa, Gym, Heated Indoor Pool and fabulous dining areas in the Brasserie or Sports Bar. When you’ve awoken from a blissful sleep, why not take a stroll in to the thriving modern city that is Norwich?
