Visit Horsey

Horsey is a small village in Norfolk, situated in the Norfolk Broads National Park and near the coast, north-west of Great Yarmouth.

Despite its small size, Horsey has several attractions for visitors - both within the village itself, and in the surrounding region. Within Horsey itself you should visit the church and the windpump, before heading off to see the nearby beach.

Horsey Church is unusual in having a thatched roof, and a round tower most round tower churches in Britain are found in the south-east, typically in regions where flint is the main building material, probably because it was difficult to make corners with flint).

Horsey Windpump is a windmill designed to pump water now managed by the National Trust. You can climb up inside the windpump for lovely views across the region, or take one of the guided trails.

Adjacent to the village are two important scenic areas: the Horsey Dunes, a large area of sand dunes along the coast that is best known for the seals that breed here; and the Horsey Mere Nature Reserve (one of the Norfolk Broads, it is now a site of special scientific interest managed by the National Trust, closed to the public during the winter).
