Places to visit - Hunstanton

Hunstanton is a charming coastal town located in the county of Norfolk, England. The town is a popular seaside resort and has been a destination for holidaymakers for many years. It is known for its distinctive red and white striped cliffs, which are composed of carrstone and chalk.

Our kids love a beach day, but here's a little secret, we often go there towards the end of the day when everyone is going home. 


The sunsets there are amazing and eating fish & chips, ice-cream on the sea front can't be beaten.

When the kids get bored, there's a funfair there (Rainbow Park) as well, situated right on the seafront in close proximity to the Sea Life Sanctuary.

If you go during the day, go out on the Sea Monster (pictured by the fairground above) or go further out and see some seals and even dolphins and whales if you're lucky!

In addition to traditional seaside activities, Hunstanton offers opportunities for water sports, including windsurfing and kitesurfing.

The area around Hunstanton is known for its birdwatching opportunities too, and nearby reserves, such as the RSPB Titchwell Marsh, attract bird enthusiasts.

Hunstanton also offers free open air cinema nights, rock-up with your chairs, blankets, food and drink (alcohol is allowed!) or go to the annual soap box derby they hold.

Overall, Hunstanton is a charming coastal town that combines traditional seaside attractions with natural beauty, making it a popular destination for both locals like us, and tourists.
