Details

Horsey Windpump is an iconic building with a fascinating past and the perfect gateway to experience the connection between man and nature. Standing sentinel over the mere and surrounding Broadland landscape, a climb to the top is rewarded with beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding countryside an opportunity not to be missed.

Having been closed for extensive repairs and restoration since 2015, we are proud to be able to reopen this historic building again in 2018. Having been stood still and silent for 75 years since 1943 when she was struck by lightning, she has been brought back to life and is now complete with a winding cap and turning sails bringing a whole new visitor experience to this wonderful Grade II* Listed Building.

On site is also a tea room selling light refreshments, drinks, ice creams and a range of gifts and souvenirs. With outdoor seating available, you can relax and watch the Windpump’s sails go round or the world go by. Indoor seating is also available. Why not fuel up before exploring the surrounding estate or visiting nearby Horsey Beach.

Horsey, where the Broads meet the coast, is unrivalled as a place providing views into this mysterious broadland landscape of Norfolk. This remote location is secluded and famed for its internationally important wildlife, from the over-wintering wildfowl frequenting Horsey Mere to the Swallowtail butterfly, the very essence of a summer on the Broads. A great place for walking and bird watching, throughout the seasons.
