Day 1 - Friday
Spend the morning in Sheringham, a bustling seaside town just a couple of miles from West Runton Club Site and an hour's drive from Sandringham. Visit the charming Peter Coke Shell Gallery with more than 100 shell-art creations, before setting off on the Sheringham town trail. This 1.8-mile murder mystery-themed walk is suitable for families and takes in local highlights including the steam railway, the seafront promenade and the High Street - the perfect pit-stop for ice cream.
Take the scenic coastal road to Hunstanton, an hour's drive west of Sheringham, and join a wildlife-watching boat tour onboard Wizzy The Wash Monster, one of Hunstanton's famous amphibious vessels. Tours depart daily and offer a fascinating one-hour wildlife tour around The Wash, home to thousands of seals. Tours run at different times and are weather-dependent, so be sure to call ahead and book in advance.
Day 2 - Saturday
No holiday to the seaside is complete without visiting a pier! Tick off a real British classic at Cromer, a bustling coastal town with lovely sandy beaches and a traditional Victorian pier. It's home to a bar, restaurant, theatre and a gift shop - perfect for picking up souvenirs for friends and family back home.
Whisk the kids off to Dinosaur Adventure at Weston Park, around 40 minutes' drive from Cromer, for an afternoon of indoor and outdoor adventures. Join the park's new Dino Explorer discovery trail, which lets younger visitors step into the shoes of prehistoric explorers and excavate fossils, tracks, and prehistoric finds.
Day 3 - Sunday
Make your way to Weybourne on Sunday for the annual North Norfolk Country Fair. This cheerful family event hosts a vibrant array of activity throughout the day, including lurcher racing, falconry, ferret racing, hunt hounds, and live music. Watch the gun dog scurry, admire classic cars, go wild on rides and attractions and pick up souvenirs from the arts and craft stalls. Under 15's go free.
Day 4 - Bank Holiday Monday
On Bank Holiday Monday, head to the fabulous Holkam Hall near Wells-next-the-Sea for a family-themed cycling weekend and fun fair. The Hall itself is an exquisite 18th century Palladian house set within 25,000 acres, and Sunday is a great time to visit. The Pedal Norfolk Cycling Festival brings the park to life with all sorts of activities including a children's cycling academy, fun-fair, live entertainment, thrilling shows, challenging sportives and a fantastic array of food and drink.
