An Easter in Norfolk

With much of the North Norfolk being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the spring time is without a doubt a wonderful time to visit. With crocuses afoot, geese flying high and the days getting longer, all these moments enhance any Easter time traditions. It is a perfect time for families to spend time together, or a simple beach-side walk with your four-legged friend.

We have put together a list of favorite Easter Event within the area, a little inspiration for things to do over the Easter holidays. Please check out our special offers for a late availability over the Easter break!
