Best Things To Do & Days Out In Norwich

You better be ready for adventure because there are lots of awesome things to do in Norwich on your next day out with the kids!

Probably the most famous landmark in the area is Norwich Castle, which was built by the Normans as a Palace over 900 years ago and now is a family friendly museum and art gallery. Children will love going back through time discovering treasures left behind by the Normans and finding out all about East Anglia’s own Queen Boudicca.

Test what you’ve learnt so far during during your Norwich family day out at The Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell. Packed full of exhibitions and interactive displays, here you can hear stories from those that lived here a long time ago. Follow their lives and take the opportunity to walk in their shoes.

The Norwich Cathedral has daily tours that will tell you all about its dramatic history through war, plague and fire. Follow the visitor trail and enjoy the chance to hear musical recitals and performances.

After all that culture the children may be in need of letting off some steam. Open is an indoor climbing wall that offers tasters for beginners and all equipment. If you’re after something more low key Hollywood Bowl also has arcades and pool tables, or practice your tucks and rolls at the Gravity Trampoline Park.
