I am a professional Wells Next The Sea photographer, providing a range of photography services. Wells Next The Sea on the North Norfolk Coast is a working harbour town and popular with tourists and day trippers. Despite its name Wells Next The Sea is no longer by the sea.
This is an area of the coast that is building up. It is contrast to the continuous eroding that takes place on the east Norfolk coast especially around the Happisburgh area.
The town of Wells Next The Sea is now over one mile from the sea. An embankment, a mile long was built to prevent the harbour from silting up and it provides a pleasant walk to the sea. If you do not wish to walk along the embankment there is a road running parallel to it and at the end a pay and display car park with toilets.
Wells beach has wide golden sands when the tide is out. Care must be taken if you cross the channels and sandbanks as the tide come in faster than you can run. Knowledge of the tides is essential and information is provided at the car park.
A 4 mile, 10.25 gauge-tracked railway takes you from Wells Next the Sea to Walsingham a place well known for its shrine. It is the longest railway track of this gauge in the world. The summer carnival is a very popular event. It starts and ends at The Buttlands and on carnival day there is entertainment all day. If you watch the carnival at the start near the Buttlands you can experience see it once again at the finish.
Wells Next The Sea has a wide sandy beach with spectacular beach huts. With miles of untouched sandy beaches the Holkham Nature Reserve stretches from Wells Next The Sea to Burnham Overy with rare habitats including salt marshes, sand dunes, pine woodland and beach. The reserve has diverse wildlife and is a fantastic place to go walking. At Holkham you can have lunch at the Victoria Hotel or take a snack at the Stables Café.
