Discover Norfolk’s rich heritage
While you may spend your short break surrounded by the natural world, inspired to photograph, paint, or write about its beauty, it is well worth your time to discover a little more about the landscape you’ve come to admire.
If you’d like to learn more about Norfolk’s colourful and interesting past, it’s well worth exploring the many museums that document the county’s history. Visit Norfolk recently released its own handy guide to some of the best and we strongly recommend checking it out. The imposing Castle Museum in the city of Norwich is over 900 years old, so you can be assured that it’s seen more than its fair share of history. Cromer Museum, meanwhile, allows you to explore what life must have been like when the town was a sleepy fishing village – quite a change of pace! If you’re a fan of ancient history, Lynn Museum is a wonderful treat, with a replica of Seahenge at its heart. This list is by no means exhaustive, and you’re sure to enjoy conducting your own research into the county’s past – it is vast and varied, after all.
Historic accommodation in Norfolk
While there are newer builds for you to relax and unwind in, some of Norfolk’s best self-catering accommodation is a little older, drawing inspiration from the thousands of years of history that envelops the region. Perhaps you’ll find comfort in a simple, yet cosy, fisherman’s cottage, prefer the luxury of a roaring fire in a cottage, or make a little history of your own in an old mill – the choice is yours.
