Blakeney was the third most important port in Norfolk during the 15th century and the legacy of trade and rich merchants on the built heritage is evident. Explore the remains of a prosperous merchant’s house, the Guildhall, located just back from the quay (left image). Originally the Guild of Fishmongers HQ, the building also served as a temporary mortuary for shipwrecked sailors during WWI.
Run up the adjacent hill for sweeping views out over the marsh. Visit the church of St Nicholas, set well back from the quay with a commanding view out over the village.
