We asked you to suggest your favourite spots in Norfolk and Suffolk and the response was fantastic. Thank you to everyone who left a comment, there were some truly fantastic suggestions to choose from. Here are just a few of our favourites.

Open spaces

Both Norfolk and Suffolk are blessed with a wealth of stunning open spaces. Whether you’re hitting the beach on a warm summer’s day or going for a wet and windy walk in the middle of winter, there’s a fantastic variety of spaces to choose from. Some of the most popular places suggested by you were the pretty Eaton Park in Norwich, the expansive Sheringham Park in Norfolk and Thetford Forest in Breckland. Perfect for dog walks and days out with family and friends, these beautiful open spaces are well worth exploring next time you’re out and about.

Restaurants, cafes and pubs

If you need to refuel after all that walking and fresh air, we’ve got some great suggestions. For a warm welcome and a great pint try the family run Orchard Gardens in North Walsham, or if you’ve been exploring Sheringham Park, visit the nearby Whelk Coppers Tea Rooms and reward yourself with a nice cup of tea and a delicious slice of cake. Alternatively, head to one of the regions’ attractive market towns and try out some of the independent local pubs, cafes and restaurants.

Family days out

If you’re looking for a memorable family day out in Norfolk and Suffolk, you’re really spoiled for choice. If the weather’s not playing ball, or you just want to explore one of the region’s unique attractions, visit Twinkle’s Town, a miniature town that’s been designed specially for children to discover. If you want to get out and get active, a walk down How Hill will help to get the blood pumping or head to Horsey Beach to see the local seals in their natural habitat. For a must do East Anglia experience, enjoy cliff top views on the picturesque walk from Overstrand to Cromer before watching the sunset from the iconic Cromer pier.


Thanks to the great choice of independent shops in the region, Norfolk and Suffolk make fantastic destinations for a bit of retail therapy. The market towns of Beccles and Holt are home to an eclectic variety of local shops and independent retailers as well as an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants. If you’re in Beccles take the time to visit the beautiful church tower which is thought to date right back to 1540.
