Children’s outings

Play (indoor) for Children

You can go swimming at the Reef Leisure Centre at Sheringham; or Victory Swimming Pool in North Walsham.

There’s a great place in Norwich called Bowling House – where you can eat, bowl, sing kareoke and have lots of fun.  It’s an independent – and they are great! 

Nearest cinema is the Regal at Cromer.

Davenport’s Magic Kingdom  in North Walsham is rated for its magic museum, which charts the history of conjuring.

Or try the Sticky Earth Cafe in Cromer, where you can design, create and paint onto ceramics, tshirts and mouse mats.

Play (outdoor) for Children

I would recommend Bewilderwood: “A huge forest of wild family fun and adventure!  Treehouses, zipwires, jungle bridges, Crocklebogs, boat trips, marsh walks and great yummy food!”

Wroxham Barns is another lovely place – a place where everyone can be happy.  Ian Russell, owner, says “we pride ourselves on being the ‘must visit’ for ALL the family. There are craft studios and superb shopping facilities for the grown-ups, while the youngsters will love our Junior Farm and Children’s Funfair. We are constantly updating and extending the activities on offer so there is always something fresh to see and do.”

Roarr! is a must for all those budding paleontologists a place to explore and play in 100 acres of woods and parkland, discovering the amazing world of the dinosaurs.

There is Pettitt’s Adventure Park, where they say “come and spend the day, not a fortune”.   There are rides galore for young children, family entertainment, exotic and domestic animals and birds to see as well as animals to feed and pet.

The Bure Valley Railway is great.  Take the train both ways, or walk/cycle on the path beside it and get the train back.

Closer to home there is the Happisburgh Owls

And in Great Yarmouth there are plenty of places for the Children to visit. This includes the funfair attractions of The Pleasure Beach, the Sea Life Centre and lots more.
