Webcams offer an incredible opportunity for potential visitors to get a taste of the wide range of experiences that the Norfolk has to offer – from nature lovers looking to spot Peregrines at Norwich Cathedral, to exploring the Broads and enjoying Norfolk’s idyllic scenery from the comfort of your armchair. Webcams also provide a great way to see if the tide’s in or out and check the surf.
One of the beautiful things about webcams is how viewers can enjoy the changing of the seasons across multiple locations. While most people are likely to visit during the summer, the breath-taking natural beauty of the Broads during autumn and winter should not be missed.
With so many located around the region, there is sure to be a Norfolk webcam to suit every interest. We’ve collected some of our favourite webcams for viewing the scenery, people-watching and enjoying the peaceful Norfolk countryside:
Near Sheringham & Cromer
Sheringham’s seafront webcam gives viewers a taste of the outstanding views that can be discovered walking on this charming beach and long promenades, which are part of the Norfolk Coastal Path.

A pair of webcams provide a views of Marine Parade of what Great Yarmouth seafront has to offer. The first focuses on the golden mile of seaside entertainments and the second shows views to the north and south of Central Beach. There’s now a third webcam on this page showing Gorleston bandstand, promenade and beach.
(Horning Sailing Club)
Horning Sailing Club currently provide six webcams to deliver live coverage of the Three Rivers Race, one of the most noted sailing events on the Broads which is usually held on the first weekend in June.
In the heart of the broads, Potter Heigham is located on the River Thurne. This webcam is located on a 14th century bridge in the village and is located next to a marina where holidaymakers can hire boats to explore the broads.
Image feed only. Low quality.
Blakeney & nearby
(Glaven Valley, image feed.)
Located at The White Horse Hotel, this webcam is useful for those planning to visit the Blakeney marshes and enjoy some of the finest views in the region. As well as offering a beautiful view itself, the webcam will help visitors to check on tide movements and the weather before setting out.
(Port and Harbour of Wells-next-the-Sea)
This dynamic webcam switches between multiple views, allowing viewers to enjoy the sight of boats coming and going from Wells Harbour. The harbour is thought to be around 600 years old and now welcomes a diverse range of boats.
(Burnham Overy Boathouse)
(Hawk and Owl Trust, seasonal only)
This seasonal webcam is ideal for bird-watchers. Thanks to the Hawk and Owl Trust, a nesting platform was installed on the spire of Norwich Cathedral in 2011. Due to the platform’s height and a non-intervention policy, the peregrines are monitored by cameras, allowing viewers to watch the birds nesting and hoping to see eggs hatching in the spring.
Visit the Hawk and Owl Trust website and look under Live Cameras to see other webcams currently available.
We don’t operate the webcams above.
The operators endeavour to keep their webcams online as much as possible but occasionally there are outages ranging from a few hours to many days.
If you notice the camera is not functioning correctly, it is not necessary to notify us. But if you notice any webcam which appears to be permanently unavailable, let us know and we’ll consider removing the link.
Thank you. 🙂
