Wells-next-the-Sea village, Norfolk

Wells-next-the-Sea  village information

The seaside village of Wells-next-the-Sea is a bracing, mile-long walk from the sea. With its brightly painted beach-huts, colour-washed houses and Victorian shop fronts, Wells is evocative of another age and a popular destination to visit. It can be found on the north Norfolk coast road, close to the villages of Burnham Overy Staithe, Morston and Blakeney. Wells-next-the-Sea is popular with those who enjoy sailing and water-skiing as well as those who love walking and bird-watching. The salt-marshes and channel waters up to the harbour, attract a variety of birds throughout the year, such as Terns and Brent Geese. The raised causeway takes you parallel to the channel and marshes and is accessible to buggies and wheelchair users, having a smooth path and ramps at intervals. There are plenty of activities for children including the old-fashioned childhood pursuits of building sandcastles, creating damns at the mouth of the channel, (although pay attention to the tides), playing pitch and putt, fishing for crabs on the quayside and playing in the penny arcades. Staithe Street is a narrow, mainly pedestrianised street, with several quaint shops selling craft items, antiques and clothing and there are some nice teashops. Boat trips are available to see the seals and leave from the harbour. On the harbour you can also buy crabs, mussels, samphire and fish and chips. The Old Granary, next to the harbour, is now a theatre and community hall. The original school is now used as a study centre by school children. St Nicholas Parish Church, a 2 minute walk from Staithe Street, was destroyed by fire in 1879 but was rebuilt on the same site, largely to the same design. To the left of the church, you can see one of Wells' original water pumps.
