On Tuesday Becca and I woke up ridiculously to have a reunion on the North Norfolk Coast with Lucy. We were heading to the coast for an overdue catch up, sea air and of course, Fish and Chips. We drove inland and picked up Lucy from her idyllic house and then headed to Wells-Next-To-The-Sea.
Wells is a lovely village and in my opinion the best place to get Fish and Chips in Norfolk. We wandered down the front, before walking out towards the beach. It isn’t a long walk, but there is a little train if you aren’t feeling the walk. At this point the sun was shining so we walked up, past the harbour and the boats out towards the sea.
I always forget how nice Wells beach is and how all beaches on the North Norfolk coast just seem to go on for miles on end. Once we had walked down to the sea edge we walked along towards Holkham beach before heading back again. Of course we paddled, and yes it was freezing as ever but you have to when you’re by the sea. The sun was also shining at this point so it actually felt like it was a British Summer.
After finally putting our sandy feet into our shoes (is there anything worse – I will be forever finding sand in my car now) we then wandered back to Wells to have fish and chips in the harbour.
Then we took a detour along the coast. I thought I knew where I was going, but went the wrong direction and ended up at Hunstanton, whoops. But, we weren’t complaining.
After that, we drove to our original destination, Blakeney.
Thankfully we made it in time to go to Grey Seal Coffee, one of the 25 best Cafe’s in the UK. I can confirm that the ginger cake and coffee didn’t disappoint.
It was lovely to be reunited on the North Norfolk Coast one of my favourite places in the UK.
Have you been to the North Norfolk Coast?
