We are perhaps preaching to the converted in talking to our readers about why Norfolk and Waveney is a great place to visit.

Cromer Pier, Holkham beach, the Sandringham Estate, Norwich Cathedral...the list of beautiful places to visit is endless.

Instead, we should turn our attention to convincing more people across the length and breadth of the country to visit here, rather than elsewhere.

Don’t get us wrong - a lot of people already are, with this year being another boost for tourism.

But as many people look to save money by not holidaying abroad, we are in direct competition with places like the Lake District and the West Country - which are just as easy to get to for many people.

We know Norfolk and Waveney is the best. Let’s work to convince even more people to visit - our economy will benefit as a result.
