Deep History Coast
The Visitor Centre underwent renovations in 2020 to install the Deep History Coast Gateway Discovery Centre.
Did you know that Norfolk used to sit at the edge of a vast plain connecting Britain to mainland Europe, on which roamed giant deer, scimitar-toothed cats, lions, monkeys, mammoths, and hominin (human) species.
