Norfolk base

Jump to last reply

We are planning a self-driving tour of the UK - a slightly odd one in that it misses some obvious and lovely places! That's because we've driven the UK before, so this time we're stringing together places we've missed on previous trips but which we've been told are worthwhile or have some attraction that interests us.

One area we fancy spending a few days in is Norfolk, and we're wondering where good bases might be to explore this area. Big cities, like Norwich itself, don't usually appeal to us - but is it at least worth a visit? For similar reasons (crowds, traffic), Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth may be best avoided as well. One attribute of a "good base" is that it be centrally located, which in Norfolk's case suggests an inland town (Fakenham or Swaffham?). On the other hand, somewhere coastal (Hunstanton, Burnham Market, Sheringham, Cromer?) might be prettier and more geared to tourism - if perhaps also more expensive!

Perhaps someone who knows the region can give us some tips? We enjoy good scenery, history, a bit of walking, and a nice pub to relax in in the evenings.
