Norfolk Travel Guide is a tourist website about the English county of Norfolk. As of 2018, the population of Norfolk was estimated to be 903,680 people. The most visited tourist destination in Norfolk is the well known Norfolk Broads.
If you are planning on a visit to Norfolk as a tourist then a great Norfolk holiday is so much more than just lying on a beach or shopping until you drop, to get the most from your travel adventure to Norfolk you need to know where to find the right places to see and tourist information that will enable you to get the best from your visit. Norfolk is a county waiting for you to explore and discover its cities, towns and villages, people and culture.
This is a massive undertaking for one person to capture a county the size of Norfolk but I will endeavor over time to populate Norfolk Travel Guide with information about travel, tourism, geography, history, culture, aviation, the economy and many other helpful and fascinating details about the cities, towns and villages across Norfolk.
The public administration system in Norfolk works on the decentralization principle, which ensures that the decision making and executing processes take place at the lowest possible level and closest to the citizen.
The Norfolk public administration system has many common qualities with systems of other European counties but also has typical elements exclusive to the British nation, due to historical, social and economic reasons.
This Norfolk Travel Guide includes information on the councils of Norfolk. The councils of Norfolk today are mostly named after the historical and geographical regions of the county.
A Borough or Parish is the third level of administrative division.
Some of the towns in a Council can be centres of more than one Borough or Parish. The reason is that in several cases the town itself and its surroundings form separate entities of administrative division.
|Name and Website of Council||Address||Parishes|
|Breckland District Council||Elizabeth House, Walpole Loke, Dereham, Norfolk, NR19 1EE||113|
|Broadland District Council||Thorpe Lodge, Yarmouth Road, Norwich, NR7 0DU||65|

David Smith – editor of Norfolk Travel Guide
I am David Smith, born in Birmingham in 1959 and have lived in Northern Ireland, Kidderminster in Worcestershire, Lincoln, Wimbledon in south west London, Sittingbourne in Kent and I currently live in Eastleigh Hampshire. I have always loved to travel and have visited many European countries as well as many cities and towns here in the UK. I have never married so travel is something I am free to do when time and money allows, that is.
For most of my working life I was in administration, the civil service is where I started then onto HR and moving into pensions in 1985 until about 2005.
In 2005 I moved from Kent to Hampshire to look after my mother and in 2006 I started at Asda Supermarket Eastleigh, part time until December 2019 when due to me complaining publicly about the new contract they had forced on employees despite saying two years previously they would not do it, I resigned. Since joining the company in 2006 they have year on year taken away employee benefits demanding more and more for very little pay. I decided that I had put up with enough of being treated like a slave, so I resigned before they sacked me. This has been the worse employer I have ever worked for, in 40 years of employment. I had been diagnosed with a heart problem back in the summer of 2019 and in the December I was informed by my doctor I had cancer. Some of the managers and supervisors, especially those on the check-outs, where I worked, did not care in the slightest about me or my colleagues. I tell my story here so others can see what to expect if they work for this company.
I have been a Christian since the age of eleven and although I struggle sometimes with my faith, I can honestly say that my God is with me and I have discovered many times his care for me when traveling far from home. He has made a fantastic world for us to live in but it does seem that we want to do our best to destroy it. I am not into “just religion” , for me it is about the truth.
I started to get interested in tourist websites around 2004 and paid over £4000 for my first site, a huge mistake and a total rip off by the person who did it. So I began to teach myself how to build websites using CMS and HTML, Joomla and now WordPress. Although I am now reverting back to HTML static sites for their simplicity and speed. I administer two other sites currently, Friends of St Anne’s Hospital, about a charity run hospital in Tanzania.
Created in July 2009 originally under the name of WebPoland, and until October 2014 called Poland Explorer Travel and Tourist Guide, now goes under the name Poland Travel Guide and is administered by me. I have now been traveling to Central and Eastern Europe for over 13 years and try to visit it about two or three times a year to gather information and experience the culture of the different countries.

Boarders and different countries came about because of pride and attempt to reach God by man's own hands (Tower of Babel) so the Almighty confused their language. God offers us forgiveness and reconciliation with Himself and then requires us to care for others and try to get on with others no matter where they originate from.
In other words, God did not originally design people to be separate from each other, this came about because of man's sin.
In God's new world to come, there will be no divisions among people and we will be united under Christ. No fighting, no borders, no wars, no discrimination. God's new world will be at peace and those who love God in this world will get on together without any problems.
This is why I like to travel and visit other countries and associate myself with different nationalities and cannot understand why a multicultural country like Britain wishes to leave Europe. Sure, not all is well with the EU but turning your back on 27 neighbours makes no sense to me.
