Wells-next-the-Sea offers sweeping sandy beaches fringed with colourful beach huts and shady pine woods. The harbour has a small working fishing fleet, families can enjoy boat trips and crabbing (gillying) from the quayside.
This area of Norfolk is wonderful for birdwatching, take a dawn or sunset stroll along the coastal footpath with views over the salt marshes.
There is an excellent visitor information centre at the Wells Maltings with details of places of interests and family activities in the surrounding area, events at Holkham Hall and Pensthorpe Natural Park. Cycle hire, including electric cycles, is available.
Wells has a varied selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants, with lots of picnic goodies at the bakers and deli’s. Temptations include freshly caught seafood, fish and chips, locally made ice-cream and Whin Hill Cider from the traditional ciderworks.
Walk from Wells along the beach or through the Pine Woods to Holkham Bay, there are refreshments and facilities at Wells and Holkham beach car parks, and at Holkham Hall. This is a lovely walk, if you want to shorten it catch the Coast Hopper bus for your return trip.
