Family Friendly Attractions To Visit In Norfolk This Summer

AD | We previously received complimentary entry to some of these attractions Now that May half term is well and truly out of the way it’s time to start thinking about the summer holidays. With only just over 6 weeks to go I want to start pencilling in some activities and making some kind of plan. This will be the first summer since Erin started nursery that she will be home the whole time as there was a summer club at her old nursery. We don’t have that option now so I have 6 weeks to fill! I think we’re

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

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

The Average Cost Of A Family Day Out

Just a couple of weeks ago we experienced our first real February half term. Of course, we have been through half terms before but Erin went to the holiday club at her previous nursery but we don’t have that option any more. This time it was just me and Erin from Monday to Saturday and I had to figure out how to fill our week. It’s very rare that we have much (or any) spare money unless I really plan out finances down to the last penny and months in advance. We didn’t actually do too much this half term

February Half Term At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

AD – We received complimentary entry to Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. All opinions are our own.  Back when I moved to Norfolk in 2013 and started working at a soft play centre I heard so many things about Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. At the time we didn’t have any children so it’s taken some time to getting around to visit. However, now that Erin is 3 and this week has been her first half term from nursery, it seemed like a great time to go and we planned to make a day of it with friends. We arrived at just before 9:30 so

A Wild Day Out At BeWILDerwood

When I moved to Norfolk just over 5 years ago now I remember hearing so many great things about BeWILDerwood. Someone I worked with in my previous job also worked at BeWILDerwood as a story teller and she had so many great things to say.  At the time, I had no reason to visit but since Erin turned 2 last January we have been trying to find the right time to go. Towards the end of October half term we went for a family day out, along with Erin’s Auntie and Uncle, for The Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade, which ran until
