“Worth a visit to see the seals”
Review of Horsey Windpump

The National Trust car park is a great place to park and walk to see the seals. At the N.T hut they will give you a map. It is a longish walk to the beach then slightly further to see the seals.

I could not believe how many there were and how close you can get,

There is also a walk that initially appears to go around the Broad but this is not the case. If you want to walk simply visit the hut and they will tell you the best places to walk.
If you are not a National Trust member you simply pay a reasonable cost for parking. You need to allow at least 2 hours. The staff are great and very helpful, even if you are not a NT member.

Although this National Trust site is very small would only take at most an hour and a half to take in, it is nonetheless interesting. The windmill needs quite a bit of tidying up, on the other hand, both inside and out. The little tea shop with gifts for sale is very small and would be overwhelmed if more than a handful of customers descended on it, but the staff member we saw was friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. There are picnic tables nearby, and there is part of the Broads is very close so the area is picturesque.

a visit to horsey windpump is a must if you are in the area, the warden was on hand to give information and then to walk over the marsh to the beach to see the seals sunbathing was a delight, although as usual these places do not make it easy to gain access if you are at all disabled or have a dog, but if you can just do it!
