The tourist information brand Visit North Norfolk has launched a campaign that encourages visitors to north Norfolk to enjoy the outdoors and make the most of the beaches, countryside and Broads National Park they have available.

To help promote the area, the tourist office has created a series of films and guides to instruct children and adults in the delights of outdoor pursuits. North Norfolk has so much to offer in ways of outdoor activities the whole family can enjoy.

Research conducted by Visit North Norfolk revealed that 48% of adults and children didn’t know how to use a compass; 22% had never climbed a tree and 21% had never flown a kite. Parents cited a lack of knowledge and money as the main obstacles for trying outdoor activities.

The films created covered areas such as building sandcastles, catching crabs, mooring boats, how to beachcomb, spotting and naming clouds and how to use a compass. Accompanying the films are how to guides providing instructions, hints and tips.

Kayla Dunne, brand manager from Visit North Norfolk, said: “We were quite surprised that our research highlighted so many people do not know these traditional skills or how to enjoy these outdoor pastimes.

“Activities such as beachcombing or finding your way using a compass are enjoyed by all ages and are a great way to enjoy the north Norfolk coast and the countryside.”

With our holiday parks in north Norfolk in a great location for seaside holidays and outdoor adventures, and with a number of holiday properties for sale, our parks are the perfect place to stay at when enjoying a ‘Nip to North Norfolk.’
