Some of the best quality sand in the country can be found along the vast stretches of beach that run from Lincolnshire down towards Suffolk. This part of the east coast is also home to immaculately preserved wildlife reserves that include colonies of rare seabirds and herds of seals.
Heading inland, the relaxed countryside and historical cities are well worth a visit. From stately Norwich Castle to the imposing gothic splendour of Lincoln Cathedral, taking a trip to visit these storied structures should definitely be part of your itinerary. If your tastes lean more towards a stately home, then Ickworth House in Suffolk and Holkham Hall in North Norfolk are both high-quality day trips, the latter only being a brisk walk from the beach!
We boast ten holiday parks along this stretch of coast, so we’ve got you covered if you want a Norfolk holiday or a relaxing stay along the Suffolk or Lincolnshire coast. Find out more below.

Beachwise, there really is something for everyone in East Anglia and Lincolnshire.
Whether you want to be amongst the excitement and the arcades of Great Yarmouth, or you wish to utilise the relaxed Kessingland Beach as a base for your Suffolk holiday, this region has it all for an ideal bucket and spade break.
For a real isolated feel, consider the very quiet micro-resort of Anderby Creek just up the coast from Skegness, which is a great dog-friendly beach amongst many others in the region, because your pooch needs a holiday too!

History & Culture
This part of the world can leave you spoiled with the sheer variety of historical and cultural sights available. Lincoln’s pretty mix of Roman and medieval structures should keep you occupied for a day at the very least.
A visit to Norwich Cathedral is also highly recommended - if only to see if you can find the English Civil War musket ball still embedded in a wall from hundreds of years ago! The city itself is a buzzing arts and culture hub with plenty of events occurring across venues all year round.
The iconic cuisine of the East Anglian coast is crab, and it’s available as a succulently snackable seafood all across the region.
Don’t overlook traditional fish and chips either - Skegness and Yarmouth alike have a huge array of championship chippies.
For the ale lovers amongst us, Adnams beers from Southwold are truly the taste of the region.
Family fun is in near infinite supply all across this region, but a highlight worth mentioning is the ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure Park just outside of Norwich, featuring a dinosaur trail, an award-winning play area and much more to entertain dino-mad little ones.
As ever, our holiday parks offer brilliant entertainment for the whole family, as well as swimming pools and play areas, to ensure you and your loved ones are never bored.
Lincolnshire’s premier summertime event is the Cadwell Park motorcycle race, occuring in August every year, when thousands of motorcycle fans descend on the racetrack set in an idyllic location in the Lincolnshire Wolds for a weekend of high-speed action.
East Anglia’s FolkEast festival will appeal to those looking for chilled summertime festival vibes instead - and of course, our Vauxhall Weekenders series of events at the holiday park of the same name are as varied as they are fun!
