North Norfolk Winter
Just because the sun and warm weather can disappear at the end of Summer it doesn’t mean you have to. When it’s time to add that extra layer, it’s time to explore, because the main tourist season may have passed, but the life still continues through Autumn and Winter.
There is nothing better than wrapping up and heading out for a brisk walk. Even in the most extreme of weather, North Norfolk is still as beautiful as ever. It’s also an ideal chance to take advantage of some great deals at local hotels and restaurants as they discount their rate to off-peak. You’ll also get the chance to experience some of our autumn and winter seasonal produce.
