On the 1st Saturday of each month (excluding January) Creake Abbey hosts its award winning market. 50+ stall holders come with fresh local produce including meat, fresh vegetables, fruit and flowers in season, cheeses, cakes, tartes (savoury and sweet), pies, fudge, artisan breads, pickles, rapeseed oil, vinegars, preserves, local ales, juices and plants plus much more.
After many years of fundraising, planning, preparations, discussions, designing, building, fitting and kitting out, Wells Maltings is now well and truly open! Thousands of people have already visited this wonderful new £5m arts, heritage and community centre which opened its doors to the public in July 2018.
Thanks to the restoration and repair of the Grade II-listed former Maltings building, the site has been transformed into a sustainable, exciting year-round destination for locals and visitors alike.

We have perfect conditions here in Walsingham for snowdrops to thrive: deciduous woodland with chalky, alkaline, humus-rich soil with good drainage, but which never dries out in summer. The open tree canopy lets through plenty of light in late winter and early spring.

Norfolk can boast coast, country, fen and forest walking, and all set within an easy, rolling landscape.
Enjoy walking holidays in Norfolk from woodlands in the autumn, to a brisk walk past crisp hedgerows in the crackling frosty winter. And spring and summer are spectacular with colourful wild flowers such as our famous Norfolk poppies and sun-washed sandy beaches.
The county's footpaths are well-maintained and clearly-signed and there are lots of places to begin walking with plenty of pubs, tearooms, guest houses and campsites en route where you can stop for a break.
