Places of interest in Norfolk



Norfolk is now building more and more windfarms placing most of this in the North Sea just off the Great Yarmouth coast line.   These will generate electricity for that part of North Norfolk.

Sandringham Royal Estate

The Queen's Christmas retreat, Sandringham is situated between the historic town of King's Lynn and the seaside town of Hunstanton.   A magnificent Royal House along with some fabulous walks around the Queens grounds, taking in nature trails depending on your fitness level, you can walk for five miles or three, depending on how fit you're feeling!

Great Yarmouth Circus, building one of only a few in the world!

The hippodrome was built very nearly 100 years ago in 1903, by George Gilbert, who five years previously had erected a circus in a wooden temporary building on the same site. Gilbert, Norwich born, as a famous equestrian along with his wife Jennie O'Brien, and when he opened the Yarmouth hippodrome, it was described as "undoubtedly the finest palace of entertainment in Great Britain", although different in scale and atmosphere to the grandiose circus halls of the London Hippodrome, Liverpool Olympia, or Hengler's Circus in Argyll Street, London, which exists today as the london palladium , the Yarmouth hippodrome, however, hased and still today possesses that unique charm and intimacy which drew audiences ninety-nine years ago .

North Norfolk Coast covering Caister to Cromer through to Aylsham and North Walhsam.

The seaside resort of Cromer situated on the North Norfolk Coast, famous for its "Cromer Crab".   We carry out survey's in all of the above mentioned towns.

Windmill Sails Struck by Lightening;     

Denver Windmill was built in 1835 and continued to grind corn using wind-power for over one hundred years. The windmill stopped work in 1941 when the sails were struck by lightning.

Now it has been lovingly restored to full working order with new facilities for visitors to enjoy. Once again flour is being milled using the power of the wind. We haven't surveyed this windmill but have done others.    This one is not for sale though!

City of Norwich; Norwich, the capital of Norfolk, was once second only to London in importance, growing out of several small Saxon settlements at the lowest fording point along the River Wensum.

Before the Norman Conquest of 1066, Norwich was one of the largest towns in England. The conquerors built a castle and a cathedral, and established a new market place, which is still in use today.

In 1194 Norwich was granted the status of a city, while in 1404 it was given the privilege of appointing a mayor, two sheriffs and aldermen to run its affairs. Norwich grew in size and wealth during the Middle Ages. It was the principal market for one of the most densely populated parts of England and by the late fourteenth century was the chief centre of worsted manufacture. It remained one of the most important textile manufacturing centres until the nineteenth century.

To find out more about this historic city visit

Norfolk Broads
The Broads (a singular noun - it denotes an area) has 200km of unhurried and lock-free navigation. There are five rivers and 40 broads though not all of the broads are navigable and some are landlocked. Collectively, they have a water area of about 3,640 hectares (9,000 acres), the rivers accounting for nearly 80% of the total.

Sharing that space are about 13,000 registered craft of which perhaps 20% are hire craft, the rest privately owned. That total is slightly below the peak of the early 1990s but some 200,000 people spend a week or more on cruiser holidays each year while the Broads receives over a million visitors annually who collectively pass 5.4 million days there.

And whilst your visiting the area why not tune in on your radio to KLFM96.7 this is the local radio station for West Norfolk which covers all news in the area and will give you up-dated travel bulletins for the good olde Coastal Roads..visit their website at
