Walking Breaks in North Norfolk, Norfolk and Norwich Festival

North Norfolk is a wonderful place for a walking short break or holiday. With the wonderful coastline and close proximity to the Norfolk Broads you have access to fabulous countryside and coastal walk – which is well populated by bird and animal life – and of course it is ridiculously flat making it less strenuous!

During the Norfolk and Norwich Festival there is even more to see on your walk with a sculpture trail along a 3 mile stretch of the North Norfolk coastline. Explore the trail until the end of the 2012 Festival (2nd September).

You can find a great selection of self catering cottages, apartments, lodges and more in the North Norfolk area ideal for short breaks and longer holiday stays. There are also a great selection of luxury cottages in Norfolk so if you fancy pampering yourself then take a look at some luxury Norfolk accommodation.

Royal Norfolk Show Starts Tomorrow – 27th June to 28th June

The country’s largest 2 day agricultural show, The Royal Norfolk Show, kicks off tomorrow at the Norfolk Show Ground, near Norwich in Eastern England.

As always there is a superb range of entertainment perfect for families of all ages and interests.  As you would expect the Show Grand Ring has some top class entertainment including The Household Cavalry Musical Ride, The RAF Falcons Freefall Parachute Team, The British Military Band and Double Harness Scurry Driving to name just a few.

Other entertainment includes lots of animals to see from rabbits and chickens to cows, sheep and goats, and from the largest to the smallest with heavy horses and new miniature horses. And, of course, there is also a Dog Show – which is free to the public.

New for 2012 is a live music stage called The Yo.lk which will feature local and school bands.

It’s a Country Show so you can also expect all the usual favourites including lots of competitions, Flower Shows, Exhibition trade stands, Jubilee Food Hall, cookery demonstrations, arts and crafts, fashion and so much more.

If you have not been to the Royal Norfolk Show or another of the UK’s wonderful County Shows and Fayre you are missing out.  They are a great day out – even in windy weather and mud as we found out at this year’s South of England Show.  If you are holidaying in Norfolk definitely take a look or why not take a quick short break and visit Norfolk to see the Show. There is some superb self catering holiday cottages and apartments in Norfolk that are ideal for a short break or holiday.

Find out more about The Royal Norfolk Show or take a look at other County Shows across the UK and Ireland this year.
