A north Norfolk beach has been named among the country's best beaches to visit.

Holkham was included on The AA's list of the top 20 beaches to drive to in 2023.

Placing at number eight, the spot on Holkham Estate has recently been named as a hidden gem and a beach that could be abroad.

Near Wells-Next-The-Sea, Holkham is both dog-friendly in the summer and popular among horseriders for its long, flat shoreline.

Topping The AA's list was Abersoch beach in north Wales and Seilebost beach in north Scotland.

Last month, Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds was spotted filming part of an upcoming Marvel blockbuster at Holkham. 

The 46-year-old actor was visited by his wife Blake Lively while shooting Deadpool 3 at the beach.

Holkham has also been the backdrop for films such as Shakespeare in Love and The Duchess.
