Sea Palling, on account of the nine off-shore reefs built as part of the flood prevention scheme, has a
wonderful sandy beach, which has been awarded and retained the coveted Blue Flag award for several
years. During the summer, there are Royal National Lifeboat Institute lifeguards on duty every day and
additionally our Inshore Lifeboat Crew all carry pagers so the boat is on call 24 hours a day 365 days a
year. As well as good swimming , there is also provision for launching personal water crafts.
There are two pubs, cafes, amusement arcade, a Post Office and general store, farm shop and a stall
which sells fish caught locally. The market town of Stalham is four miles away. There is a regular direct
bus service during the week to Wroxham and onto Norwich for shopping and sight seeing. We are
equidistant from the seaside resorts of Great Yarmouth and Cromer.
If you are interested in nature then the Norfolk Wildlife Trust reserve at Hickling is only four miles away
and both the NWT and RSPB have reserves easily reached by car. A walk along the beach towards
Waxham and Horsey (National Trust) may well be rewarded with sightings of seals. For historians there
is the famous Waxham Barn which has been rebuilt following severe damage in the Great Storm of
October 1987. Originally built by the Wodehouse family in the late 16th. Century, it is one of the largest in
the country. Norwich, some twenty miles away, is famed for having the greatest number of medieval
churches in northern Europe, together with the only remaining complete medieval friary in the country.
