Top 10 Family Activities
There's a huge variety of family fun for all the family in Norwich this February half term!
- This is a perfect time for all the family to learn about of the traditions and stories of Valentine’s Day. Gressenhall Farm and Workshop have their Mr Valentine’s Quest which is a great opportunity to learn more about this tradition and the mysterious character of Jack Valentine!
- Every February, the gardens of Raveningham Hall open just for the snowdrop season! And with over 10 acres in Raveningham's grounds, seeing it covered in beautiful snowdrops is truly a sight to behold!
- Let loose! Go crazy with Eaton Park Crazy Golf. Open from 10am to dusk, there are special deals for groups and a second round on the same day is half the price! So invite the family, the friends and the kids for a golfing session with a crazy twist!
- Signs of Spring Week - It’s almost Spring, a beautiful time of year when we say goodbye to winter and welcome a new cycle of nature! Celebrate the wonders of Spring with Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden by looking out for signs in their garden.
- Parks, parks and parks! We are so fortunate in Norwich to have so many green spaces and a must-do on the list is a visit to Eaton Park – a truly beautiful heritage park complete with stunning planting, architecture and a large model boats boating lake. Get your coats on and wrap up warm – whatever the weather, there is also a rather lovely café too! It's a definite winner.
- It's cookie decorating time! Let the kids test their creative skills and decorate cookies to their heart's content with the help of Chef Nigel Raffles! Book a table at the Library Restaurant & Bar while you’re at it and enjoy some fantastic food after a busy day of baking!
- An abundant amount of fun is to be had at Norwich Castle. Discover Saxon gold, chariot rides, dungeon tours, the world’s largest collection of tea pots, and works of wonderful art – there’s something for everyone. Not to mention the Castle itself being a rather stunning architectural structure. Head to Castle Mall’s food court afterwards for a spot of lunch to replenish your energy, ready for more Norwich adventures!
- The Museum of Norwich at The Bridewell is a great and interactive way for the kids and the whole family to learn more about Norwich, whether you're a local 'Norwichian' or a visitor.
- Escape to the market towns of Norfolk - Wymondham, Diss, Harleston and Loddon are all great for a day to enjoy independent shops, tea rooms, walks and pub lunches.
- Explore the Broads National Park by joining Broads Tours for a boat trip this February. Oh, and have we mentioned children go free - not a bad, eh?
