By-the-sea amenities

A forerunner in the wind-energy industry, the town is both a centre for tourism and environment-positive business. For day-to-day essentials, you have a range of supermarkets and most shops are all within walking distance of the town centre. Plus, you have the central marketplace, and a wealth of Independent shops and high-street stores can be found in The Rows, King Street, Northgate Street, Regent Street and in the pedestrianised Regent Road. 

For extra coastal delights, you can head to the seafront shops, cafés and fish stalls, which are a bonus in the summer season. And for a day trip, historic Norwich is the place to go. 

Education opportunities 

For growing families, you have a good range of primary and secondary school options, including the Charter Academy and the Lynn Grove Academy. And for further education, you have the East Norfolk Sixth Form College in the Gorleston-on-Sea area of the town.

Well connected

The A47 and A143 are the main road routes, connecting it with Norwich, 20 miles to the west, and Bungay, Diss and Bury St Edmunds to the southwest. The A47 continues south, down the coast, taking you to Lowestoft via Gorleston-on-Sea. 

By rail, you can get to Norwich, and from there connect to mainline services including to London Liverpool Street - which takes just under two and a half hours. Norwich Airport, for domestic and European flights, has a drive time of about 40 minutes.
