This new, thoroughly updated second edition of Bradt's Norfolk, part of the distinctive 'Slow travel' series of guides to UK regions, remains the only full-blown standalone guide available to this county of contrasts, from the fine medieval city of Norwich to the watery wilderness of the Broads and the sweeping beaches of the superlative north Norfolk coast. As well as featuring all the main sights, Bradt's Norfolk covers places and aspects of the region not detailed by other guidebooks and has a special emphasis on car-free travel, walking, local food and pubs. It also includes personal anecdotes and the views of local people as well as tapping into the Norfolk-based author's considerable knowledge of the region. Making a virtue of being selective, the guide points visitors to the cream of the area, but includes the whole of Norfolk from Great Yarmouth and the Broads in the east to the Fens of the far west, from the iconic north Norfolk coast to the Breckland region to the south. Places to eat and drink are selected by the author based upon long-standing knowledge of the area, in particular delving into aspects of local distinctiveness and character. Flora and fauna are also covered, detailing the many wildlife sites within the county that are home to rare species, including the iconic Swallowtail butterfly, and information is provided on many of the best birdwatching spots. Hiking and biking, literary and artistic connections, canoeing and water-based activities, local food and drink, and all the practical information you could need are included, helping to make this the must-have guide for all visitors to this beguiling county. Written in an entertaining style combining personal narrative with authoritative information, Bradt's Norfolk has all the most up-to-date information you could need for a successful visit.
