If you are looking for a glamorous break, then Norfolk is not the place for you. The Norfolk Broads of East Anglia is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK and is a relaxing and soothing rural getaway rather than a high-powered city-break. People here are mostly associated with the wetlands of the Norfolk Broads.

However, if you want to enhance your enjoyment a little more, then you can head to the nearby towns like Norwich and King’s Lynn, and add some extra toppings to your trip. The towns would give you shopping opportunities, nightlife fun and some doze of city like entertainment.
