The reason we went to Horsey Windpump was because I like photography and my husband is a wheel chair user so I thought it may be an opportunity to get some atypical photos of Norfolk without having to trek very far. The photos we found online during our research were all of the pump with sales and everything looking ground.... More

This is closed so there isn't much to do there. I thought there might to a walk round the Broads but there isn't really. Worth a look if you're passing. Otherwise, leave it!

This was one of several points of interest on a 20-mile circular bike ride in lovely autumn weather and the old wind pump is a commanding building in an attractive spot by the staithe (old wharf, or landing stage). There's an impressively ambitious restoration of the cap, sails and machinery going on (£1/3 million) but meanwhile there's little to see... More

This is one of our most frequently visited attractions when holidaying on the broads and we love every visit. Good parking and nice refreshment kiosk. The wind pump is currently in the final stages of restoration and a lot of work has been done in and around the pump. Great walks around the dyke to Horsey Mere and the beach.... More

To quote a Greek friend - "Be good when it finish". It is unfair to erect tourist road-signs to an out-of-the-way "attraction" which is neither available or open. I have no doubt that when it is open, it will be a fascinating place, but, at the time of my visit, there was literally nothing to see - nothing like the... More

Pleasant area to walk and learn about the history of the windpipe and the ongoing reservations. Sadly due to the work been carried out we could not go inside. However, it was interesting to find out about the history and what is happening in the future. We had a freshly made sandwich from the cafe and a pleasant sit in... More

It would be nice. But we went especially to see the windmill.buf the sails are down and scaffolding up.so you can't get near. And the the shop is not worthwhile. When work is Finished it will be fine. But if only going to see the windmill. Not worth the drive.
