…and discover the nation’s hidden gems
The most popular tourist attractions are usually popular for a reason, but step off the beaten track once in a while and you’ll be sure to find some true hidden gems. From untouched beaches to tiny cafés that serve the most delicious food in the land, you never know what you might find when you dig a little deeper than what your usual holiday resort has to offer.
Undiscovered attractions in Norfolk
Norfolk is one of the nation’s favourite holiday destinations and it’s got more top tourist attractions than you can shake a bucket and spade at. But as soon as you step off the beaten tourist path, you’re guaranteed to uncover loads of hidden gems near Great Yarmouth Holiday Parks that you won’t find in the tourist brochures.
If you’re feeling peckish, head to the Wiveton Hall café – a tiny coffee shop which, according to Delia Smith, serves ‘Britain’s best food’. And for a great family day out, don’t miss a trip to Thrigby Hall. This miniature zoo lets animal-lovers get really close to the animals, which include monkeys, crocodiles and leopards.
Another often underrated attraction near the Great Yarmouth Holiday Parks is the Wroxham barns. Your kids will love this real farmyard setting where they can feed the rabbits, bottle feed the lambs and collect their own eggs. Feeding sessions run all day so arrive early so you don’t miss a thing.
Secret hotspots in Lincolnshire
Norfolk is not the only British county with some great secret attractions tucked up its sleeve. Lincolnshire also has some great hidden gems to rival the main tourist attractions. And with plenty of caravans for sale in Lincolnshire, this county has all the ingredients for a great holiday.
Brayford Pool in Lincoln is a great place to spend a lazy afternoon people watching while drinking a cool beverage. After that enjoy the greenery at Hartsholme Country Park – it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and a lovely place to feed the ducks with the kids.
And as far as hidden gems to satisfy your hunger are concerned, Rachel’s Café in Hagworthingham is the perfect place. It’s just a few miles from the coast and you could stop off there for a bite to eat on your way to the holiday park!
