The former home of BBC Springwatch, the 700-acre reserve is abundant with wildlife and thriving year-round natural woodland and wetland interest. Woodland walks, trails, bird hides, gardens and boardwalks present an amazing opportunity to immerse yourself in the beauty and charm of Norfolk’s Wensum Valley.
When it comes to seaside adventures on the northeast coast, there’s few to rival good ol’Great Yarmouth. A little calmer, and slightly more collected, than other nearby seaside towns, such as Skegness and Scarborough, Great Yarmouth is a fab choice of ‘staycation’ for families with small children.
We headed over to Gressenhall farm and workhouse for LEAF #OpenFarmSunday. A chance to learn more about farming in Norfolk and meet some local producers. There’s even a chance for young people to have a go at operating farm machinery as well as enjoying a tractor ride around the farm.
Towering Treetop Tangles is the park’s biggest, highest and most daring play structure to date. Reaching more than 30 feet high and covering more than 1,000 square feet, it is aimed at the slightly bigger, more adventurous kids.
It’s time to take a dive into the deep at Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary and become the newest recruits of the Jawsome Rangers and fulfil the mission of finding the missing shark teeth.
With Sunday being Mother’s Day, intu Chapelfield challenged me to spend the morning browsing the shopping centre stores armed with a £40 gift card to see what I could treat myself to. Here lies the problem, I don’t shop well for myself. As I’m walking around I can often spot things for others, but narrowing things down to what I would like to purchase is somewhat of a challenge in itself.
What better way to kick start the February half term holidays than a family day. ROARR Dinosaur Adventure had kindly invited us along to see how much the park had changed in the three-plus years it has been since we last visited. Located in Lenwade, Norfolk you can have a little fun getting there depending on which way your sat nav takes you. But it’s worth the venture down the country lanes to find the dinosaurs.
On the east coast of England, Norfolk is a beautiful British county which offers high-quality family attractions, authentic waterways, and captivating coastlines. Sitting north-east of London and Cambridge, it makes for a brilliant school-holiday staycation for families looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life for a few days.
