Norfolk Coast 

Great Yarmouth BeachNorfolk lies on the east coast of Britain overlooking the North Sea, Suffolk les to the south and Lincolnshire to the north. Norfolk is a mostly rural county with fairly long coastline which is dotted with small fishing villages and seaside resorts. Norfolk is mostly low lying with few cliffs and mostly sand or shingle beaches - it is prone to erosion in the same way that Suffolk is. The administrative centre of Norfolk is Norwich and the county has a population of around 850,000 but with a low density due to the size of the county. 

Great Yarmouth is the main seaside resort within the county and has around 15 miles of beaches nearby, - it is also the gateway to the Norfolk Broads, a large area of fresh water lakes and canals. Kings Lynn is a historic port that was very busy in Victorian times but is now a resort town. Cromer and the nearby town of Wells-next-the-Sea are small seaside resorts in the tradition mould; with sandy beaches, plenty of cafes and pubs and amusements to keep the kids happy.
