Families, couples and singles alike will find plenty to do in the quaint town of Hunstanton in Norfolk. With its striped cliffs, acres of sand and clear, shallow water, Hunstanton offers lots of attractions for all ages. You will find a number of colourful seaside attractions including beach front amusements, a fun fair, bowling alley and much more.
Why not explore the beach front and promenade, home to Hunstantons first Lighthouse, built in 1666 to warn shipping of dangerous sandbanks. In summer, look out for the colourful Tractor Train which carries visitors the length of the seafront. For those of you who like boating, take a trip with Searkes Sea Tours to see the seals on the unique Wash Monster, a World War II amphibian craft, leaving from the South Promenade.
Wander along the seafront to Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary, where you can find underwater viewing tanks, bringing you face to face with an amazing collection of sea creatures. Outside in the seal enclosure get a closer look at the resident seals, including regular talks and feeding displays. The new enlarged penguin enclosure gives you a close encounter with the resident Humboldt Penguins. That’s not all, if you’re a fan of the world’s tropical rain forests, something exciting has just arrived at the centre. Visit the depths of the jungle where you can meet the new Rainforest Rangers and all their creepy crawly friends.
As you traverse the South Promenade discover a mixture of amusements and stalls for all the family to enjoy. There have been fairground rides running in Hunstanton since 1880, and the family run amusement park has been on site for over 50 years.
There are rides for all the family, from heart stopping roller coasters to the more traditional Helter Skelter. The rides on the park are provided by a number of independent operators and the prices range from £2.00 to £3.00.
No this is not a joke, Hunstanton houses “World of Fun”, the largest joke shop in England. This family run business was founded in 1978, and in 1980 was the inventor of the Fart Spray. An invention, similar to windy Hunstanton, that really does blow you away.
We’ve done a little digging and found some great events you may want to investigate on the day:-
- From 11am – 3pm go and see the Local Musicians at Busker’s Corner where local buskers play you music as you explore the heritage gardens on The Green.
- Enjoy a day out to remember at Old Hunstantons Church Flower Festival and Fete which takes place in the beautiful setting of St Mary’s Church, Old Hunstanton, dating back to the 14th Century. Open’s at 10 and runs late into the evening.
The coach is scheduled to depart Tower’s Way at 9:00am on Saturday 27th July 2019 and is expected to arrive in Hunstanton around lunch time. We will then depart Hunstanton at 5.00pm promptly, dropping off at Tower’s Way.
As in previous trips, we have booked a 49-seater executive coach. It is fitted with toilet facilities – for emergency use only. There is plenty of room for shopping and limited space for a small number of mobility scooters. The cost has been set at £5 per seat, payable in advance and non-refundable.
