Hunstanton is a seaside town that sits on the north coast of Norfolk. It’s very popular with tourists and is well known for its long stretch of red chalk cliff, which has been eroding at an alarming rate since it was formed over 70 million years ago. The beach itself also boasts some interesting rock pools to explore and there is plenty of sea life to be observed including seals, dolphins and whales (if you’re lucky).

It had a bit of a bad reputation in the past as it was quite run down but now it has turned into one of Norfolk’s premier holiday destinations. It’s vital for anyone visiting Hunstanton Holidays to pack their walking shoes because there are plenty of things to do. 

Welcome to Hunstanton, Norfolk

Welcome to Hunstanton also known as "Sunny Hunny", a coastal town in the English county of Norfolk. The town is situated on the Norfolk coast and is known for its beautiful beaches and stunning sunsets. The cliffs at Old Hunstanton are a popular spot for walking and admiring the view, and the town is also home to a number of shops, restaurants and cafes.

Hunstanton's history as a coastal resort dates back to 1845 when local landowner Henry Le Strange had the idea of constructing a bathing resort south of the Hunstanton hamlet. The projected resort was given the name "New Hunstanton," while the original village was given the name "Old Hunstanton," to distinguish it from the village (by which it is still known today). The resort in New Hunstanton, which is centred on a distinctive triangular green and slopes down to the sea, was specifically planned by Mr Le Strange. Today, Hunstanton's unique position at the point where the chalk cliffs of North West Norfolk meet the sandy shores of The Wash makes it a popular destination for both locals and visitors alike.

Old Hunstanton Beach - Hunstanton Holidays

In the Victorian era, the latest craze was bathing resorts, and Hunstanton needed to be connected to the public transportation system to take advantage of this trend. The resort's first building was constructed in 1846, but it wasn't until 1862 that the Great Eastern Counties Railway built a line from King's Lynn to Hunstanton, making the resort immediately accessible to day visitors who could stroll out onto the beach promenade after leaving the station.

The Hunstanton pier, which was built in 1870 and later had a pavilion added in 1890, was an essential component of any Victorian coastal town. This was a typical pleasure pier of the time, although it was unusually lengthy. A small steam train would run up and down to the pavilion, providing amusement for visitors. However, the pier has not been able to withstand the test of time; it was damaged by fire in the 1930s and 1950s and then almost completely destroyed by a storm in 1978.

In the end, the 2002 fire destroyed the pier completely. Now, where the pier used to stand, there is a bowling alley and an amusement arcade also known as Hunstanton Pier - Family Entertainment Centre.
