Our North Norfolk coastline is awarded 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and it is clear to see why when visiting this charming village. Boasting pretty flint cottages, pubs, gift shops and galleries there is plenty to see in the village. Blakeney is also home to the Blakeney National Nature Reserve run by The National Trust. Here you will discover Blakeney Point home to an abundance of wildlife, the most popular being the largest Common and Grey Seal colonies in England. With over 2000 seal pups being born every year, Blakeney Point and its marshes are not only the perfect breeding site for seals, but also for migrating sea birds. The birdwatchers amongst you will hopefully be able to spot birds such as Arctic Terns, Oystercatchers and Brent Geese.
Climbing aboard the Beans Boat Trips ferry at Morston Quay, you will be taken out into Blakeney Harbour where you will have ample opportunity to photograph and get a closer look at the seals. Passing by the Old Lifeboat House, which is now a visitors centre where you can learn more about the conservation of the landscape and its wildlife, and finally arriving back at Blakeney Point. If you would prefer to keep your feet on land then you can access Blakeney Point on foot from Cley-next-the-Sea.
