Nothing quite prepares you for the sight that you’re faced with once over the dunes and onto the viewing platform which has been specially set up for the seal pup viewing during the winter months of late October through to February.

We will walk on the footpath from the National Trust Horsey Wind Pump site, a well-trodden walk which takes in fields, rushes, flat meadow and marshland and finally we reach the beach, (this takes about 35-40 minutes).

From the viewing platform, we can watch the seals and their pups for as long as we like. We will continue to walk away from the viewing platform along the top of the dunes marvelling at the incredible sight of all these seals lying on the beach. All you can see for miles is this incredible stretch of sand, interspersed with large boulders for groynes and seals. Seals, seals and more seals!

It really did blow my mind to see these wonderful creatures in their own natural habitat, just being left to get on with giving birth without any interference from humans. The best thing I loved about it was that there was no health and safety involved, apart from the regulatory signs warning you about “Caution, soft sand” – where does that one fit in on a beach!!!!! Totally back to mother nature on this quiet beach in Norfolk.

I would suggest you wrap up warm if you’re coming to see the seals at Horsey, but any weather will do! I went on a cold and blustery day, but it certainly didn’t detract from my pure enjoyment of this amazing scene. There are also wardens on hand to answer any questions, especially during the busy months of December and January.
