Where Are the Best Places To See Christmas Lights in Norfolk?

We are very lucky in Norfolk to have such an amazing array of places to go and see Christmas Lights and Illuminated Trails, plus, nearly every Norfolk Town has a brilliant Lights Switch On during November and December.

The only problem is that they do sell out quite quickly, so if you are thinking of visiting any Norfolk Christmas Light events, make sure you don’t leave it until the last minute.
