Combine traditional Victorian seaside resorts with exquisite countryside and close proximity to London and you've got yourself an enchanting holiday destination. Thus the popularity of Norfolk among UK holidaymakers is easy to understand. It's not only the idyllic rural environments which attract visitors to this eastern county, though. The county's vibrant towns are popular with tourists who like to try their luck on the road. From Norwich to Great Yarmouth, there's no shortage of casino hotels in Norfolk.
Great Yarmouth: Norfolk's Casino Capital
The casino capital of Norfolk sits pretty on the county's east coast. Great Yarmouth is one of Norfolk's most vibrant towns, as well as being one of its oldest. Keen gamblers have their pick of all the favourites - from Grosvenor to the Golden Nugget Family. There are plenty of exquisite restaurants and lively bars for when the time comes to take a break, and the town's array of hotels is second to none.
In terms of location, it doesn't get much better than The Carlton Hotel, which is right on the seafront, opposite the popular Sea Life Centre. Those who prefer somewhere peaceful can head to the White Lodge, a charming B&B, situated by the Venetian Waterway Gardens.
Roll the Dice in Norwich
As the county's only city, it's no shock that Norwich is also keen to get in on the gambling action. The historic city centre is home to a number of casinos of varying sizes. The city is the best place on Norfolk for eating out, and there's a varied mix of independent shops to browse when you've finished throwing the dice.
Norwich is also home to many of the best hotels in Norfolk. There are a number of well-known hotel brands such as Holiday Inn and Best Western that operate affordable hotels close to the city centre. Alternatively, visitors can book into a welcoming bed and breakfast on the edge of town. Here, you can speak to the friendly staff about the best places to gamble in the gorgeous city of Norwich. There's also plenty of opportunity to travel outside the city centre and check out the county's sublime countryside.
