Hunstanton is a traditional Victorian seaside town complete with a wonderful sandy beach, fish and chip shops and renowned for it's beautiful sunsets over the sea. It has become a mecca for Kite Surfers and there are regular competitions held over the year.
Buckets and spades are the order of the day and the town bustles during the summer months. The town was founded by Henry Le Strange and in 1846 he had the idea to cash in on the new craze of bathing in the sea by creating the 'sea bathing station' of Hunstanton St Edmund.
There are lots of interesting buildings around the original Victorian town, many in the Arts and Crafts style; the architect HG Ibberson being responsible for many of the fine buildings.
With grassy peaceful squares, a long promenade and a green that runs down to the bandstand, Hunstanton provides a traditional seaside family holiday for everyone.
Guests who have not been to Hunstanton before are always surprised at what a fabulous beach there is, it is one of only a couple that you can actually walk to without crossing the salt marshes, and it is well worth making the detour from the more well known places such as Brancaster.
