Great Yarmouth has the second best set of city walls in the UK with much of the Roman fortifications remaining, topped up over the years by other occupiers. Lowestoft is found to the southeast on the A146. It’s a quieter resort than its neighbour, Great Yarmouth and is just tucked inside Suffolk. Again, a superb beach graces the town and it is home to Britain’s largest wind turbine called ‘Gulliver’.
North on the A140 takes you to Cromer, a pretty beachside town. Whilst often windswept from their North Sea aspect, the beaches around Cromer have fine pale golden sand and are backed by extensive sand dunes. Travel southwest on the A11 and you’ll reach Thetford which is thought to have been where the royal palace of Queen Boudicca was. Archaeological finds have shown that during the Roman era, Thetford was an important town.
