A few years ago, we took a little holiday in Norfolk, on the Suffolk borders. It was such a fab holiday – we had 3 little ones at the time. We also visited Suffolk on our last ever holiday as a couple – about a month before Elodie was due! There are a great many lovely things to do in Norfolk and it’s very family friendly – it’s a brilliant place for a staycation and so I just thought I’d write about the fun things to do in Norfolk with kids.
BeWILDerwood – Is such a lovely place for kids to visit. Ours still talk about visiting here several years on! BeWILDerwood is an outdoor adventure park based on the children’s books of local author Tom Blofeld, which are set in this whimsical woodland. The stories are brought to life with storytelling sessions, tree top playgrounds based on the homes from the books and boat rides through the beautiful countryside. Children can make dens, enjoy face-painting, story telling, craft making and running wild in mazes, tree houses, slippery slope slides and wobbly wire zip lines!
Norwich Castle – lots of hands on activities for children to do and interesting for adults, too.
Pensthorpe Natural Park – is a fab place to visit for a family day out. There are beautiful gardens to walk around, lakeside nature trails and woodland walks, flamingos, cranes and ducks and geese gallore. It also has a fab adventure playground and an indoor play area too.
North Norfolk Railway – This makes a lovely trip for kids and you can combine it with popping in to see ‘Broad Sidlinch’ a 300 square foot model railway, and visit the Railway museum.

Fulfill the kids dreams and go Mud Sliding at Burnham Overy Staithe what an amazing thing for kids to do – slide around in mud and then wash off in the sea!

Wroxham Junior Farm – This a great farm for kids with animals to feed and cuddle, face painting and an animal tour.
Sandringham Estate –
We were able to park for free at Sandringham and use their large adventure playground also for free. You are also able to walk around some of the estate again for free. There is 243 hectares available for visitors to enjoy. There are two waymarked Nature Trails, one 1½ miles long and the other 2½ miles long, and there are many other woodland paths to explore.
Beaches are also lovely in Cromer and Wells – good for warmer weather days but also great for a winter’s walk along the front.
Felbrigg National Trust Property
Felbrigg has a great adventure playground for kids with sandpits to play in and beautiful gardens and a house to explore.
