6 ways to see Norfolk on a budget


While there are plenty of places to visit and attractions to see in Norfolk, sometimes it is the little things that can really make a holiday; those moments that cost nothing at all. Of course, such moments are also fantastic for those on a budget, and prove that you do not need to spend a lot to have a great time.

With that in mind, here are our top six things to do for nothing in Norfolk…

1. It would not be a holiday in Norfolk if you did not head to the coast and take a paddle in the sea; be sure to roll up your trouser legs and go as far in as you dare – there really is nothing quite like it.

2. Visit the Redwings Horse Sanctuary and Equine Veterinary Centre in Aylsham and meet its family of rescued horses, ponies and donkeys. With a gift shop, refreshments and picnic area, it provides a great day out, and there is no entrance fee, although donations are appreciated.

3. Do not go home before you have had a chance to meander around the Norfolk Broads. This network of lakes and rivers is famously beautiful whatever the time of year, and nothing will prepare you for life back in the fast lane quite like a soulful wander around this magical waterland.

4. Take inspiration from Nelson’s county, whether you are taking photographs, penning a poem or drawing a picture; if you can capture the moment you will be able to remember it long after your holiday in Norfolk is over. So, before you arrive, resolve to create a piece of art, a collection of poetry or prose, or a whole photo album by the time you get home, and enjoy adding to it each day.

5. What could be simpler than waking up in the morning, throwing open the patio doors and windows on your accommodation and simply enjoying the country air? So many of our properties offer scenic village or river views that you will not need to go very far at all to enjoy the many idyllic vistas Norfolk has to offer.

6. There are a number of museums and galleries across Norfolk with free admission – just do a little research before your trip. While the great outdoors is intoxicating, the county’s rich and varied past too interesting to miss, so dive in!
