Norfolk is a great place to enjoy the long and sometimes hot days of the great British summer. The gentle undulating ground is very fertile and therefore rich in plant and wildlife. You will see many wild flowers, ancient woodland and some rare species of butterfly and birds. The wide open skies and miles and miles of sandy beach make a great day out and you can still find secluded places, even in July and August!

Beaches - The Norfolk Beaches are a great place at ANY time of year, but especially in summer. Its one of the few places in England that you can still find a quiet beach, even in August. Enjoy the wide open skies, the miles and miles of sand.

Did you know that Norfolk is one of the driest parts of the UK?
Average annual rainfall in Norfolk is roughly half that of Cornwall and substantially less than the Lake District

Inland - Norfolk has miles and miles of beautiful rural countryside. One good place is the ridge of heathland behind the coast between Salthouse and Sheringham. The Norfolk Broads is the best wetland landscape in the UK, with picturesque quiet woodland and miles of slow meandering rivers and lakes. Finally, Norfolk has plenty of country parks and long distance footpaths, offering plenty of opportunity to get out and enjoy the summer.
