    EVERY DAY AND NIGHT I FEEL CLOSER TO MY MUM AND DAD WISH I WAS WITH YOU X hUNSTANTON THE BEST PLACE TO BE

  • Steve 17 days ago
    yes I remember those boats and as a child went on them many times. Also I can remember a small zoo underneath the arcade. It was only there for 2/3 years.

  • Rosie 17 days ago
    Wouldn’t it be great to get a pier back again. It can be done, and lm sure it would very well used, there was a small roundabout with sailing boats and they were in water, l thought it was magical

  • Steve 17 days ago
    I worked on the pier during the summer 1972. Mr Harris was my boss . His son Norman who looked like he was in his 50’s really ran everything. I was on the toll and every morning I would walk along the pier to make sure there was no litter and I would always take a moment at the end of the pier and take in the vista. On a sunny day when the sea was calm it felt very special standing there by myself. If only it was possible now. Should they rebuild it, Yes, but the council should take a look a Southwolds and take in any mistakes they made.

  • Steve 17 days ago
    Sorry I did not make myself clear, by 1972 she no longer had her stall. She most likely retired.

  • Marie 18 days ago
    Thank you for the update, Steve. I didn’t know that she passed away such a long time ago.

  • Steve 18 days ago
    Yes Marie she is long gone. She was older than my Mother and she would be 102 years old. I worked on the toll on the pier in 1972 and I know she had already gone by then.

    Glad to see another web cam in Sunny Hunny is online, love watching the web cams from Mansfield..... it's like you can be there when you can't be there if that makes sense lol

  • Adie 18 days ago
    There goes the Wash Monster on the 30 mins cliff tour……can almost hear it’s engine and it’s horn blowing

  • Marie 19 days ago
    Steve – I expect that lady is long gone. She always seemed to be there and was always cheerful. Rick – I watched that when it was first uploaded to YouTube. It is one of the best videos I have ever seen on YT.

  • Jaybee 19 days ago
    John – just watched the short film. Great. Thanks for the information.

  • Rosie 19 days ago
    Its a good little film john ,it rings those memories flooding back .it is good that hunstanto hasn’t been spoilt like many other seaside towns, but it would be lovely to gave a pier again,

  • Rick 19 days ago
    I would recommend watching ‘Ghost Train, Kings Lynn to Hunstanton’ on youtube for anyone interested. It was only added a few months back but absolutely worth a watch.

  • The boy dick 19 days ago
    I think hunstanton needs more indoor attractions for families on holiday when the weather is cold and wet anybody agree

  • Steve 19 days ago
    The lady who took the weight, height and vitality came from Lincolnshire for the summer season. My mother would have a long chat with her every year as I nagged her for a go for 6d.

  • John 20 days ago
    For those that don’t know, the little film “John Betjeman goes by train: Kings Lynn to Hunstanton” is an interesting watch. Filmed in 1962, it ends with views of the old station.

  • Steve 20 days ago
    I can just remember steam trains coming into Hunstanton. Followed by class 31´s and 37´s. But more so I remember the DMU´s as My mother often took me on the train to Lynn and I would try and sit behind the driver. I can still at 63 years old see in my head all the controls and every bend and stations on that line to Lynn.

  • Marie 20 days ago
    Rick – we should start a campaign to reinstate the pier! Boy dick – yes Cambridge to Hunstanton straight through. Rosie – the compartments were amazing. What a shame there is nothing like it now. Does anyone recall before the new breakers were put on the beach? The beach was much lower and ladders were there to be able to get down onto the sand. At Heacham the beach was 6ft or more lower than it is now. What about the lady on the seafront near to where the KitKat used to be. She had a wooden turquoise kiosk and would check your height, weight and vitality for 6d. Gosh I am old! LOL

  • Rosie 20 days ago
    Yes i do, the train had a corridor and compartments to sit in. The excitement when we pulled into hunstanton was huge and it was just a short walk across to the beach for a day filled with sea , sand sunshine and warm sandwiches, finished with an ice cream, bliss

  • Boy dick 20 days ago
    I remember the railway station it was quite a big station and very busy you could catch a train in Cambridge to hunstanton with out changing trains. Also can anyone remember South lynn railway station in King’s Lynn you could get a train to all most any where in Norfolk from there

  • Rick 20 days ago
    Alas I am too young to remember either Marie but I have always felt thats the one thing missing from Hunstanton, a pier. I am in the area every few weeks (not today for obvious reasons haha) and I think a pier would be the icing on the cake. Have a great day everyone

  • Marie 20 days ago
    Does anyone remember the railway station where Azams is now? What a shame that the pier was never rebuilt. Cherished memories . . .

  • Ros 20 days ago

  • Steve 21 days ago
    Many the time during the early 60`s do I remember sitting on those steps with my mother eating a bag of chips while we waited for my dad to come out of the Golden Lion where he worked.

  • Ros 21 days ago

    Hunny is certainly leading the way with it’s webcams. Shame all coastal towns are not keeping up. Southwold, Aldeburgh? Nah, stick with good old Hunstanton. I check in every day, especially before a visit from home near Ely.

  • Wendy 1 month ago
    It’s lovely to see Sunny Hunny while sitting at home waiting for our holiday there in 4 weeks. Sunny Hunny is my piece of heaven. Can’t wait to see the sunsets.

    Really great webcam! . . . maybe a slightly higher angle to crop out the cars in the foreground a little would be better then also saving the need for the pixels?

    Rosie the statue is Henry Styleman Le Strange, investor and primary creator of Hunstanton as a seaside resort. He invested heavily in the area in the mid 1800’s, including the railway line but unfortunately passed away aged 47 before he got to see the thriving success Hunstanton would become.

The Green, Hunstanton

Overlooking the sea, The Green in Hunstanton faces west making it a popular spot with visitors to enjoy fish and chips while watching one of Hunstanton’s famous sunsets.

Its natural theatre auditorium effect means The Green hosts many events throughout the year, including in the past the BBC Radio 1 Roadshows during the 1980s and 1990s.

The lower green is the site of the former pier which was destroyed in 1978 during heavy storms, while the bandstand next door is the stage for many performances by musicians and other key events.

Standing proud on the upper green is the statue of Henry le Strange who is credited to building Hunstanton into the Victorian seaside resort it is today. His original carrstone buildings are still in use including the grade II listed Golden Lion Hotel, built in 1846.


Hunstanton Town Hall

The Town Hall is a magnificent grade II listed building, built by George Skipper in 1896, that sits at the very top of The Green.

Home to Hunstanton Town Council, the Town Hall is available to hire for events such as exhibitions and fairs, meetings, seminars, birthday parties, christenings and funeral wakes. The chamber is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and the main hall can accommodate up to 200 guests (standing). Facilities include a professional grade kitchen, bar and stage.

Hunstanton’s Town Council consists of 17 elected councillors that are responsible for a number of local issues such as allotments, bus shelters, community centres, help for local organisations as well as consultation on neighbourhood planning.
