Norfolk is a beautiful place to visit at any time of year, but there is something magical about this part of the country in the autumn. Everything takes on a very different feel – gone is the rush of the summer months, tranquillity descends as local life slows, the days grow shorter, and the air is crisp. Coats and wellies are a must! To help you plan your next Hemsby break, we’ve rounded up some of the best places to visit at this time of year. There’s no reason to stay home in autumn with so much to see and do.
See the Changing Woodland Colours
Norfolk has many ancient woods, parks, and green areas to discover. Each is illuminated with unique shades of changing leaves, conkers, acorns and chestnuts while the soft autumn light filters through the trees. Perfect to rug up and get out for a stroll. Why not park near a local pub for a leisurely lunch or dinner afterwards? There’s nothing better after a walk than to enjoy a hot meal next to the roaring fire, wine in hand.
See the Seals
Norfolk is known for its wildlife, but autumn is even more special as it’s the beginning of seal breeding season. While they don’t start pupping until winter, they do come onto the beaches to stake their territory claim this season. So see the beautiful balls of blubber all autumn, but be sure not to get too close!
Autumn lets visitors discover the serene beauty of the Norfolk coastline without the summer crowds. The empty beaches are perfect for long walks, breathing in the bracing sea air and even heading into the water for some cold water therapy. A bonus is there is also always a car space readily available.
See the Migrating Birds
Norfolk is known as one of the UK’s best birdwatching areas, and in autumn, the migrating birds flock to the county, including Pink Footed Geese, who arrive in the tens of thousands after breeding in Iceland. They are a sight to behold, as are many other bird species who favour the area at this time of year.
When you want to escape the outdoor chill, take a wander around Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Norwich Castle Museum, Norwich Cathedral, the Cromer Museum, and many others. Or perhaps a stately home is more for you. Now is the perfect time to explore without the crowds.
