Pirates, here's some inspiration on where to go for a winter getaway with amazing wildlife-watching potential. Visit the seal colony at Blakeney Point -- with Grey seal pubs being born November until January. Get up early and watch the geese leave for warmer regions from Snettisham on The Wash. Long coastal walks, cosy pubs with log fires and Norfolk mussle dishes -- it's all in the mix here.

Duke's Head Hotel is located in a Georgian townhouse in the heart of the historic market market town of Kings Lynn. You'll easily recognise your hotel as it's got a powder-blue façade. The deal includes stays in a double room with breakfast. Wi-fi and toiletries are provided.
The hotel is only a short walk from the River Great Ouse and the town centre. Seek out the George Vancouver Statue outside the Maritime Museum, erected at the quay to pay tribute to the brilliant naval officer and explorer who sailed alongside Captain Cook. Or wander the 18th century park and trails of The Walk, close to Red Mount Chapel (built in the late 1400s with scenic views).
