A family pub lunch at The King’s Head, Wroxham

Being a non-driving family we always like to find places in Norfolk that we can get to either by bus or train. One of our favourite places to visit is Wroxham as it’s only a 10 minute train ride away and then a short walk into town. Usually, when we go here we have a McDonald’s and then feed the ducks but this time we did something different. We booked a pub lunch at The King’s Head.

Staying local in Norfolk over half term

Although travel restrictions have been lifted and we’re free to go anywhere in the UK we like we decided that we wanted to stay local for this half term. We love living in Norfolk and we have so many amazing places to visit on our doorstep. Sometimes we like to stay in Norfolk and that’s exactly what we did this half term.

Seaside afternoon tea at The Assembly House, Norwich

On of my absolutely favourite places to go in Norwich is The Assembly House. I fell in love from my very first afternoon tea there and have been back so many times since then and even had an overnight stay last year. The great thing about The Assembly House is that they change the afternoon tea fairly often and they’re usually themed as well. During May half term we took Erin as a treat to enjoy a seaside themed afternoon tea.

AD | Collaborative post In April 2014 John and I were able to buy our first house together. In fact, we’re still in that house now 7 years later and don’t plan on moving again for the next few years at least. When I look back to when we were planning on going from being in a small rented flat to dreaming of owning our own home it all seemed a bit impossible. We had no idea what we were doing and could have really done with someone explaining a few things to us. I

Shopping, a driving theory test and dinner in Norwich

At the beginning of half term John and I got to go for a very rare day out on our own. Mum had agreed to have Erin all day and take her out for lunch while we went into Norwich late in the morning. Our day out wasn’t just for no reason though; John had his driving theory test booked for the afternoon.

Summer fun at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

When it comes to half terms and school holidays if we ask Erin where she wants to go the most her answer is almost always Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. It’s been a firm favourite since the first time we visited back when Erin had just turned 3 and I don’t think that’s going to change any time soon. We visited again during May half term (2020) to see what some of thew newer attractions were like!
