Since moving to Norfolk County this June, it has been my goal to explore our new hometown as much as possible. Many people don’t realise that Norwich is one of the four UNESCO Cities of Literature in the UK – this alongside it’s thriving independent scene and history made me realise why so many people call the beautiful city of Norwich ‘home‘. While we may still have loads to see and do, these are a few of my favourite things to do in Norfolk County as detailed below:
RIVERSIDE NORWICH// One of the prettiest walks in Norwich is along the river – peace and tranquillity hidden in the capital of Norfolk! Full of photo opportunities and that infamous street of coloured houses from Instagram.
NORWICH MARKET// No trip to the city is complete without wandering through the market. A place of tantalising smells and delicious food,it is located in the centre of Norwich over looked by city hall on one side and the castle on the other.
NORFOLK BROADS// Perhaps the best experience I’ve had since becoming a Norfolk resident was our day boating along the Norfolk Broads. We picked up a rental boat in Brundall and cruised right into the centre of Norwich. Turns out I’m a lot better at driving a boat than a car!
BLAKENEY POINT// No matter the time of year, there is always something to do at Blakeney Point and Horsey Gap. In the summer, a lengthy coastline is perfect for lounging in the sand, and in the winter, a place to view the seals and seal pups.
NORWICH CATHEDRAL// One of the city’s main attractions; the 11th century cathedral, is free to enter and you can leave a donation if you wish. My favourite part of the cathedral is the outside hallways as they remind me so much of Harry Potter!
I hope that if you live here in Norfolk, you have found some new things to do, and if you don’t, that this post might have inspired you to take a trip to Norfolk.
