The seaside town is a Victorian resort and retains its Victorian charm and character to this day, remaining a popular holiday destination for visitors of all ages. From buzzing family activities such as Crazy Golf, Pitch-and-Putt, and the Oasis Leisure Centre to the tranquil Esplanade Gardens and marvellous sunsets, there is something for everyone. Hunstanton’s excellent beach offers ideal conditions for playing on the sand, exploring rock pools, and enjoying the sea and as the only west facing resort on the East coast it is an ideal location for water sports.

More details about the town plus overnight accommodation is available on the Visit West Norfolk website.
