Weather in Norfolk UK: Embrace the Elements and Make the Most of Your Trip!

When it comes to the weather in the UK in general, there's one thing you can be sure of - it's unpredictable! Having moved from London to Norfolk two years ago, I was worried that summers would be amazing but winters would be harsh and inhospitable and that we'd be stuck in the house unable to enjoy the beauty of Norfolk like we once did in the warmer months. But how wrong I was! Autumn and Winter are now my favourite seasons here. The beaches and seaside towns clear and you're left with the indescribable beauty of Norfolk all to yourself (and very little rain - which is a huge win for me)!

It does take a bit of planning and a positive attitude, but in Norfolk, you really can have a fantastic time no matter what the weather brings. Here's what you can expect throughout the year, and how you can make the most of your trip.


Spring in Norfolk is a magical time, with the flowers blooming and the countryside bursting with life. The weather is mild, with temperatures averaging around 10-15°C (50-59°F), and only very occasional rain showers. But don't let the rain put a damper on your plans! Embrace it and take a stroll through one of the many nature reserves, or visit a quaint village and duck into a cozy pub for a pint.


Summer in Norfolk is a true delight, with long sunny days and warm temperatures averaging around 20-25°C (68-77°F). Perfect for exploring the stunning coastline, soaking up the sun on one of the many award-winning beaches, crabbing at Blakeney Quay, or taking a boat trip to see the seals at Blakeney Point or Horsey. And if the weather does take a turn, you can always visit one of the many museums, art galleries, or historic landmarks that Norfolk has to offer.


Autumn in Norfolk is a feast for the senses, with the leaves turning golden and the air crisp and cool. Temperatures start to drop, averaging around 10-15°C (50-59°F), and you can expect occasional rain and fog. But don't let that stop you from exploring the stunning countryside, taking a walk along the beach or around the grounds of the many National Trust properties in the area or visiting a pumpkin patch to get in the Halloween spirit.


Winter in Norfolk is a time for snuggling up, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to do! The weather can be chilly, with temperatures averaging around 0-5°C (32-41°F), and occasional snowfall. But if you're feeling brave (and I would hugely recommend it), you can go for a brisk walk on the beach, or take a trip to see the stunning Christmas lights in Norwich. And of course, there's nothing better than cozying up in a quaint cottage with a hot cup of tea and a good book.

Why Norfolk?

While the weather in Norfolk can sometimes be unpredictable, it's also what makes the region so special. The stunning countryside, charming villages, and picturesque coastline are all part of the magic of Norfolk, no matter what the weather. And with so many indoor and outdoor activities to choose from, there's something for everyone. So embrace the elements, pack your raincoat just in case, and head to Norfolk for a truly unforgettable trip!
