The best place to see the seals in Norfolk are...
December 09, 2014

Welcome to the December 2014 issue of Explore Norfolk UK and a very Happy Christmas.

These winter months are some of the best times to be in Norfolk as there is so much to explore, the number of visitors are greatly reduced, and you pretty much have the place to yourself, well almost!

Just new onto the website this month is an article on the seals in Norfolk, where to see them and the best times of year to see them.

The Seals in Norfolk The seals are one of the main attractions to the coast at this time of year. The Grey seals come to give birth on the North Norfolk coast at Blakeney Point and also on the east coast at Horsey Gap. Both are very special places to visit. For watching the seals at Blakeney Point you’ll need to take a boat trip from Morston Quay, and for seeing them at Horsey, you can walk along the cordoned off path to the view areas and get a fantastic view from the top of the dunes over the huge expanse of beach, littered with seals and their pups. Both are an incredible experience. I’ve written in more detail about the seals in Norfolk which you can find here.

Dog Friendly Beaches If you want to come to Norfolk in the winter months to get away from it all, to relax and unwind, then refreshing, often windswept walks on the empty beach produces just that. Take yourself into another world, away from the daily grind and just marvel at the huge expanses of sand and sky, and just walk and walk and walk. Many of you come with your beloved pet and so I’ve spent time explaining which beaches are dog friendly, you’ll find it here. Chill out on Norfolk's dog friendly beaches.

A bracing coastal walk Or you could take a bracing coastal walk (depending on the weather of course) with the most stunning views of the diverse landscape. My favourite walk for this is the Cromer Lighthouse walk which looks over the beach from Cromer towards Overstrand.

So I hope you have a very Happy Christmas and look forward to giving you more exciting opportunities for ideas to explore in Norfolk in the New Year. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact me, or you can find out much more about what Norfolk has to offer at Explore Norfolk UK.

Best wishes
