Rope swing at Wells Beach, Norfolk

Can you find the best rope swing in Norfolk?

The location...

Walk the Norfolk coastal path
Wells-next-the-sea has one of the most stunning beaches in East Anglia. At high tide the sea laps up against the shore next to brightly coloured beach huts. At low tide, the sea reveals a vast expanse of golden sand that stretches as far as the eye can see. The beach is backed by a stretch of pine tree woodland, filled with felled tree stumps to clamber on and the best rope swing in Norfolk!
