Best Things To Do & Days Out In Norfolk

From the riverside beauty of The Broads, to historic places dating back more than 900 years, there’s a huge variety of fun things to do in Norfolk. 

 

Starting with Blickling Hall, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, and the legendary Norwich Castle, which has been a famous landmark since the time of the Romans, history buffs won’t have to wonder long what to do in Norfolk.   

If you feel more at ease in the countryside than at a royal palace, you should visit Holkham Hall & Woodland Play Area. Whether you’re enjoying hands-on fun at the farm, or spotting local deer on the wildlife trails, you'll have lots of memorable family days out there. 

Want to get off the beaten track? Dino-crazy kids will have a blast at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure, while BeWILDerwood will spark your imagination with an award winning, fantasy-themed forest adventure park with tree houses and zip wires. Beware - you may come across Crocklebogs, Snagglefangs and Thornyclods over there!
