Wroxham is a village situated in the Broads National Park. It’s often dubbed ‘the Capital of the Broads’ – and with good reason. With waterside pubs, shops, restaurants, and tea rooms, Wroxham is definitely worth a visit. Why not hire a day boat from Richardson’s Day Boats in Wroxham? Cruise down the river and take in the unique landscape, waterside residencies, and Broadland villages.
You’ll find Cromer Pier in, you guessed it, Cromer. The 151-metre-long pier is an excellent example of traditional Victorian architecture. On the Pier you’ll find a fully-functioning theatre, which is open all-year round. The Pier is popular among locals and holidaymakers for crabbing – it’s free to crab off the pier. Cromer Pier is also popular with filmmakers and has featured in various Agatha Christie productions, the reality show Location, Location, Location, and the film In Love with Alma Cogan.
Elm Hill is one of the most well-known streets in Norwich. Famous for its Medieval origins, the cobbled street, adorned with a variety of speciality shops, is incredibly photogenic. The Tudor buildings you see today were built after a major fire destroyed 700 houses across the city.
Horsey Beach is a wonderful place to visit – not least because of the adorable seals that live there. Each year, thousands of pups are born on these beaches, making for a truly unique sight. To ensure their safety and yours, guidelines for visitors are in place.
