The Norfolk coastline is renowned for its clean beaches, many of which have consistently been awarded the blue flag standard. Stretching from The Wash, right round to Lowestoft, there is something for everyone, from the bright lights and pleasure beach at Great Yarmouth, through to more secluded and peaceful areas such as Old Hunstanton and Brancaster.

Local Markets are also very popular, and Swaffham Market is held every Saturday, with nearby Kings Lynn holding theirs every Tuesday and Saturday.

If shopping is your thing then Kings Lynn is only a short drive from Swaffham, or Norwich can be reached in about an hour, where you will find both the Castle Mall and Chaplefield shopping centres, and their daily market, all of which is overlooked by the Medieval Castle.

Norfolk is also famous for its Broads, situated in the eastern area surrounding Norwich. Why not take a guided tour along the river, or the more adventurous may even hire their own! Alternatively don your walking boots and take in the sights and sounds of Norfolk by foot.
