Top Things to do in the Norfolk School Holidays

You’ve got the Norfolk school holiday dates all lined up for you, now we’ve selected 5 of the best attractions in Norfolk to get you inspired for your family day out.

1. Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure, Lenwade

Huge adventure play park brimming with dinosaurs (more than 110 of them!) - if that doesn’t sound exciting, we don’t know what does! Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure is suitable for the whole family and features outdoor play areas, enormous slides, animal zone, ball pits, a splash zone with 31 water features and lots more. There are enough action-packed activities to keep you coming back for more over and over again.

If you’re planning a visit during the Norfolk school holiday, be sure to check what’s on at Roarr. The park is famous for throwing award-winning family events throughout the year.

2. Sea Life Centre Great Yarmouth, Great Yarmouth

If your kids are fascinated by the weird and wonderful creatures of the underwater world, you should definitely visit SEA LIFE Centre Great Yarmouth. Walking under the underwater tunnel, surrounded by all sorts of curious marine creatures just swimming about never fails to amaze.

Needless to say, getting up close to real sharks and penguins is always a favourite with the younger visitors. Oh, and the Rock Pool is popular too; it’s the area where your little ones can touch starfish and other shallow water creatures. With feeds, talks and educational shows available daily, SEA LIFE won’t disappoint no matter when you decide to go.

3. High Lodge Thetford Forest Centre, Thetford

Wondering what to do during the longer, warmer parts of the Norfolk school holidays? Go out and explore High Lodge Thetford Forest - from woodland play, to a simple family walk in the forest, to a picnic in the wild, it’s a great place to escape the city and to forget your school and work worries.

If you’ve got younger kids in the family, you should send your little explorers on a quest to complete the Zog the Dragon adventure trail. It’s going to make discovering High Lodge Thetford Forest that much more fun for the little ones. Also, the kids are bound to make a stop at the nature play area for some sliding, climbing and balancing.

4. BeWILDerwood, Wroxham

If you already know the tale of Swampy, the adorable Marsh Boggle from the popular kids’ novel “A Boggle at Bewilderwood”, you need no invitation to go to BeWILDerwood. However, how do we describe BeWILDerwood to someone who hasn’t been there?

Well, it’s the place to go, if you fancy an outlandish adventure in an enchanted forest, inhabited by Crocklebog, Snagglefang, Thornyclod and other fantastic creatures. Zip wires, tree houses, boat tours and special event like fancy dress parties, puppet shows and storytelling await you daily. If that’s the norm at BeWILDerwood, just imagine all the excitement that ensues when the special holiday events are on!

5. Pettitts Adventure Park, Reedham

Pettitts Animal Adventure Park is yet another Norfolk attraction that you are very likely to find yourself revisiting, simply because there are heaps of things to do. Let’s start with the animals - raccoons, lemurs, alpacas, meerkats and miniature horses are only but a few of the furry residents you’ll meet there. The kids will get to pet and feed them, as well. Then, there are fairground rides, playgrounds, live shows, character meet & greets and even a 1/2 mile miniature railway to ride on.

Pettits Adventure Park is open all year round, except during the winter, so you’ll get to spend many unforgettable school holidays there.
