Stripes Express Guide to Norfolk

seals in norfolk

As taxi drivers we spend much of our day collecting our customers from day trips and evenings out and enjoy learning about how they’ve spent their spare time. We love being based in Norfolk, with plenty of things to do throughout the year, we could write an endless list of fantastic local attractions, restaurants and sights, but here is just a few we think you should visit if you haven’t already.

Food Lover

If you’re looking for a fine dining experience in a relaxed setting Ingham Swan is the restaurant for you. Norfolk born chef pateon Daniel Smith and head chef Alex Clare ensures the restaurant is always serving top quality ingredients with many of the dishes featuring locally sourced produce. If you’ve got something to celebrate or just fancy treating yourself to some fine food, we would certainly recommend a trip to The Ingham Swan for a meal you will be talking about for the rest of the week.

Beach Walks

Norfolk is home to many beaches, with each one having its own characteristics from sandy shores to shingle bays there’s a beach for everyone. We could list them all but you can’t beat a trip to Horsey Gap, well known for being home to one of the largest colonies of Grey Seals ever found. It’s a wonderful way to experience the seals in their natural habitat however we urge our customers to ensure they keep their distance (at least 10 metres) and please never come between a pup and their mother. Approaching seal pups may lead to the mother abandoning the Pup.

Wine connoisseur

Love wine? Then Bijou Wine Bar based on Horning Road West, Wroxham Horning Road West

is the place for you. Bijoi is a combination of wine bar, wine shop and delicatessen. Featuring wine from small wineries, local estates and family owned businesses to larger producer.  If you’re looking for advice or unsure what wine to pick the staff are always on hand to give you a helping hand with their extensive wine knowledge.

Be entertained

For local entertainment you can’t beat Cromer Pier, with end of the pier shows from regular tribute bands to the famous Christmas Performance, there really is something for everyone, and once you’ve finished the show enjoy the coastal views of Cromer and treat yourself to a tray of fish and chips.
