Heading on vacation to Norfolk is a wonderful way to spend the summer, but taking a trip there in the winter months is just as rewarding. The winter season in this part of the world is between the months of November to the beginning of March. Going to the English county of Norfolk during these months is a great idea, as it is outside of peak season. This means that there will be fewer crowds and holidays will be cheaper in terms of hotel stays. The beauty of staying there in winter is that attractions are still open to the public just like in the summer.
One of the most important parts of Norfolk to visit is the beaches that are just as pretty in winter as they are in summer. The colder months are actually the best time for visitors to come across birds and seals, as they are more likely to venture out with fewer crowds of people there to watch them. Great wildlife sites include RSPB Snettisham and Holkham National Nature Reserve that provide a range of birds and animals such as deer. There is plenty of first-class North Norfolk accommodation available to tourists visiting the area.
The Harper Hotel Norfolk is an impressive boutique residence that provides a brilliant spa with a steam room, Jacuzzi, sauna and pool. Travellers will feel right at home as soon as they arrive at this beautiful hotel, which used to be home to Langham Glass before it was converted. The spacious rooms have lovely beds, oak floors and monsoon showers that include special bath products. This luxury residence has two outstanding restaurants on offer that are both ideal for business or pleasure. Stanley’s is perfect for a meal with family and friends, while The Stove provides delicious, fresh fine dining dishes for travellers to enjoy.
Norfolk has a range of amazing entertainment venues where live music is played, giving tourists a chance to have a fun evening. There is also the wonderful Princess Theatre in Hunstanton that offers the opportunity to see theatre, films, comedy and family shows. One of the most unique attractions is the North Norfolk Railway that allows visitors to go on a classic steam train ride. This is a superb way for tourists to travel and take in the stunning countryside scenery. Winter fishing is also a fantastic pastime and it is recommended that travellers get a guide for a day at least to really help them navigate the waters in the area.
Visitors in the region will adore going winter pike fishing on the Norfolk Broads, as well as coarse fishing where they can catch rudd, tench and carp. Of course it is just as much fun to venture to the small towns and villages in the winter months as it is the summer. A superb way to discover the stunning area of Norfolk is for travellers to catch the Coasthopper bus, which makes stops at many charming villages along the seaside. Tourists will adore taking trips to the small villages in Norfolk, but what they should do is head to the city of Norwich. This destination is the capital city of East Anglia and is known for being a brilliant music hub.
