    Lunch & DinnerNorth Norfolk Coast

    Restaurant Week is Norfolk’s largest dining event, a culinary celebration of our vibrant restaurant scene, fine food, and the people who produce it.

    It is the opportunity to sample those restaurants you have always wanted to try, or revisit existing favourites, all at unmissable prices. Every restaurant who takes part will offer their usual high standard of food but at an incredibly tempting price.

    Last year saw hungry diners making the most 40 unmissable priced menus at some of North Norfolk’s best restaurants. “The event has become hugely popular over the last five years, and menus, which are now available to view online, are much anticipated. The most popular places fill up quickly, which is why we always encourage people to book well in advance,” confirms founder and organiser Martin Billing

    The dawn flight of tens of thousands of pink-footed geese from Iceland and Greenland leaving their night time roost on the Wash is one of THE best nature spectacles in Europe.

    The arrival of the Pink-footed Geese in Norfolk has come to herald the start of the Autumn and Winter season for many bird-watchers and nature lovers. Every year this unique bird visits our shores in greater numbers with thousand blackening the winter sky as they head to their night roost.   Their numbers increase steadily throughout October, and by the end of November most of the geese will have arrived. The Pink-footed Goose is not only attracted to Norfolk for the Brancaster mussels or Cromer crabs, but for a rather less well known delicacy - the sugar beet. By February most will be returning home to their breeding ground in Spitsbergen, Iceland and Greenland.

    The sight of tens of thousands of geese taking off and landing en-masse is one of Norfolk's natural wonders.

    Bonfire 6pm F/W 7.30pmHunstanton Norfolk

    Hunstanton Cliffs is the perfect spot for a Guy Fawkes night celebration and the fireworks are big, loud and go on and on and on! They say that nowhere are the skies bigger than in Norfolk but these fireworks do a great job at filling it. Doors open at 5.30pm and the  giant bonfire before is lit at 6pm. The main firework display kicks off just after 7.30pm.

    Food stalls, a fairground, children's entertainment and a bonfire will accompany the fireworks display and it is worth getting there in good time as this is one of the largest and most popular in the area. If you are looking to book a meal afterwards then reserve early.

Fantastic sets and colour, the choreography, the singing and dancing, and a very special ‘Christmassy’ atmosphere. The show has a 130-strong cast and has a budget of £1.8m, and there is so much happening on the huge stage that it is  hard to decide what to focus on. The overall effect is quite breath-taking.
