Norfolk is the fifth largest county in England. The Norfolk coast runs for nearly 100 miles, from Hopton on Sea to the Wash.
Norfolk has 659 medieval churches, the highest concentration in the world! Norfolk has one hundred and twenty round towers churches, more than three times as many of other parts of the country. It is thought round towers were built for cultural reasons, at a time when Norfolk had strong trading links with the Baltic and North Sea communities.
North Norfolk is home to the Queen’s country retreat, Sandringham; the Royal Family’s only private home and estate in England.

Blakeney Point is home to the largest seal colony in England with the arrival of approximately two thousand five hundred pups in recent Winters. The colony is made up of Common and Grey seals. Common seals have their young between June and August, and the Greys between November and January.
The Norfolk Broads are a result of medieval peat diggings, which have created over one hundred and twenty five miles of navigable waterways. This is more than Venice or Amsterdam, and are home to more than a quarter of the rarest wildlife in the UK.
