Norfolk is a beautiful place to visit at any time of the year, but there is just something special about seeing it in the height of autumn. If you are looking for somewhere filled with the colours of autumn, we have chosen some of our favourite places for a seasonal stroll.
Bacton Wood, North Walsham
Bacton Wood, also known as Witton Wood, is located near our Norfolk holiday park. With the ancient Sessile Oaks, which sit among pine and larch trees, it creates a beautiful location. The woods cover about 280 acres and are popular with mountain bikers for its slopes and off trail paths. Bacton Wood is also the perfect place for your pooch, as it has wide crisscrossing paths which make for an interesting walk.
The Walks, King’s Lynn
This is a fantastic place to enjoy the glorious autumn season. The Walks, sits in the heart of King’s Lynn. 800 mature trees tower over the park, perfect for squirrel and bird spotting. Keep an eye out for the big piles of colourful leaves which are just waiting to be kicked.
Foxley Wood, Dereham
Foxley Wood is the perfect place to escape reality as it is the largest ancient wood in Norfolk. The woods are renowned for its bluebells in spring, and loved for its tranquillity in the autumn where the silence is only broken by the sound of a singing bird.
Sheringham Park has mature woodlands with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. The woodland garden has miles of footpaths, which are also great for cycling. With nearly 100 acres to explore you can take a long or short walk to enjoy the picturesque views and wildlife which Sheringham Park has to offer.
