The county of Norfolk lies in Eastern England. Its northern and eastern boundaries are the North Sea and to the northwest, The Wash. Norfolk is a largely rural county and well-known for its network of rivers and lakes known as the Broads. This area is not a national park although it has a similar status to a national park. Norfolk's low-lying land and easily eroded cliffs, many of which are composed of chalk and clay, make it vulnerable to weathering by the sea with the coast between Kelling and Lowestoft Ness in Suffolk the most at risk. Norfolk is a popular tourist area with several major attractions. There are many seaside resorts, with some having Britain's finest beaches including those at Great Yarmouth, Cromer and Holkham. In addition to protected area of the Broads, there is also the Norfolk Coast AONB. Many areas of the coast are wild bird reserves. Tow national trails, The Norfolk Coast Path and The Peddar's Way.
