Couple at Beach

Celebrate Valentine's Day in East Anglia

Take a stroll on a beautiful beach

Family Walk Holkham

Enjoy a beach walk together on one of the many beaches on the East of England coast. Explore a quaint coastal town and perhaps squeeze in a bit of antiquing. Work up an appetite with a long stroll and then warm up with some fish and chips whilst you take in the view. If you have children in tow why not check out Holkham Beach, with its endless golden sands to explore and streams to dam up, perhaps they will be occupied enough to give you a moment 'alone'!
