At Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse you can enjoy a fascinating journey through the story of rural Norfolk. With a thrilling woodland adventure playground, a historic workhouse, traditional farm, and many indoor displays, Gressenhall is the perfect setting for the perfect day out, whatever the weather!

When you visit the farm, you will see hens running loose in the farmyard, horses working in the fields, and there are piglets galore! And it's a real working farm where each season shows a different face of farm life.

There is plenty to keep the kids amused too, such as collecting animal stamps on the farm trail and going river dipping for mini-beasts. The fantastic woodland playground is a world of treehouses, walkways and adventure.

There are acres and acres of idyllic countryside, with peaceful woodland to walk through and riversides to walk along. Take a cart ride across the fields, discover the country trails, enchanting gardens, and the historic orchard set in a timeless and unspoilt landscape.

Reviews

Lovely place with lots to do for all ages 5 out of 5 stars

Lovely place to visit. We got museum passes which are great value so we visit regularly. Even toddlers can enjoy a trip here. Lovely big outside play area with sections for different ages. The farm is great and normally runs free tractor rides and sometimes horse and cart rides too. It has a beautiful walk and stamp trail. And of course there's the workhouse museum to explore. They run lots of special events throughout the year too.
