Walking on Holkham Beach in North Norfolk is ranked at number 28.
The book describes it as “a seemingly endless sweep of white-gold sand stretching towards a distant sea” and suggests: “Let Holkham Beach soothe your soul as you sink your toes in its fine sands.”
Achieving number 39 on the list is Blakeney Point, where you can “see (and smell) the thousands of seals on Blakeney Point.”
Cromer comes in at number 71 on list and the book states: “The crustaceans landed here are so synonymous with the port that they borrow its name: Cromer Crab isn’t just a local boast, it’s a fishing area.
“And it’s famously sweet-tasting. Hunt it down in the narrow lanes leading from the shore.”
