This restful little Victorian resort offers 2 distinct features: it is the one and only coastal town in East Anglia that faces westwards, and additionally it features roughly one mile of unique multi-coloured cliffs, which stand roughly 60 ft high. Beneath the cliffs the rock has fallen away in the form of great boulders, and beyond the cliffs is a superb sandy beach, where wave-eroded rocks are on view at low tide, with a number of shimmering rock pools, ideal for kids to explore. Nowadays you will find reminders the towns' Victorian origins, for example the large green, the promenade and the gorgeous esplanade gardens.

The new resort grew up at the end of the 1800s, following the arrival of the train in 1862, south of the existing village nowadays known as Old Hunstanton. The landowners at this time were the well-off Le Stranges , and it was this family who were largely in control of the growth of the town. Above the cliffs you can find the ancient remnants of St Edmund's Chapel, at the area where Edmund, King of the East Angles, is thought to have landed in 850AD. A stones throw away you'll find a white-painted lighthouse, which was built in 1966, but no longer used as a lighthouse.

High Street, Hunstanton - - 1458719The eight hundred and thirty foot Hunstanton Pier opened on Easter Sunday, in eighteen seventy. 1882 saw the initiation of the paddle steamer service across the Wash to the new Skegness Pier. In the 1890s a pavilion was added, but was eventually damaged by a fire in 1939 and was never re-built. After the Second World War, the pier played host to a roller-skating centre and a tiny zoo. A mini steam railway at one time ran the pier, though it was dismantled in the 50s.

The seaward end later fell into disuse though, at the land section, a two-storey amusement building (replacing a run down arcade and cafe) was built in 1964. In January 1978, a bad storm wrecked the majority of the pier and the local authority demolished a section at the end just a few weeks later. The land end arcade survived, although, in 2002, the whole thing, and also the remains of the pier, were destroyed by a fire. Presently, a brand new bowling alley and arcade sits on the site, yet though the structure is still noted by residents as the 'Pier', there's effectively nothing left of what was previously the famous landmark. You will discover 2 concrete ramps from the promenade onto the beach, one, which is for sailing vessels, is north of the pier, the other, for powerboats, is along the southern section of the promenade. There are powerboating and sailing clubs, and furthermore certain water-skiing championships take place there. The south beach is safeguarded by groynes, submerged at high tide and denoted by baskets on tall poles. The sea fishing is also not bad here, with dab, flounder and bass in plentiful supply. You can take a boat trip to Seal Island, a sandbank sitting in out in The Wash where you might find seals basking at low tide. The reality is The Wash boasts the largest population of common seals of anywhere on the globe.

Hunstanton's Historic Past: Hunstanton is a Victorian resort town, originally named New Hunstanton to distinguish it from the neighbouring traditional village from where ti got its name. The new town has for quite a while outstripped the village in both the number of people and size.

The previous settlement of Hunstanton is now referred to as Old Hunstanton, in all likelihood named after the River Hun that runs into the sea east of Old Hunstanton village. The village of Old Hunstanton is considered to have prehistoric origins, with signs of a Neolithic community stumbled upon close by in The early 70's. The long derelict St. Edmund's Chapel, was built in the late thirteenth century and is now a Grade II listed building, and is found at the end of the Roman Peddar's Way.

In the eighteen forties, the leading member of the well-off Le Strange dynasty, Henry Styleman Le Strange (1815-1862), made the decision to build the area south of Old Hunstanton as a sea bathing resort. Henry convinced several interested investors to finance the construction of a railway track from the town to King's Lynn. He suspected that a railway line would lure in tourists and visitors to Hunstanton. It became a great success (the Lynn and Hunstanton Railway grew to become one of the most successful railway organizations in the country). Le Strange became a director of the railway company but in 1862 he died aged only forty seven, and it was his son who reaped the results of his foresight.

A hint to Le Strange's intentions came about in the 1840's, when he relocated the historic village cross from its old position to the planned location of the new town and in eighteen forty eight the initial building (The Royal Hotel) was built. Standing in isolation for a number of years, with views over the sea and the green, it was named "Le Strange's Folly" by residents. The Le Strange family for sure had the last laugh because the new vacation resort was eventually developed and became a huge success.
