Norfolk is a region in the middle of eastern coast of England. It is a region that has over 90 miles of unbroken, clean coastline along with many forests, national parks and the English heathland. From the nature reserves to the quaint market towns, from the birdwatching activities to the seaside accommodation, Norfolk is a region that doesn’t run out of things to do.
There are two major hostels in Norfolk, located at opposite ends of the region. If you’re going in with a group, they both have enough capacity to house the lot of you comfortably. You can also stay in hotels, cottages, homestays and other places if you’d prefer those. The city of Norwich is one of the prime places to stay in and visit, mainly because of the rich heritage that the town enjoys along with the friendly townsfolk and the great food.
Norfolk isn’t just countryside. It is full of attractions as well. When you wake up in your hostel, you step out into a day filled with adventure. Enjoy some time with your family at the theme parks, zoos and gardens open to the public along with playgrounds and wildlife reserves that are dotted around the region. If it’s beaches you want instead, you don’t have to look any further than the 90 miles of coastline that is clean and pet-friendly. You can rent a boat and go boating like they did way back in the day.
This region has a very colorful history and a heritage worth talking about. One of the great British naval heroes, Horatio Nelson, lived in Norfolk, along with Abraham Lincoln’s family. Churches and cathedrals abound in the region, dating back to different eras of history. They are all in top condition and are a great place to clear one’s head after a long day out.
In terms of activities, there are very many indeed. You can go cycling along the Broads to explore the rolling heathland and rivers that spread across the countryside. You can also golf at one of the many clubs, before heading back to the coast to go watch the baby seals at play. After all this is done, you can head back to your hostel to rest and recover for another day of fun.
