Exploring UK, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex

Exploring UK, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex

Sunny days in the UK have never been very frequent, so when there is someone you must always make the most of it. Exactly for this reason we could not miss this opportunity and we went on a journey for a couple of days to discover the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.

Our first destination was Rising Castle in Norfolk, but the castle was still temporarily closed due to covid-19…

Thankfully, when driving around in a Porsche 718 Boxster S, you have so much pleasure to do so that the detour was worth it even if the castle was closed.

So we decided to pull off the roof and head towards Cromer Beach, a fine sand beach in the county of Norfolk, with its classic pier typical of all the seaside cities of the United Kingdom. It is probably pretty popular even because of the blue flag…

The place was really crowded, so we decided to continue along the coast, stopping occasionally in all the beaches that are located along the road. After Mundesley Beach, we made a small stop in the Bacton area…

Continuing towards Happisburgh beach, we stopped for some other scenic shots in the “lighthouse” area…

The stops you can make along the way are truly endless; Sea Palling Beach, Waxham Beach, Horsey Beach, Winterton Beach, Quiet Beach and the most famous and certainly touristy, Great Yarmouth Beach…

Then leaving Norfolk also passing through Gorleston on Sea Beach, and entering Suffolk County, the first stop we made was “Ness Point”, which is the most eastern point of the whole United Kingdom…

For the sunset, instead, we headed first to Southwold, another vast beach of fine sand…

Then we headed to the area of ​​Aldeburgh Beach, famous for “The Scallop”, an iron sculpture that has always made a lot of discussion here in the area, repeatedly vandalised and already asked more than a few times for its removal…

We still managed to enjoy a beautiful sunset and capture some other beautiful photos…

We then decided to go back to the Lowestoft area for the night, to the hotel that we would recommend if you are here in the area… The Wherry Hotel…

The following morning, another beautiful sunny day awaited us, so… waked up early, roof off and leave early in the morning…

The first stop of the day was at Clacton Beach, another tourist resort in the county of Essex…

But the main destination of the day was Southend on-Sea, its beaches and its famous pier…

The pier, built in 1830, is 1,34 miiles long and is considered the longest pleasure pier in the world. In fact, once you have paid for the ticket and started the walk, you can hardly see the end of the pier…

Beyond its length, however, perhaps also because of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, this pier does not have much to offer; even the train was not in operation for tourists, but only probably to facilitate the few activities open on the pier…

So, in the afternoon, we decided to return to what is our favorite place on the South coast of the United Kingdom, “The Beachy Head Lighthouse” in the Eastbourne area, which we also renamed “the Lighthouse Circuit”, to have some fun with our Porsche 718 Boxster S
