Norfolk

Norfolk features over 200km of inland waterways and a coast made up of shingly, pebble beaches fringed by traditional seaside towns such as Great Yarmouth - much of this region is AONB-designated.

The countryside, which is said to be the windiest in England, consists of remote heath-lands, marshes and dunes. Although primarily known for water-based activities, Norfolk's bridleways and walkways prove popular with ramblers, horse-riding enthusiasts and short break holidaymakers. Waymarked trails such as The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path are among the most noteworthy.

The Broads are used extensively for boating holidays and are perhaps the county's most popular attraction. They were formed by Medieval peat diggings and are a large network of navigable waterways that link Broads villages such as Brancaster and Wroxham together. Along the banks lie a collection of nature reserves and bird sanctuaries, as well as a diverse collection of country pubs.

Notable villages include Horning, which is famed for its Venetian canals, and Rollesby with its Norman church. The county town, Norwich is also worth visiting and has an impressive castle, cathedral and a number of medieval churches - it is also known for its bustling nightlife.
