Details: For this group event, we'll be visiting the beautiful North Norfolk seaside town of Wells next the Sea. To start the event, we'll be taking a boat tour (booked for 11am) with Wells Harbour Tours. The hour long trip will take us from the quay to the open sea, with incredible views back towards the beach and row of famous beach huts. Details on the boat tour can be found here > www.wellharbourtours.com - we'll be sharing the boat with others and although we'll be free to take photographs, this section of the event will be guided exclusively by our skipper.
On our return (at approx. 12 noon), we'll take a walk along the bustling quayside to photograph the various moored boats and granary building. After this, there will be some free time to grab some lunch in one of Wells many cafes, pubs or restaurants.
After lunch we'll take a walk along beach road to the pine trees, beautiful sandy beach and incredible row of huts to photograph them up close.
Walks are aimed at beginner and hobbyist photographers, once we arrive at our different points of interest, rather than everyone taking the same photographs, you'll be free to wander and capture images in your own creative style. I'll be on hand to look at your images, guide, answer questions and offer advice on composition and camera controls. All camera types are welcome (smartphones included).
Car Parking: Yes - Multiple locations in Wells town. As the walk will end at the beach, it is suggested to park in the beach car park - please note however that this is a 20 minute walk (along Beach Road) to our meeting place on the quay. Sat Nav Postcode for the beach car park is: NR23 1DR
Accessible via Public Transport: Yes - please email if you require specific bus times or directions from your location.
