Summer At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

AD | Gifted tickets Somewhere I have always heard such great things about for a day out in Norfolk is Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. We first visited with Erin during February half term earlier this year but we had to cut our trip short as my friend’s son wasn’t very well. Erin has been asking to go back ever since but as a non-driving family it’s pretty hard to get to. This year, Roarr! have done something really fantastic and put on a free bus, the DinoBus, from Norwich during the summer holidays. For us as a family, this was a pretty

A Family Day At Holt Country Park

Living in Norfolk we are really spoiled with a huge list of places that we could visit for a day out. However, as we don’t drive a lot of the places are extremely hard for us to get to. Luckily, we go for days out with my sister and her fiance around once a month so we always tend to pick somewhere that we couldn’t get to otherwise. This time our visit was to Holt Country Park, which is about a 30 minute drive away from where we live. At the entrance to Holt Country Park there is plenty of

A Visit To Sea Life Great Yarmouth

AD | Gifted tickets During our recent holiday to Haven Seashore we made sure we got out of the park for a day and headed into Great Yarmouth. After a really fun morning at the beach and then having chips for lunch we headed to Sea Life Great Yarmouth for the afternoon. Sea Life Great Yarmouth can be found on the sea front and right by Wellington Pier. We got the bus from Haven and there was a stop right outside so that’s really handy if you don’t want to walk the whole way (which is quite far). When we arrived at

A Family Day Out To Sheringham

This past weekend was a very rare one where John didn’t have to work on the Saturday and we had some extra money put aside so we could go out for the day as a family. It’s not very often we do this just the three of us so we wanted to do something really fun and go somewhere sort of new. Even though I have lived in Norfolk now for six years now but somewhere I had never really been (apart from passing through) was Sheringham. We decided to make the most of the nice weather and have a

A Day Out At Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden

I moved to Norfolk in 2013 just after finishing university and I couldn’t be happier living here. I think we’re so lucky to live in such a beautiful area of the country and there’s so much on offer here. Unfortunately, we don’t have a car and can’t drive so we can’t normally get to a lot of places on my to visit wish list. Sometimes we go for days out with my sister and her fiance, who do have a car, so we always try to pick somewhere that we couldn’t go to otherwise. One of our most recent days

A Greater Anglia Rail Adventure To Ely

AD | Press tickets  The first time I ever came to Norfolk I remember passing through somewhere with the most beautiful cathedral. That place was Ely in Cambridgeshire. I would pass Ely every single time I came to Norfolk and every time made me want to visit even more. It has been 7 years since I first visited Norfolk and even though I have lived here for nearly 6 years now I still haven’t made it to Ely. Greater Anglia recently got in touch to let us know that there are some great locations for days out on the network

Places To Visit Before Your Child Starts Infant School

I can’t believe that in only a few months we’ll be applying for Erin’s place at an Infant school. We only have 18 months left to take advantage of being able to go anywhere with Erin no matter what time of year it is. There are a few places that I would love to take Erin before she starts school, mainly because I know it would be cheaper for us! (Images are from some other blogger’s reviews! Be sure to check them out) Disneyland Paris This is a bit of a biggie and I’m pretty sure we won’t be able

7 Great Outdoor Days Out In Norfolk

AD | We received press tickets to some of these locations Before moving to Norfolk I can honestly say I really wasn’t much of an outdoorsy type. I would have much preferred to stay inside, in the warm, and watch a film or read a book. Norfolk is such a beautiful place though and especially since having Erin, we have tried to get out and about a lot more. If you’re looking for something to do in Norfolk here are some ideas for outdoor days out: Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park had been somewhere I wanted to
