If you have grown up in Norfolk, then you will know there are just some things that everyone has done in their lives.

From visiting the sandy beaches to an amusement park, here is a list of the seven things every person has done in the county as chosen by our readers.

1. Ride a rollercoaster at Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach

Yarmouth's Pleasure Beach is a well-known family attraction, and every child or parent will have enjoyed a ride on the snails or the wooden rollercoaster.

Reader Aaron Gilbey said: "Everyone must have been on the Pleasure Beach rollercoaster, it may look fragile and rickety but I went on it with my friend and we laughed so hard we started crying."

2. Day out on the Norfolk Broads

The Norfolk Broads is one of the county's most visited beauty spots, with plenty of pubs and wildlife thrown in.

James Peck said: "If you've been to the Broads, you will have been to 'Roys of Wroxham' which isn't even in Wroxham - it's actually in Hoveton."

Christine Burke said that everyone will have been "on a boat trip on the broads" at some point while living in Norfolk.

3. Crabbing at Wells

Wells-next-the-Sea is one of north Norfolk's most visited destinations and during the busy summer months, it's common to see people flock to the harbour for a spot of crabbing.

Norfolk is known for its tasty crustaceans and many restaurants and chefs spotlight the locally-caught cuisine in their dishes.

Rocky Bottoms in Cromer, a crab and lobster restaurant, was featured on an episode of Bill Nighy's new Norfolk and Suffolk series showcasing the best of East Anglia.

4.  Eat fish and chips at the coast

There won't be many Norfolk natives who haven't sampled some of the finest fish and chip shops dotted along the coast.

Rosemary Mulgrew has fond memories of "eating fish and chips in Wells Quay".

French's in Wells-next-the-sea was voted among the best in the country earlier this year and if you've tried the shop's classic British dishes, it's easy to tell why.

5. Been to the Royal Norfolk Show

You'll either have visited the Royal Norfolk Show as a student, parent, stall holder, or farmer, but almost everyone who lives here will have enjoyed a trip to the Norfolk Showground at least once.

Louise Boudicca said she has "enjoyed it since I was a child" although Joy Corbett was a bit less enthusiastic, suggesting that "you only need to go once" to the large event.

6. Visited Norwich Castle

Many locals will fondly remember visiting this Norwich institution when they were younger.

Claire Burgess reminisced on "pressing buttons in the bird exhibit, getting scared by the polar bear, and throwing coins down the well".

The Castle is now under refurbishment and has applied for an alcohol licence to serve drinks on its premises.

7. A trip to the beach

People living in Norfolk are lucky to have access to some of the most picturesque coastlines.

Zoe Walters said everyone has spent "a small fortune in the arcades on one of the seafronts" and Kathy Carter has fond memories of "cockling at Hunstanton in the 1960s".

The county's beaches are also known for their abundance of wildlife, with Carolyn Fitzgerald saying that "seeing the seals at Blakeney Point" is a rite of passage for those who grew up here.
