Our View

The splendid Norman craftsmanship, and the sheer scale and sense of tranquillity of Norwich Cathedral, has attracted visitors and pilgrims here for nearly a millennium. It has the second highest spire and the largest monastic cloister in England. Inside, you’ll see the 1,000 or so carved medieval roof bosses and the original wall-paintings in the Jesus Chapel and the presbytery. The soft cream Caen stone building remains a place for quiet reflection as well as for participation in daily services and the rich pageantry of the church’s festivals. An education and visitor centre is now open. Photo credits: Maze, two girls and cafe - Paul Hurst.

About The area

Discover Norfolk

The North Norfolk Coast is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and probably the finest of its kind in Europe. Here you’ll find a string of quaint villages and small towns – Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Cley next the Sea are 21st-century favourites, while Sheringham and Cromer are classic examples of a good old-fashioned seaside resort where grand Victorian hotels look out to sea. Further round the coast you'll find Great Yarmouth, one of the most popular resorts in the UK and packed full of amusements, shops and seashore entertainment. And let's not forget Norwich, the region's only city.

Norfolk prides itself on its wealth of historic houses, the most famous being Sandringham, where Her Majesty the Queen and her family spend Christmas. Many of Norfolk’s towns have a particular charm and a strong sense of community. The quiet market towns of Fakenham and Swaffham are prime examples, as well as Thetford, with its popular museum focusing on the TV comedy series Dad’s Army which was filmed in the area.
