What makes Norfolk such a popular holiday destination? With miles of giant beaches, pretty villages, traditional market towns and kitsch seaside resorts, there's plenty for all comers to enjoy.
East Anglia holiday parks
There are two Parkdean Resorts parks on East Anglia's north coast. Heacham Beach is near beautiful King's Lynn, and set right on the sandy seashore. Manor Park is in the popular seaside resort of Hunstanton, just a few minutes walk from the coast.
Parks close to Great Yarmouth
Great Yarmouth is one of the most famous seaside names in the UK, and Parkdean Resorts has two parks close to the town. California Cliffs is a short stroll from sandy Scratby Beach, while Breydon Water is actually two holiday parks set just 10 minutes apart - customers can use the facilities at both.
This famous seaside resort has everything you'd expect from such a popular destination, including large sandy beaches, two piers and a Pleasure Beach packed with rides. Two attractions that offer something a little different are the Horatio Nelson museum, dedicated to the hometown hero, and the Time & Tide museum, which digs deep into Great Yarmouth's maritime past.
Sunny Hunny really does earn its nickname; the town is west facing despite being on the east coast. Hunstanton has several excellent beaches that are flanked by striking red and white striped chalk cliffs. The coast is a favourite for fossil hunters - keep your eyes peeled for ancient finds.
Kings Lynn is a historic town that was once among England's most important ports. Remnants of its grand past include old merchants' houses, cobbled lanes and an impressive waterfront overlooked by the elegant Custom House.
Broads by boat
The Norfolk Broads is a national park of lakes and rivers, so the best way to see the sights is by boat - you can choose everything from a canoe to a motor cruiser. There are plenty of operators offering day trips to explore this wonderful watery landscape.
Dive deep into the mysteries of the sea at one of two giant aquariums in Great Yarmouth ...Sea Life Centre... and Hunstanton ...Sea Life Sanctuary.... Both are home to thousands of sea creatures, offering amazing close up views of the deep blue. Other active highlights include the 10¼ inch narrow gauge steam scenic railway that runs between Wells-next-the-sea and Walsingham, Dinosaur Adventure and Go Ape in Thetford Forest.
