Fall in love with Norfolk's picturesque villages, historic market towns and miles of unspoiled coastline. There is plenty for children to enjoy including adventure parks, zoos and a choice of sandy beaches.
Four Norfolk parks
All four Haven parks are close to Great Yarmouth. Caister has miles of golden beach on its doorstep, and a superb indoor pool, climbing wall and zip wire. Seashore has direct access to the coast, and on park there is a heated indoor pool and outdoor SplashZone. Wild Duck is set within pretty woodland. Hopton has a nine-hole golf course and outdoor and indoor swimming pools.
Great Yarmouth has all the razzmatazz of a traditional kiss-me-quick seaside town. There are huge sandy beaches and two piers, Britannia Pier and Wellington Pier, which host much-loved family shows. The Golden Mile has illuminations and theme parks, entertainment and evenings out. The highlight is the Pleasure Beach where thrill-seekers will find white-knuckle rides.
Caister is another sandy beach destination. For the area's best views climb to the top of the 90ft tower at Caister Castle. The price of entry includes a tour of the motor museum, which has a massive private collection of classic cars ...and the very first Ford Fiesta.... Caister is also home to the partially excavated remains of a 'Saxon Shore' fort from around 200 AD.
Hunstanton is a small seaside town that is west-facing ...despite being on the east coast.... "Sunny Hunny" has great beaches, funfairs and striking red and white striped cliffs. The town's main beach consistently wins Blue Flag status for its cleanliness.
For children there is an endless stream of activities: the 10¼ inch narrow gauge steam scenic railway that runs between Wells-next-the-sea and Walsingham is the longest in the world; other highlights include Dinosaur Adventure, Go Ape in Thetford Forest and Sea Life.
