There is absolutely loads of events going on around the county. Our events “What’s On” section provides details of events by category, such as Theatre shows, events specifically for family and kids, seasonal special events etc.. With close to 100 miles of coastline running from The Wash along the North Norfolk coast then to the east and past the thriving seaside town of Great Yarmouth, it’s understandable why the county is a popular destination with holiday-makers. But fun-in-the-sun and picturesque beaches are not the only reasons to visit. Norfolk is quite simply a beautiful county, the perfect place to see nature. There are wildlife reserves across the county, from the coastal sanctuaries and the Norfolk Broads, Wensum Valley, Breckland, The Fens, Thetford forest, the tranquility of South Norfolk and all the way up to The Wash. Even with the county of Norfolk bursting with stuff to see and do, we know there’s great places just over the border too so we’ve included locations just over the border in Suffolk. You’re never far from nature, as folk from Norwich will tell you. Being residents of this fine city, we know that within a few minutes’ drive from the city you can be in the countryside. Of course, if you’re visiting Norwich then you’re in the right place for shopping, entertainment and culture. Steeped in history Norwich is a tourist destination in it’s own right. And many of the large and smaller towns in Norfolk have plenty of attractions nearby. Places like Great Yarmouth, Kings Lynn, Thetford, Dereham, Wymondham, North Walsham, Attleborough, Downham Market, Diss, Fakenham, Cromer, Sheringham, Swaffham, Aylsham, Harleston and Holt. So, with award-winning theme parks, indoor and outdoor adventure play, loads of history to see, top class entertainment and animal attractions Norfolk has something for all the family.
