North Norfolk is blessed with many landmarks that can be our favourite to visit.

From the pier at Cromer to abbeys and parks, we are lucky that we have so many great places we can show off to friends coming to the region, or somewhere we like to go and enjoy the sights.

Reporter Aaron McMillan asked people in Fakenham what their favourite landmark in North Norfolk is.
