Find a retirement property in a county full of culture and art

From popular galleries to small-scale theatre, there's plenty to keep you busy across the towns and villages of Norfolk.

You'll find major public collections at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts or experimental work at the Norwich Arts Centre, as well as many smaller galleries across the county's market town, such as The Bircham Gallery in Holt, or the Fairfax Gallery in Burnham Market.

You can see touring productions at the 1,300-capacity Theatre Royal in Norwich, opera and musicals at the Elizabethan-style Maddermarket Theatre, or catch seaside variety shows at the Pavilion Theatre, at the end of Cromer Pier.

There are also lots of established festivals throughout the year all over the county, such as the 240-year-old Norfolk and Norwich Festival, or the Food and Drink Festival, which is the largest of its kind in England.

Retire to an area packed with nature and wildlife

With 90 miles of coastline and more than 30 nature reserves dotted around the area, there's a wide range of impressive landscapes and natural beauty to admire.

You can boat around the Norfolk Broads, a hundred square miles of navigable lakes and rivers, spot geese, falcons and owls at the Holkham National Nature Reserve, or experience vast views from the top of Beacon Hill, the highest point in the county.

If you'd rather take in an ocean view, you can explore the Norfolk Coast, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that covers almost 200 square miles of coastal and agricultural land, from the estuary of The Wash to the sand-dunes of Winterton-on-sea.

Testimonial image

My son wanted me to move a bit closer to where he lives, and Atherstone is very pretty, so I was easily persuaded. I was a little bit worried about some parts of the move, but McCarthy & Stone’s Smooth Move service made it so easy for me, I had signed within a fortnight!
