Overview

WHEN TO GO


The British climate is fairly mild, though East Anglia, being flat, is extra-windy, and the winter cold can be biting. Summer sun is unpredictable, but if you want to take advantage of the big Norfolk beaches, it's usually warm enough for a bracing swim from June till August—the finest time to visit in general. Springtime (April, May) is also a lovely season, with trees in blossom, wildflowers in meadows, and lambs in fields, while fall is excellent for the foliage colors—and for foraging: Blackberries spill out from the hedgerows and mushrooms hide on the forest floors.

HOW TO GET THERE


From London's Liverpool Street station, "One" network has trains every half hour between 6 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. and hourly between 8:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m on weekdays and Saturdays. (There's also an additional 5:30 a.m. service on Saturdays). On Sundays trains depart every hour on the half hour between 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. Journey time is two hours (www.onerailway.com). Norwich International Airport is four miles from the city center and provides easy access to Amsterdam, Alicante, Dublin, Bordeaux, Geneva, Malaga, Paris, and more via the principal airlines Flybe and KLM (www.norwichinternational.com).

GETTING AROUND


The only feasible option for touring the county is to drive—meaning renting a car. You will get slightly better rates by reserving ahead of time at the following rental companies that have offices in Norwich: Hertz (www.hertz.com), National (www.nationalcar.com), and Sixt (www.sixtusa.com). Should you arrive without a reservation, try the local company Norwich Car Hire (www.norwichcarhire.co.uk).
