Enjoy a day walking and birdwatching at the Norfolk Wildlife preserve at Cley or RSPB Titchwell, enjoy watching the migrating birds including the pink footed geese often seen at dusk.

Take a walk on the sandy beach at Holkham, the BBC Countryfile Beach of the Year 2018, how many different seashells and seabirds can you spot?

Wrap up warm and take a boat trip to see the Seal colony at Blakeney Point or go for a stroll along Horsey Beach and see the seals without the confines of tide times. The new pups started arriving in early November and should be venturing a bit further away from their parents by now!

For a more relaxed day of sightseeing  you could enjoy a heritage steam train ride on the Poppy Line between Sheringham and Holt and admire the beautiful countryside, you may spot rabbits, hares or deer if you look closely enough or try a day cruise on the Norfolk Broads and enjoy the chance to see Otters, Herons and many other natural delights in the UK’s only National Water Park.

If nature isn’t your thing you could of course enjoy a day shopping and sightseeing in the medieval city of Norwich and its surrounding picturesque villages such as Holt, Aylesham, Walsingham, Wells next the Sea and Burnham Market.
