Burnham market

Burnham Market to some is what put North West Norfolk on the map. A quaint market town now full of shops, cafes and delis and boasting some of the best pubs and eateries in the area, it is a must visit. Its beauty and offerings do make it incredibly busy in the height of summer so be prepared.


Hunstanton is an old Victorian holiday town with all the splendor and eccentricities of a place the world slightly forgot. With arcades, fairground rides and a wonderful beach with large cliffs and the world’s largest joke shop (apparently) it is a confusion of colour and entertainment – the polar opposite of Burnham Market.


The beautiful market town of Holt is a wonderful destination to head to if you would like to go further afield. Full of shops and cafes including Byfords, which is fantastic, it can keep you occupied for hours. While over that way visit the wild North Norfolk and places such as Cley, Blakeney, Kelling and Salthouse. Great places this way are the Dun Cow, The Wiveton Café, Morston Hall and so many more.
