Blakeney in Norfolk

Blakeney is a very popular place at any time of the year, given its picturesque quality and the fact that it is also located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Nowadays the estuary at Blakeney is only navigable to small pleasure crafts and small fishing vessels with shallow draughts.

The village is sheltered by four miles of sand and shingle known as Blakeney Point which is owned by the National Trust.

Trips out to see the seals on the point can be booked at the quay at Blakeney.

Blakeney has a number of small shops including a small super market and delicatessen, there is a good choice of places to eat and drink with restaurants and local inns. 

Although the village has no real beach, summer months find people wading in the warm waters of the estuary and sunbathing on the sand banks.
