History

Hello and welcome to the History page of David's Travel Guides. I have always been interested in geography and it was my favourite subject at school.

In due course I will populate this page with the subject matter.

Highlights

City Break

Each place on David's Travel Guides will have Highlights of where to visit and what to do.

As an example, Norwich is at the heart of Norfolk in England and each year thousands of tourists descend on the city to experience the sites and sounds and taste the food on offer. Although, it now has an abundance of fast food outlets and all the modern shops that you can find in any other European city, if you seek out the traditional Norfolk restaurants and explore it's ancient quarter, you will discover this historic capital of Norfolk.

Norfolk Broads

This famous Norfolk tourist attraction has 125 miles of lock free waterways waiting for you to discover. The Norfolk Broads is not only about boats but there is an abundance of wildlife to see and walks in peaceful surroundings. Relax and slow down from your busy life, enjoy the local pubs and regional food.

Nofolk Coast

I love the Norfolk coast with it's good beaches and seaside towns like Cromer, the market town and fishing port of King's Lynn.

Interesting Facts about Norfolk

If you are from the county of Norfolk, you might know about some interesting facts about the county. Please let me know so I can share it with others.

Broads National Park

The Broads National Park covers an area of 117 square miles (303 square kilometres), with the majority being in Norfolk, with over 120 miles (200 kilometres) of navigable waterways. There are seven rivers and 63 broads, the vast majority is less than 13 feet (4 metres) deep. Thirteen broads are generally open to navigation, with a further three having navigable channels.

On foot, cycling or on horseback

This region is full of hiking trails and is very popular with those that like the outdoor life. A number of cycle routes criss cross the county. Horse lovers can enjoy the bridal ways in Norfolk.

Winter

Norfolk in winter is when you need to wrap up warm before going for bracing walks. Watch the geese arrive for winter at RSPB Titchwell Marsh or admire the winter gardens at Pensthorpe Natural Park, Fakenham. With over 200 animals and birds, explore a different country, South America and their indoor play area, Jungle Tumbles, at the Amazona Zoo in Cromer.

Traditions

Norfolk being an agricultural land, each year Plough Sunday celebrations usually involve bringing a ploughshare into a church with prayers for the blessing of the land. It is traditionally held on the Sunday after Epiphany, the Sunday between 7 January and 13 January. Accordingly, work in the fields did not begin until the day after Plough Sunday: Plough Monday.

Norfolk Historic Buildings Group

The Norfolk Historic Buildings Group (NHBG) was founded in 2000 to bring together people who enjoy and appreciate old buildings and want to learn more about them.
