Norfolk travel guide

4.3
Beaches · Gardens · Theme Parks
Norfolk is a low-lying and predominantly rural county named after the ancient "North Folk" tribes who used to live here. The locals are fond of saying that they "have one foot on the land, and one in the sea." Nowhere is that more true than in the famous Broads region, consisting of a vast network of inland waterways, lakes, and marshes. Though Norfolk’s principal appeal for many tourists may very well be that it’s not included on the average itinerary, this rural getaway does boast Norwich, a thriving regional capital noted as one of the country’s top ten shopping destinations. Never very far from the water, visitors sightseeing in this region can enjoy sandy beaches, fishing villages, and coastal nature reserves.
