The area and getting around
Magical natural phenomena
Hunstanton’s cliffs are quite extraordinary, with a honey-gold base topped with a chalky white top. They are a site of Special Scientific Interest, and the area is a great source of ammonite fossils. The cliffs are home to breeding fulmars, and those interested in birds will also appreciate the RSPB site just outside the town of Hunstanton. Home to multitudes of Grey and Common seals, day trips leaving from the central promenade give visitors the opportunity to view the local colonies and a unique insight into these fascinating animals.

Hunstanton is a haven of history. In the 1800s the owner of Hunstanton Hall, Henry Styleman Le Strange, built a railway line from Kings Lynn to Hunstanton, opening up the town as a Victorian bathing resort. When Henry died, his son, Hamon, took up the mantle, and with his own passion for architecture, Hamon invested in the development of this beautiful town, affording it the elegance and character that survives today. Hunstanton Hall itself, once the home of one of Norfolk’s most powerful families, is now open to the public. Featuring gothic style battlements, Hunstanton Hall also has a, exceptional orchard, a moat – and, they say, a resident ghost!
Hunstanton Hall is the inspiration behind P.G. Wodehouse’s famous ‘Woollam Chersey’, the country home of Bertie Wooster’s Aunt Agatha.
