The coastal village of Snettisham is on the north west Norfolk coastline, although the centre of the village is over a mile from the seashore. Bordering the shingle beach are caravans and holiday chalets, popular especially during the summer months. At the centre of the village is the market place where you will find a number of shops and houses built mainly in the local carrstone. These Buildings are golden brown in colour and are known locally as 'gingerbread houses'. The RSPB' s Snettisham reserve on The Wash is the UK's most important estuary for wildlife, and visitors can explore the shingle beach, mudflats and saltmarsh in the search for birds, plants and rare invertebrates.
