An afternoon at Holkham beach

Posted In: Life | Life in Norfolk

If you ever find yourself on the north norfolk coast, you need to plan a stop by Holkham beach. It’s where they filmed the closing scenes of Gwyneth Paltrow in the film Shakespeare in Love! We went at low tide and had a walk around before sitting in the sand dunes. It was such a beautiful day. Funnily enough, I prefer this beach under dark clouds. It makes it look more dramatic.

While you’re there, make sure you stop by this pub called The Victoria in Holkham for drinks or lunch. The inside is beautiful but I fell in love with their really cute courtyard. I heard you can stay overnight as well so it’s great for a weekend escape from the city.

    What lovely photos. I've never been to Norfolk and I really need to start travelling more round my own country!

    Funnily enough I'm going to see Shakespeare In Love in the West End tomorrow – I love the movie!

    even though i lived in england for a short bit when i was younger, and it IS an island, i never think of the ocean and beaches. so i love all the beach pictures you post. it really makes me want to go back, i obviously missed a lot while i was there!

    I was going to say this reminds me so much of wells-next-the-sea and I just realised it's pretty much the same beach (just a little further down). We visited wells a couple months back and I loved all the pretty beach huts and walking along the dunes.
    Have a great weekend!
