Norfolk Victorian Seaside Resorts & Fishing Villages
- Weybourne

At one time Weybourne was known as a likely spot for smuggling. Its shingle beach dropped steeply into the sea allowing large boats to edge close to the shore. It also made Weybourne a potential landing site for an invasion, which accounts for military relics in current day Weybourne. Like many other Norfolk coastal villages it was primarily a fishing village until the late Victorian years when railways brought the holidaymakers. Weybourne benefitted for a time but only moderately, which has meant that the village has retained its charm and remains a pleasant and popular destination. A particular attraction is its railway station, built a mile outside the village,it is part of the heritage Poppy Line and sees steam and vintage diesel trains pass through regularly during the summer.
