Location: North Norfolk coast mid-way between Hunstanton & Cromer
A traditional and popular seaside town whose once busy working port is most used by recreation sailors and fishermen today. Steeped in history from its maritime links and good public transport links along the coast and inland to Fakenham and beyond the town maintains a thriving community with a wide range of amenities, shops and businesses for both residents and visitors. The Norfolk Coast Path passes through and there's a wide range of walking options whether historic town or country circular walks to linear walk and ride options utilising the regular Coasthopper service. The easy access path between the harbour and the beach is alongside the channel providing views down over the marshes to Blakeney in the east and across the reclaimed grazing marshes of Holkham to the west.
