Norfolk is a county in East Anglia approximately 94 miles from London. It borders Lincolnshire to the north-west, Cambridgeshire to the west and south-west, and Suffolk to the south. The North Sea borders it to the north and east, and Norwich is its main county town, nestled in the north-east of the county.
Largely rural, Norfolk is made up of phenomenal landscapes, including beaches like that of Holkham National Nature Reserve and Wells-Next-The-Sea. The Broads is a network of rivers and lakes in the east of the county, which is broadly known for its low-lying, flat land.
Norfolk is, therefore, a fantastic destination for family holidays, thanks to its plentiful beaches and varied attractions. The city of Norwich is a hub of activity, boasting the 11th Century Norwich Cathedral (a must-see for history fans), Norwich Ice Rink, and the medieval Norwich Castle, Museum and Art Gallery. There’s also the 50-acre Banham Zoo and Sea Life Aquarium in Great Yarmouth - but to catch sea animals in their natural territory, take your family seal-spotting from Blakeney Point.
Norfolk is well connected with transport links: Greater Anglia runs to service from London Liverpool Street to Norwich, and trains for various destinations in Norfolk also depart from King’s Cross.
