Brancaster beach with it's wide expanse of golden sands is perfect for summer sandcastles or winter wanders. To keep visitors, staff, volunteers and local communities safe, we've made some changes, so your visit will be a bit different to what you're used to. We are currently experiencing very high visitor numbers to Brancaster Beach with the car park (not National Trust) reaching capacity most days. Please take a few minutes to plan your visit and find out what the changes are here.
How can I stay safe on the beach?
- Keep a watchful eye on your family
- Stay together and don't use inflatables in the sea
- In an emergency dial 999 for the Coastguard

Horses on Brancaster Beach
We do not recommend Brancaster Beach for horse riding or exercising of horses. The entrance to the beach is extremely narrow with many people choosing to sit there. This poses a risk to the safety of all beach users in this area, especially with the unprecedented number of visitors Brancaster Beach is experiencing at this time.
