Hunstanton

Hunstanton is situated on the western tip of the North Norfolk coast. It has spectacular sunsets as it is the only East coast resort that faces west looking
across the Wash to Boston and Skegness. There are two sides to Hunstanton; the main resort of Hunstanton is famed for its distinctive striped cliffs and fabulous beach which offers ideal conditions for playing in the sand, exploring rock pools and enjoying the sea. Only a mile further along the coast to Old Hunstanton, the quieter, more traditional face of the resort has more of a village feel with cottages built of Norfolk carstone. You can walk from one resort to the other, enjoying the views of the beach and sea, and taking in the exhilarating water sports action of windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking and paddle boarding that has become popular in this area. You can follow The Wolf Trail, which explores the gardens and cliff top scenery to trace the story of St Edmund, Hunstanton’s most famous visitor and first patron saint of England. You can download the Wolf Trail at the bottom of the page. The town also hosts a range of popular annual events including the Hunstanton & District Festival of Arts, Hunstanton Carnival, the Hunstanton Kite. Festival and much more. Find out about all the events in Hunstanton from the friendly Tourist Information Centre at the top of the Green.
Visitors to Hunstanton can enjoy some stunning gardens and excellent floral displays. The town was winner of a Gold Award and overall winner in the Coastal Resort Category of Anglia in Bloom 2013.
Hunstanton provides an excellent base to explore the coast and countryside. For walkers the beautiful Norfolk Coast Path starts from Hunstanton and at nearby Holme-next-the-Sea you can also head inland through the heart of the idyllic West Norfolk countryside on the historic Peddars Way.
