The seals in Norfolk are truly one of the county’s most special sights to see. Without any doubt, it is an incredible WOW factor and one that you must see when in Norfolk. Whether you come to see them with their seal pups in the winter months or watch them basking in the sun in the summer months, this spectacle in Norfolk is an all year round activity to enjoy.
The Norfolk Broads are a series of rivers and broads (lakes), most of which are navigable. The square area of the Norfolk Broads totals 303km, most of this is in the County of Norfolk, and just over 200km of these waterways are navigable, covering seven rivers and 63 Broads. The depth of these waterways is usually less than 4m deep. Thirteen of the broads are completely navigable whilst three others have channels open to navigation running through them.
St Georges Distillery, home of The English Whisky Co. is the first distillery in England in over 100 years and part of Norfolk’s heritage. The distillery is open to the public 7 days a week and is well worth a visit. Do a tour to see the gleaming copper stills or just browse the shop where you can also find over 200 different whiskeys for sale and a wonderful selection of gift ideas. St Georges Distillery became operational in December 2006 and opened its doors to the public in 2007. It is a great attraction offering guided tours of the distillery. In addition to the distillery, do visit ‘The Kitchen’, a coffee house and restaurant based in the grounds of St Georges Distillery, where you can enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch or just relax with a coffee or cake. For those that want to skip the tour, why not go for a walk down to the river whilst the rest of your team look around the distillery.
