Norfolk activities voted in list of nation’s top 30 happy places
A new survey has revealed the nation’s ultimate happy places with three Norfolk activities making the top 30 - how many have you done?
It seems it’s not just the people of Norfolk that love Nelson’s county with Brits voting three tourist hotspots onto the list.
Boating on the broads sailed into 13th position, closely followed by walking the dog at Holkham Bay on the north Norfolk coast at 16.
A staple of any Norfolk childhood, riding donkeys on Great Yarmouth beach was also ranked at number 26.
Eating a pub lunch in the Cotswolds was voted Brits’ ultimate happy place, with walking in the Lake District and eating an ice-cream on Brighton Beach at second and third position respectively.
The survey, which polled 1,500 British adults, was carried out by SACO (Serviced Apartment Company).
A spokesperson for SACO said: “Britain really does have it all – whether that’s food and drink, leisure, accommodation and entertainment, or the great outdoors and sprawling beaches.
“In terms of culture, history and picturesque scenery, many popular European resorts could not compete.“
