The village is surrounded by well-ordered arable fields, woodland and heathland. The area is excellent for walking, enjoying the countryside and coast. There are opportunities to see wildlife, sea-fishing on Weybourne Beach and bird-watching are very popular.

Weybourne Mill: There is a fine example of a tower windmill that has been restored but not to its working condition. It was first built in 1850.

North Norfolk Railway

Another local attraction is the North Norfolk Railway which runs from Sheringham through Weybourne to Holt. Also known as the "Poppy Line", this marvellously-preserved steam railway cuts through the countryside to the east of Weybourne and passes through the delightfully-preserved country station which also houses a locomotive shed together with a carriage maintenance and restoration centre.

Muckleburgh Collection

A popular attraction is the Muckleburgh Collection: the largest privately-owned collection of tanks, armoured cars and other military vehicles.
