Places in the UK – Norfolk

Norfolk is a beautiful county in East Anglia, England.

If you’re considering relocating to the UK for a new health or social care role and are wondering where might be a nice place to live, Norfolk may tick a lot of your boxes - it offers a wonderful blend of modern and historic. Here, you can expect a thriving community of great people, several pretty beaches with amazing views, an array of lovely places to go for long walks plus endless pubs, restaurants, and cafés.

In this blog, we’ll share a little about why Norfolk makes an ideal place to live:

Restaurants and pubs

The food and drink options across Norfolk are varied and vast. For an intimate, European dining experience you could try The Mulberry in Thetford, or how about Morston Hall in Holt – its menu is complemented by fine seasonal produce from the Norfolk coastline. If you’re based in or around the Norwich city area, Ali Tandoori offers delicious and authentic Indian cuisine at affordable prices, or Haggle, also in Norwich, which boasts an array of tasty Turkish food within a vibrant setting.  

Activities for all the family

There’s so much to enjoy and discover across Norfolk, whether you’ve relocated on your own, with a friend or partner, or with your kids. You’ve got BeWILDerwood Norfolk - you’ll need to bring along your imagination and lots of energy as you explore this forest adventure! From the fantastic slides of Slippery Slopes and the boat ride along the Scaaaary Lake, to roaming along the The Broken Bridge and climbing up to magical treehouses – there’s lots of fun to be had. Or what about Congo Rapids Adventure Golf, suitable for ages 4+. It’s an 18-hole adventure golf course full of obstacles, including a real plane, waterfalls, and a volcano!

Norfolk Nature

Norfolk offers a variety of amazing outdoor activities. If you’re new to the area and keen to get out and explore, you’ll have lots to choose from – grand gardens, historic walks, and beautiful landscapes to name a few. The Norfolk Broads is over 117 square miles of woodland and waters with lots of outdoor activities for you to try, such as hiring a boat for the day. Or how about Pensthorpe Natural Park where you can explore 700 acres of woodland walks and nature trails – it is also the former home of the BBC’s Springwatch, a much-loved TV series focusing on British wildlife during the season of spring!
