A summer of fun at Wroxham Barns

AD | Press tickets We’re very lucky here in Norfolk that we have some really amazing attractions for families and one of our personal favourites is Wroxham Barns. Since our last visit there have been some new additions and we couldn’t wait to check them out.

A rainy day visit to the circus

Over the weekend we had a family day out planned, with a trip to Cromer to see Circus Cortex. We hadn’t planned on the weather being absolutely terrible though! I was hoping for a lovely sunny day by the sea but instead what we actually got was a lot of rain.

Theatre review: Priscilla Queen of the Desert at Norwich Playhouse

AD | Press tickets Years ago, when I was growing up, I remember seeing the film Priscilla Queen of the Desert and thinking ‘wow, I’ve never seen anything like this before’. This week, at Norwich Playhouse, Priscilla is hitting the stage and I got to go and experience it for myself on opening night.

A seaside lunch at the Tides Restaurant in Cromer

AD | Complimentary meal We’re so lucky to have so many wonderful places to eat here in Norfolk. When in Cromer though somewhere most people visit at least once is the Cromer Pier, which also has it’s very own restaurant. The Tides Restaurant has just launched a brand new menu and we visited over the weekend to give it a try.

Restaurant review: The Station Smokehouse, Wroxham

Sometimes, it can be easy to go to the same restaurants you know and love. This is exactl what me and a friend usually do when we go out for a meal. However, a couple of weeks ago we decided to try The Station Smokehouse in Wroxham as they had 50% off burgers on a Monday. I can’t resist a discount.

National Trust: Felbrigg Hall, Gardens and Estate

Being a non-driving family we don’t often get to visit National Trust properties. Sadly, a lot of them are not close enough to public transport and we tent to overlook them when thinking about days out. However, recently we went on a day out with my sister and brother-in-law and made the most of being able to go somewhere in a car. Felbrigg Hall, Gardens and Estate was where we chose to go!

Glamping at Bumblebarn, Beeston Regis

Way back in August 2019 I booked for us to go glamping at Bumblebarn Bell Tents for the very first time. The trip was supposed to happen in summer 2020 but because of Covid that didn’t happen. Luckily, we were able to rebook quickly and easily so we chose the first weekend of the summer holidays this year for our trip and we were finally able to go last week!
