My Norfolk – Anna Park

Anna founded her eponymous womenswear boutique in 1994 in Burnham Market and went on to build up a revered chain across East Anglia and London. ANNA is now one of the most successful womenswear retailers in the UK due to a combination of beautiful clothes and exemplary customer service.

Favourite shop

Gurneys, I love fish. Gurneys sell the best fish, I stop by every weekend for our weekly fix of fish and gossip.

Favourite eatery

At home with friends. Failing that, I love eating in
the bar at The White Horse in Brancaster Staithe.

Favourite walk

From Holkham car park through the woods and around Wells finishing off coming through Holkham Estate back to the car… quick drink at the end at The Victoria.

Favourite beach

Scolt Head Island, we either walk out at low tide on the cockle path or if we’re feeling lazy we jump on the ferry at Overy.

Favourite memory

Successfully completing the Norfolk Superhero Challenge six years ago with my friend Nick, we received the ‘Super Snail’ trophy… Best day ever!.

Reason to visit

All of the above I would say. (possibly not for the superhero but a must if you fancy a swim, kayak, cycle and run!)

Best of all

Friends, Norfolk folk are generous, warm, funny and loyal… forget the rumours.
