Where would you take someone visiting Norfolk for the first time?

From the Broads to the coast, to royal spots and our fine city, our county is rich with places to show off to those visiting.

Here are seven spots according to readers which they would take someone visiting Norfolk for the first time.

1. Boat trip at Wroxham

The Norfolk Broads are one of the UK’s 15 National Parks and Britain’s third-largest inland navigation area.

They were dug out in medieval times for peat, which was used for fuel. In the 14th century, these peat diggings flooded, and the Broads we know today were formed.

A trip down the river at Wroxham is just the tonic for a relaxing day.

2. Cromer pier

Cromer pier is a landmark of our county, known for its end-of-pier shows and families fishing for crabs.

The grade II listed pier is one of only five UK seaside piers with a fully working theatre with an end-of-pier show.

3. Norwich Cathedral

Norwich Cathedral’s spire has risen above our fine city’s skyline for more than 900 years.

Originally a Benedictine monastery, the cathedral has recently hosted Dippy the Dinosaur, and a helter-skelter.

Budge, the Cathedral cat, can be found snoozing in the warm nooks of the grand landmark.

Nicknamed "Sunny Hunny", Hunstanton beach has previously been named among the best beaches in the UK.

Sat alongside the town, the beach is a great spot to visit if you want to visit the amusements and grab some fish and chips.

It was once described as "Quintessentially British" and a "slice of Norfolk paradise" by a US-based Travel + Leisure magazine.

5. Seals at Horsey

Thousands of grey seals come up onto the beach at Horsey and Winterton between November and late January to give birth and mate.

It is thought that roughly half of the world’s population of grey seals live around the British coastline, and the Norfolk coast is a favourite spot of theirs, with lots of pups seen each year.

It is important to view the seals from a distance and keep dogs on leads.

6. Sandringham

Showman George Gilbert built the Hippodrome Circus in 1903.

It was designed by architect Ralph Scott Cockrill and is one of few purpose-built permanent circuses in England still in operation - with the added rarity of the circus floor sinking into a pool.
