    Norwich Sports & Outdoors

    Carrow Road is home to Norwich City Football Club.Norwich moved to their current stadium in 1935. It's not he biggest of grounds and so tickets can be hard to come by. Today it's an all seater stadium with a capacity of just over 27,000.The combination of a city centre stadium, a nearby train station and plenty of decent pubs nearby makes Norwich...

  • To Norwich by train

    Norwich Transportation

    Norwich's good train connection reflects its importance in Victorian times when there were three large train stations in the city. After the other two closed down, Norwich Thorpe became the main station. The station is located east to the city centre with most places of interest within walking distance.Hourly services are available to Liverpool,...

  • Norfolk Coasthopper

    Hunstanton Transportation

    Hunstanton stands at one end of the 'Coasthopper' service that provides public transport along the North Norfolk coast as far as Cromer. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty, and even if you have a car, it is an ideal way to explore the region.I always think that you get a better 'feel' of a region by using such services, and this one forms...

  • Thetford Forest...

    Thetford Favorites

    I love cities like London or Berlin, with their myriad green spaces & parks, but Thetford isn't this type of settlement - it's an old country market town, that since the growing of The King's Forest, (begun in 1922 to prevent soil erosion in this sandy Breckland area) has become dominated by its surrounding evergreen space...Thetford is a town...

  • The Three Tuns and the River Delph

    Welney Off The Beaten Path

    Just to the east of the village is the River Delph, alongside the Old Bedford River. Just to the north is one of the control sluices.Alongside the river here, behind the village hall, is the now abandoned Three Tuns pub. It's a lovely old building, but now derelict. It's sad to see these old buildings and old businesses disappearing.

    Welney Things to Do

    The Ouse Washes were created in the 17th Century by the Dutch waterways engineer, Cornelius Vermuyden - a man of considerable genius but much hated by the people of The Fens at the time. Stretching for almost 40km between the Old and New Bedford Rivers, and a kilometre wide, the Ouse Washes form a huge flood storage reservoir. When the local river...

    Welney Restaurants

    The Flag and Lamb pub sits right in the middle of the village, covered in ivy. The staff are friendly and there is a garden out at the back with tables and a couple of tables at the front and side as well. It's a tied pub (to the local Elgood's brewery).Standard (i.e. excellent) country pub food.

    Upwell Things to Do

    I have seen the angels over Upwell.If you happen to visit St Peter's Church during the week you first must obtain the key at the local post office/card/gift shop. As you make your way into the churchyard you are surrounded by the headstones of past parishoners dating back a very very long time as St Peter's church was built during the 13th century...
