Cobbled roads, rural pathways and coastal walks, Norfolk has a plethora of streets that are a pleasure to explore. Here we have collected just 11 of the most pretty streets in Nelson’s County

1. Elm Hill, Norwich

Elm Hill in Norwich is so attractive it was used for a scene in the Hollywood film Stardust.

2. High Street, Little Walsingham

The historical pubs and pretty cottages of Walsingham make it a perfect village to explore.

3. The Quay, Wells-next-the-Sea

Wells-next-the-Sea is a peaceful seaside village on the north Norfolk Coast and this waterside stretch is perfect to soak in the architecture, boats and charming sea views.

4. The Street, Happisburgh

Known for its red and white striped lighthouse, Happisburgh is a popular destination for seekers of that tranquillity only found in the coastal villages of Norfolk. The Street is lined with trees and attractive buildings and is just a short walk from the lighthouse, and the coast.

5. Tucker Street, Cromer

This narrow, but nonetheless enchanting street leads down to Cromer’s seafront and features pastel coloured houses and the striking Parish Church.

6. Lower Goat Lane, Norwich

Bustling with activity, Lower Goat Lane is home to quaint boutiques and tearooms such as Biddy’s Tea Room.

7. High Street, Blakeney

The pretty north Norfolk village Blakeney surely has one of the most beautiful high streets in the county.

8. Ferry Lane, Norwich

The pretty red brick houses along Ferry Lane make for the perfect evening stroll, with Norwich Cathedral standing proudly over the city.

9. Hall Road, Snettisham

The quintessential Norfolk village of Snettisham is beautiful, but the residential Hall Road, with its flower-clad cottages and charmingly mismatched brickwork make it a wonder to stroll down during the summer months.

10. High Street, Cley-next-the-Sea

Traverse down the high street in the village of Cley and see its famous windmill ducking in and out from behind the houses.

11. Church Lane, Upper Sheringham

Away from the main town, Upper Sheringham’s Church Lane is peppered with cobbled cottages running alongside the graveyard of The Parish Church of Upper Sheringham All Saints.
