Norfolk website launched to inspire year-round experiences for residents and visitors
11 October 2022
A vibrant new website, BeNorfolk.co.uk, has been launched today to inspire visitors and locals to try out more than 300 activities and experiences showcasing the best of Norfolk’s nature and culture.
It aims to encourage off-season visits with a variety of free and paid-for experiences, with many of them providing experiences for people with additional physical, sensory, and cognitive requirements.
This website offers inspiration for new walks, cycle routes, adventure and activities for nature lovers, no matter the weather!
BeNorfolk will showcase the county and encourage people to access the full breadth of arts, culture, nature, heritage, and local produce available.
Ranging from guided walks to new cycle paths, craft activities to Champing (camping in historical churches) or stargazing in the Broads, the website is part of the EXPERIENCE project managed by Norfolk County Council. The project is funded by the European Union through its European Regional Development Fund and Interreg VA France (Channel) England programme. The project spans six pilot regions in France and England.
Cllr Eric Vardy, Norfolk County Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Waste, said: “We are delighted that BeNorfolk will celebrate the natural and cultural assets of Norfolk, including new and exciting trails and cycling routes to try out. This website pulls together an array of diverse, accessible and sustainable experiences for residents and visitors to explore and enjoy what our county has to offer.”
The new website aims to help people choose the right experiences and activities for them, using filters such as accessibility, theme and season.
Visitors and residents can explore the BeNorfolk interactive website to find events tailored to their interests and location. Users can pick from an extensive menu of options to design their own itineraries to get out and about across the county, meet new people and try something different. People are encouraged to explore the website as new activities are added.
