Dinner at Norfolk is not like your regular restaurant visits. While you breath in the relaxing air with your date, treat yourself to something new by trying the local cuisines.

If you’re a local then you already know that the Cromer Crab is a must have! This is one of Norfolk’s most popular dishes, it may look like other crabs but trust us when we say it tastes spectacularly different!   

Who says you can only have great turkey at thanksgiving, well not at Norfolk!  The Norfolk black turkey is a must taste staple, of course add a bottle of fine wine and you’ll have yourself the finest valentine dinner ever. 

The top local restaurants/pubs in Norfolk you can visit include; Ribs of Beef (AKA the Norwich City favorite local). The Old Bank; old indeed with its ancient exterior, it gives extra romantic vibes.  


Norfolk Paddleboards  

If you think dinner at a restaurant is cliché, then you might love this idea. Suit up (not literally) and prepare yourself for the most romantic experience.

Take a trip through the riverside down Norwich and enjoy the scenery, paddle slowly and stare at the glowing the face of your partner. Norfolk Paddle Boards will give you all the training and equipment necessary to have a swell time. 

If you’re not into paddling but the water calls out to you for a romantic evening then try out the Wroxham Boat Hire. Carry a picnic, sit on the river bank and chill while the sun bathes your skin. What’s more romantic than feeding the ducks together?  


Take a Walk and Enjoy the Scenery

After a romantic dinner, take a walk round the beautiful cobbled streets of Norwich, enjoy the artistic North Norfolk coastline and talk about the one million things you love about your partners eyes.  

The Norwich cathedral is there to serve as a picturesque backdrop and the Gregorian Houses will make everything feel surreal.

Taking walks have been the sweetest thing since the onset of romantic occurrences, you can never go wrong with it. It’s a great way to conclude the special valentine’s day.
