Sea the Seals on the north Norfolk coast

Where to see the seals on the East coast

Norfolk: Blakeney and Morston

Seals at Blakeney Point

Home to the largest seal colony in Europe, Norfolk is a great place you are almost guaranteed to see grey and common seals.

Our top tip is to take a boat trip to see the seal colony at Blakeney Point. The seals are very inquisitive and often pop up and swim around the boats. Trips go from Blakeney harbour and Morston quay, usually lasting about an hour, or two in the summer when the boats might land if tides and light make it permissible.

Another good spot for seals is Boyton Marshes, not far down the coast from Orford in Suffolk. An RSPB reserve, you can either drive to Boyton Marshes or walk along the river from Orford Quay. Seals have been spotted chilling out on the riverbanks at low tide so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.
