...and explore the cliffs, beach and rock pools at Hunstanton
The elegant resort of Hunstanton is the ideal base to enjoy Norfolk's superb coastline. Hunstanton, or 'Hunston' as it is known locally, is renowned for its unique striped cliffs and magnificent sunsets, made special by its position as the only west-facing resort on the East coast.
The seaside town began as a purposely-built resort in 1846 and retains its Victorian charm and character to this day, remaining a popular holiday destination for visitors of all ages, but especially families. From the Esplanade Gardens to buzzing family activities such as Crazy Golf, Pitch-and-Putt, and the Oasis Leisure Centre.
Hunstanton’s excellent beach, again awarded Blue Flag status in 2011, offers ideal conditions for playing on the sand, exploring rock pools, and enjoying the sea.
Old Hunstanton has a much more quieter village atmosphere, with carstone-built cottages, traditional British pubs and a much more slower pace of life in general. You can walk from one resort to the other, so you can delight in experiencing the two different areas of Hunstanton in one day.
Hunstanton’s popular seasonal land train carries visitors from Searles Leisure Resort to the Lighthouse and back again, making it very easy, and fun, to travel around Hunstanton, taking in many of the sights that the resort has to offer.
