Are you ready for our Norfolk Coast 50 things family adventure?

Members of the Norfolk Coast team with the new 50 things leaflet

This summer we are challenging families to have a go at a series of exciting and fun activities along the north Norfolk coast during this year’s summer holidays.

The Trust’s Norfolk Coast team has put together a list of the top five things to do at each of the special places it cares for along the coast, from Brancaster Beach and Brancaster Staithe in the west to Friary Hills and Blakeney Point in the east.

Brancaster Beach

Activities include Fly a Kite at Brancaster Beach, Make a Mud Pie at Stiffkey Marshes, Track Wild Animals at Morston Quay and Hunt for Fossils and Bones at Blakeney Point.

Alex Green, a National Trust learning officer at the Brancaster Millennium Activity Centre (BMAC), which specialises in outdoor activities for kids, said: “We care for some of the most special places on the north Norfolk coastline and they are very popular with families, both those living here and those enjoying a holiday. To help kick-start some family adventures we have created a fun and informative little guide to enable them to get more out of their time together on the coast and visit other places they maybe didn’t know about.”

The activities are drawn from the Trust’s hugely popular 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾.
And it’s good news for anyone on a budget - many of the activities are free or low cost.
 “Our guide is full of activity ideas as well as hints and tips of what to wear or what to look out for, plus it has a handy map showing all the locations along the way,” added Miss Green.
“So whatever you want to do, the guide will help you make the most out of your trip to the seaside.”

Holding a scary beast!

Those wanting an even greater challenge can also try things like kayaking, raft building or a muddy harbour ramble exploring Brancaster’s creeks and wildlife. There will be a charge of between £5 and £10 for these additional activities.

We’re on Facebook on NorfolkCoastNT and Twitter @NorfolkCoastNT and we’d love it if you shared your adventures with us using #NorfolkCoast50.


Copies of the leaflet can be picked up at any National Trust property in Norfolk, as well as Tourist Information Centres along the coast.
