Accommodation and travel ideas in Norfolk
Norfolk is a low-lying county in East Anglia, on the North Sea coast, including The Wash. A largely rural county, the county capital is Norwich with other notable towns including Great Yarmouth and King's Lynn. A key destination, The Broads, lie mostly within the county. A recent bid to have them declared a National Park failed, because it would have meant conservation being more important than navigation. Historical sites, such as the centre of Norwich, also contribute to tourism.
Historic places to visit in Norfolk
Somerset has a rich heritage and there are attractions for every kind of visitor. Ideas include Baconsthorpe castle and Binham Priory, both free attractions maintained by English Heritage. The centre of Norwich is very historic, with its Cathedral, and Holkham Hall is an impressive Palladian mansion within reach of a beautiful beach. Finally, no visit to Norfolk should be without a visit to the Norfolk Broads.
