The Griffon Trails are a new way to explore some of the finest aspects of North East Norfolk’s Heritage. Each one has its own unique theme, and provides historical notes and stories to enrich your journey of discovery. Click on the links below to start exploring.
Each trail contain stopping places of interest, relevant facts, web links, maps, parking information, addresses, post codes and grid references for sat nav users.
The trails do not have to be followed in the order described. You can start at either end of a trail, and skip stops if time is short. Whilst most can be comfortably completed as a day trip by car, some could be explored over two days, selecting different points of interest each time.
Each trail comes in two versions. The print version is optimised for A4 printing or downloading to tablets. Download the mobile version if using a smart phone. You can also preview the attractions on each trail by visiting its dedicated photo gallery.
The Attractions section of this site provides links to many other key heritage sites not covered by the trails. It is organised into topics, such as museums, nature reserves, parks and gardens, walks, crafts and attractions for kids.
The Resources section will assist anyone wanting to learn more about our local heritage from a desktop. Here you will find links to heritage resources under headings such as Catalogues, Film and Photography and Village Histories.
We have also added a section devoted to apps for tablet and smart phone users. Many of these can make a day out more fun for young people. They can use their smart phone apps to take photos or identify wild life, for example.
The Accommodation section signposts the best web based resources for choosing where to stay in Norfolk.
The Events section is a direct link to events listings provided by the North Norfolk Tourist Information Office.
The Contact Us page provides an email link to the Griffon Area Partnership, which manages this project and web site.
