Norfolk

Introduction

England - Norfolk

Norfolk is an area of the fens and the lovely eastern coast. Small villages and old-school seaside resorts can be found throughout.

Norwich

The main city of Norfolk Norwich is a centre not only of shopping but also much of the history of the region. The castle (now a museum) looks out over the centre of the city and it's well-known market.

Royal Arcade

Visit the Royal Arcade for the Coleman's Mustard shop and museum. Well worth a visit even if just to view the small historical niches around the small shop (visit their web site at http://www.colmansmustardshop.com/).

The Forum

Home of the BBC in Norfolk but also the central library, the Forum also has a Norfolk Tourism centre.

Norwich Cathedral

The cathedral is quite spectacular and well worth seeing (visit their web site at http://www.cathedral.org.uk/). The recently refurbished Refectory restaurant (just off of the cloisters) is a very good café with reasonably priced food and drink available. Entrance to the cathedral is free as are the very good tours but visitors are requested to leave a donation.

The Sandringham Estate

The Sandringham Estate is the Norfolk home of the royal family set in beautiful grounds. A bit expensive to get in but really well worth it. Located just down the road from the small town of Kings Lynn the estate is easily accessible via a small A-road or a national cycle network path.

The Estate

Also of note is the frequent markets and other events in the grounds surrounding the estate.

The Gardens

Strolling through the gardens on a fine English summer day is very relaxing.
