Hunstanton's Local Attractions

At the Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary you can embark upon a fascinating journey beneath the sea and come face to face with species as diverse as Sharks, Otters, Penguins, Rays and Seahorses.

Caley Mill was originally a water mill for grinding corn. Built in the local carrstone in the 19th century, and now set in its garden of lavender, roses and herbs, it has become a distinctive Norfolk landmark. In the grounds is housed the National Collection of Lavenders, each variety or species in its own bed. There are over 100 different lavenders to see and smell.

With a range of craft, including some facinating amphibious vehicles you can take to the seas on one of a number of tours of the wash, local waters and possibly seal spotting on local sandbanks.
