wells at low tide

Wells-next-the-Sea - a few of my favourites

Wells is a small town situated behind a picturesque harbour, there is plenty to do in this area; walk along the sandy beaches, bird watch on the salt marshes; crab fish on the quay; visit tradional pubs; cycle on quiet paths and roads. Wells has a good selection of shops, butchers, bakers, fruitshops etc and good pubs and restaurants.

Walk along the beach - around 6 miles. Have lunch in the Nelson then get the coast hopper bus back to Wells. The bus runs every half hour in the summer and every hour in the winter.





Red LionWalk from Wells to Stiffkey

Walk along the edge of the salt amrsh to Stiffkey then go for lunch in the Red Lion. Its only 3 miles.
