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

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
