Norfolk

Supporting High Street retailers is something we believe in here at Eastpac, and with the many unique shopping experiences to sample throughout Norfolk, it’s a haven for both the Retail Therapy Fanatic and the casual browser.

Norfolk, sometimes mistakenly thought to be just a county to retire to, is a hidden gem of English history. There are widely unique experiences from coastal towns to the buzzing city of Norwich.

As we travel Norfolk visiting Retail shops showcasing our retail packaging we often get to see the beauty, so we’ve picked three areas in the county to ‘give a taste’ they are; Wells Next The Sea, Norwich and Holt.

Don’t forget it is only a taste – there are many other places well worth a visit!

Wells Next The Sea, Norfolk

Get to Wells-Next-The-Sea early – experience the bustle of the Quay side in the early rising sun. If you’re lucky to be there when the tide is coming in, notice how fast the boats rise against the Quay side. Explore up & down Straithe Street with its many unique shops from Bakers to Clothes & gifts. Sample the sea food cuisine and if you’re really into boats, visit the chandlery shop! And don’t forget a spot of crab fishing – a bucket on a string with some bacon bait is good fun.

Norwich, Norfolk

Norwich – Unique, diverse, fun... almost inexhaustible. From the modern shopping centre; the individual department store of Jerrold’s, the quaint Arcade & market place, to the individual tranquillity of Elm Hill. Norwich pulses and creates an exciting environment to make a great day out.

Holt, Norfolk

Holt is a gorgeous, bustling market town. That upmarket shopping experience that makes you proud to stroll the streets; the quaint alleys, the main High Street, the small boutiques, the larger department stores. Take time to take in the architecture including the war memorial and exquisite bakery
