We have a very special early Christmas gift for you - an exclusive photographic exhibition of Norfolk and other mysterious places by celebrated local photographer David Morris. Delight in a hearty, home-cooked family meal in our gallery restaurant while admiring the stunning photographic works adorning the walls.
Sea Horses & Other Stories comprises a series of remarkable images, together with the unique stories behind them, from the Household Cavalry on their yearly jaunt up to Holkham, to the result of a daring paddle in a canoe up a quiet Norfolk waterway. David prides himself on exploring the places that are a bit out of the way, and sometimes a little tricky to reach.
His iconic photographs of the Household Cavalry at Holkham impressed the colonel of the regiment so much that he was commissioned to photograph their annual Christmas card. So, even the Queen will have displayed his striking Norfolk images on her mantelpiece! If theres a print that catches your eye, you can even make a purchase and take it home with you, perhaps as the perfect Christmas present for someone special? To read the full story Please Click here

|The King William Hosts Carris Trophy Golf Talent! (posted 30/08/16)|
The Carris Trophy (British Boys Championship) was held on the manicured golf links of Hunstanton Golf Club from 19/7 to 22/7. With 160 of the best young golfers from the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Belgium competing for the prestigious Carris Trophy over 4 days, the quality of golf produced by these young golfers was truly outstanding.
The King William was delighted to host 3 aspiring young golfers during their time at Hunstanton.
Pleasingly, all three players made the 'cut' with the top 60 players progressing to the 3rd and 4th days. From Lille, France we welcomed Mathieu Caron and his father Christoph. With scores of 74, 76, 78 and 74 Mathieu finished a highly creditable 50th. In 15th position was a young Englishman from Swindon, Jake Bolton, with his father Mark. Jake shot 71, 77, 71, 70 and was delighted to hear that he had been selected for England's forthcoming Under 18's Tour to Canada. Congratulations Jake.
Topping the lot young Oscar Teiffel from Gothenberg, Sweden, started the final round in joint first position and ended the tournament in third place. On his bag was his younger brother whilst his father Peter walked all 4 rounds - sometimes in the presence of Nick and our elder Labrador, Max. A fantastic performance by Oscar with scores of 71, 69, 68 and 72 leaving him on 8 Under Par for the Tournament.
It was an absolute pleasure to hoste three such talented and modest young golfers (and their dad's) . I hope that one day we can welcome them back to The King William and Hunstanton GC. Names to look out for !!
