    As a child in the 1960s my bedroom window faced this car park. From Easter to September there was a man on the gate collecting money and it was never a cheap place to park. When the weather was warm it was always full. As it will be this summer. The price has never put people off coming. If the money was not raised this way it would most likely go onto the council tax bill and in a town where most of the employment is seasonal people would not be able to pay for it. In the winter months when it was free hardly anybody used it and I played golf on it. The pitch and putt coarse was a corn field owned by Mr Pull. A man very much missed. I have lived in Spain for the last 20 years and I can assure you that most places of interest does charge for parking.

    Robin, If they let people park for free then you would have the car park full of cars

  • ROBIN 27 days ago
    Pity the car park is ‘pay and display’ if it was in Spain it would be free, why pay for natural beauty ?

    This is just sheer brilliance, love the view and it shows the very best side of Hunstanton (in my opinion only) and the real-time live video feed is even better 3 webcams in Sunny Hunny while Kings Lynn, a major populous town for the county of Norfolk, has 1 and it's an updated one every 30 sec for the poontons and that's it. Hunstanton is showing King's Lynn how it should be done. Well done and congrats on the new webcam, I hope they stay maintained and stay live for many years to come

Cliff Top & Old Hunstanton

Starting from the Esplanade Gardens, you can explore the stunning clifftop scenery and read the story of St Edmund, Hunstanton’s most famous visitor and the very first patron saint of England. His story leads you to the ruins of St Edmund’s chapel, built in 1272 in his memory.

The stripes in Hunstanton's cliffs are caused by layers of different-coloured carrstone and chalk. Carrstone is the brown layer, and the red and white chalk is made from limestone. Limestone forms in warm tropical climates, which suggests that Hunstanton's climate was once warmer than it is today. The colour of the red chalk is due to iron staining.

Old Hunstanton Beach is home to picture-postcard rolling sand dunes and beach huts stretched along the wide sandy and dog-friendly beach. The Hunstanton Lifeboat Station at Old Hunstanton is the base for the local RNLI housing a B class lifeboat and hovercraft.


Coastguard Lookout

Originally built as a Marconi Wireless Station back in 1906, during WWII the building continued as a signal station and was visited by his Majesty King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1943.

Today, the former Coastguard Lookout is now a holiday cottage and offers guests a truly unique holiday experience in Hunstanton with unparalleled panoramic sea views.

Located next door to the old lighthouse and sitting on top of Hunstanton's famous striped cliffs, the Coastguard Lookout is less than a 5-minute walk to the beach and boasts a top floor lookout tower.

The property itself sleeps 4 people featuring a double bedroom and bunk beds. The bedrooms are all located on the first floor and come with that amazing sea view.
