Norfolk is a county in southeastern England, more specifically in the area of East Anglia. Its capital is Norwich and some of the best shopping in Norfolk, and actually in all of the United Kingdom, can be done here. Norfolk sights located in the capital include Norwich Cathedral, constructed between the 11th and 12th centuries, the picturesque historical center, the Forum and the castle. For some Norfolk culture, check out the museum located inside Norwich Castle. Norfolk tourism isn't only based on the city of Norwich, though; other Norfolk attractions include splendid beaches, the many important natural reserves in the area, and Blickling Hall. When you’re visiting Norfolk, you should also stop by the village of Walsingham, which was actually an important center of religious pilgrimage in the 11th century; an Augustinian priory was also established in the area in the 11th century. Dedicate a weekend in Norfolk to checking other monuments, such as Wymondham Abbey, built in the 12th century, Castle Acre Priory, founded in 1089, and Holkham Hall.
