With summer upon us and restrictions continuing to ease across Norfolk, day trips are very much back on.

But, where is your favourite place to go?

Reporter Aaron McMillan asked people in Fakenham where their favourite place to go in Norfolk is during the summer months.

Judy Hall, 71, from Cambridge, said: “Wells-next-the-sea - we are actually heading back there right now.

"The people are so friendly everywhere you go. I have been coming to Wells ever since I was 11, we brought the children there with us on holiday. It's a special place for us with a lot of happy memories.”

"We used to love going to the marshes there as well when the children were younger, but for me, it has the best walks.”
