Top 5 | Family days out

For families looking for days out, there is no end to the exciting activities that Norfolk has to offer. For the days off when the kids are suddenly bored with nothing to do (apparently) and boundless energy to burn, here's a Top-5 of Norfolk's best days out for families.


Travel back in time and experience the prehistoric land of the dinosaurs! ROARR! in Lenwade is the UK’s largest dinosaur-themed adventure park. Whatever the weather, there are digs to be dug, dinos to discover, and adventure around every corner. With 85 acres of dino-filled fun to sink your teeth into, this is the ideal place to spend a day of adventure and memories.

Park tickets for adults and children over 90cm start from £9.95 outside peak season, or purchase the ROARR! Annual pass for entry all year and discounts on food, drink, and in the store!


Forest fun isn't hard to find in this playful park! BeWILDerwood is an award-winning adventure park with a large forest and many outdoor adventure activities to keep the kids busy. Once you've entered the enchanting forest, all extra activities, such as face painting, den building, and boat rides, are included in your day! No need to pay extra - enter the forest and focus on fitting in as much as possible.

Seasonal events occur in the forest-themed park, providing even more entertainment to the already fun-abundant day.

Who doesn't love a typical British day at the seaside? Whether it's to sunbathe in the summertime or go for a Sunday morning winter beach walk, Cromer is stunning all year round. There's plenty to do to keep all family members entertained, with quaint gift shops beside amusement stores and family pubs to pop in for lunch.

If you'd prefer to dine alfresco, what better way to grab some fish & chips and sit by the shore? No.1's at Cromer is right by the seafront, allowing you to grab your food and continue marvelling at the sea. Alternatively, if the great British weather is in full force, No.1's also has a dine-in restaurant. Ice cream shops, cafes, and even a cocktail bar - Cromer can be enjoyed whatever the weather.

Wroxham Barns

Shop, eat, play, and pet! Grab some pet food from the junior fun farm and get up close and personal while feeding a range of farmyard animals, in return for them (maybe) allowing you to stroke them. Afterward, head to the park for a family round of mini golf, or watch the kids as they smile and cheer from the rides. 

If this jam-packed day leaves you needing energy, dine in the courtyard café, or grab a sweet treat from the Great Fudge Company, one of many small shops at the barns. This award-winning visitor attraction is also close to the stunning Norfolk Broads, making this a must-visit area while in Norfolk.

Watatunga Wildlife Safari

Set in 170 acres of beautiful woodland, fields, and lakes, Watatunga Nature Reserve is dedicated to conservation. With various experiences, from buggy tours to luxury stays, Watatunga is a stunning destination that all ages will love. See endangered species of deer, antelope, and birds, and enjoy being out in the fresh air of the gorgeous Norfolk countryside.
