There are a few things in life worth getting up early for, and the seal pups at Blakeney Point are one of them. Over the months of November, December and January, hundreds of seal pups are born in the sand dunes of Blakeney National Nature Reserve, making this the largest seal colony in England. (And a beachful of blubber – but a cute one at that.)
With 93 miles of unspoilt beaches, vast expanses of open countryside and The Broads, Norfolk has a veritable quarry of stunning natural features. The Norfolk Coast is a designated AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) – and if you visit any of the pretty seaside towns, you’ll certainly see why this is the case! If that’s not enough to convince you that Norfolk’s worth a visit, consider this: it’s the combined sunniest and driest county in England. That’s saying something, right?
