Exploration & Shopping in Norfolk

Not being on the way to anywhere in particular, many of Norfolk’s small towns have retained a character lost elsewhere.

Holt is a shopping centre where you will not find all the names above the shops the same as they are at home. Art, craft, clothing, fresh produce and antiques can all be found in small shops which jostle alongside cafes and tea rooms. holt



Sheringham, once predominantly a fishing town, has a lively theatre, a thriving market and plenty of small shops and restaurants. In addition to having a regular rail link to Norwich, it is also the base for The Poppy Line which offers nostalgic steam train journeys through the open countryside to Holt.


Cromer is home to the crab and a good place to buy and eat seafood. The pier is one of the few of the great Victorian constructions in England that is still open and running with a traditional ‘End of the Pier’. Small shops, tearooms, putting green and promenade will brings back happy seaside memories for many.

Norwich was once the country’s second city and remains home to one of the finest collection of medieval buildings in England. In contrast, it is also rated in the top ten shopping centres in the country – well worth a day’s visit from your hotel.
