Between the world renowned Holkham beach and the unique bird sanctuary of Blakeney Point, lies the pretty harbour town of Wells-next-the-sea. The harbour is used today by sailing and crabbing boats, and is overlooked by an impressive granary dating from 1904.
The beach is lined with colourful stilted beach huts and often the seals can be found basking on the sand banks. Particularly between October to February. Wells is part of the largest coastal nature reserve, and is a magnet for wading birds, avocets, marsh harriers and wild geese. A wonderful example of the natural beauty Norfolk has to offer
