Great Couples Days Out in Norfolk

10 January 2019

Days out

Whether you are visiting for Christmas or at any other time of year, Norfolk can be a particularly romantic place, perfect for visiting couples. There are plenty of things to do and see that will help you and your partner to enjoy a day together in one another’s company as you get to know the romantic side of Norfolk.


Seething Observatory

What could be more romantic than going stargazing with your other half? At Seething Observatory, you can attend one of the many public events and get a good look at the night’s sky or listen to a talk about astronomy. This is a great option for an evening out with the one you love as you take in the magic of the stars.


Holkham Beach

A visit to the beach doesn’t just have to be for the summertime, and when you’re in Norfolk, you’ll want to be able to visit Holkham Beach all year round. Not only is the beach beautiful, it also has an extra connection to romance, having served as a filming location for the 1999 film Shakespeare in Love. Make sure to wrap up warm and take a blanket with you as you look out across the beach together.


Holkham Hall & Estate

This beautiful hall and estate provide an excellent day out for couples and families. It is still serving as a family home with the 8th Earl of Leicester and his family currently living in the house. You can now walk around much of the house and the gardens, viewing everything from the 18th-century kitchen to the beautiful walled gardens. Prices vary depending on the time of year and how much of the estate and experience you want to take part in, so check the website for up to date prices.


Walsingham Abbey

Medieval ruins may not seem like the most romantic of destinations for a day out, but there’s something different about Walsingham Abbey. The ruins are spectacular and have a peaceful yet haunting feel to them. However, from the end of January to the beginning of March every year, the woodlands are carpeted with snowdrops, bringing a sense of new life to this medieval location.


Heigham Holmes

This 500-acre nature reserve homes a huge array of wildlife, from barn owls to deer. The unique thing about this nature reserve is the fact that it is only open to the public one day a year. It is located on an island which is surrounded by the River Thurne, so you can only access it via a floating bridge, adding a little adventure to your day out. Make sure to check it out on The National Trust to stay up to date with the date of their next open day.
