Located on the East Coast, Horsey Beach is one of Norfolk’s unmissable destinations.  The stretch of golden, sandy beach is home to a large colony of wild grey seals.  Britain has a large population of these seals and the best time of year to see them is during the winter. 

I had anticipated that we would be lucky even just to catch a glimpse of a seal’s head bobbing in the water.  Needless to say, I was astonished to see that what I had initially thought were rocks on the horizon were actually well-disguised clusters of seals.  There were literally hundreds of them sprawled out across the beach – it’s not hard to see why they attract thousands of visitors each year.

They are relatively passive and tame creatures and don’t seem to mind people walking by or observing them at a distance.  Seeing the seals up close was an unforgettable experience and I would highly recommend visiting Horsey Beach for yourself!
