In Norwich there really is something for everyone. Often in the same venue. Take The Bowling House, where you can sip on Big Lebowski-inspired cocktails while the kids knock down the pins. Or a choice of two challenging escape rooms, Cryptic Escape and History Mystery. Want to go somewhere that seamlessly combines a tiny train with crazy golf? Eaton Park is a great place for sunny days and unspent energy.
Our history is our story. And we like to tell it right. Visit one of the many fascinating exhibitions at Norwich Castle Museum, and experience the Middle Ages. Strangers’ Hall is a living dolls house: once the home of medieval merchants, now somewhere to travel through time. While Norwich Ghost Walks, guided by The Witch Doctor, Le Morté and The Jack of Crows, help brave souls get under the city’s skin.
We’re a city that loves to celebrate. Every May, the Norfolk and Norwich Festival brings theatre, music, art and culture from all over the world. While July sees our annual Lord Mayor’s Celebration and Lanes Fayre fill the streets with parades, live music, food stalls and fireworks. For weird, wonderful experiments, don’t miss the Science Festival, held over October half-term. At Christmas, see Norwich dressed in its finest. Stay with us for light installations, pantomime, and taking a break from exploring with a hot chocolate from the market.
Culinary adventures can be tricky with kids. Luckily, Norwich is stuffed full of fun, unique places to eat. The iconic Waffle House is known for putting anything on a waffle. And we mean anything. While the market offers a variety of tasty street food. Why not take yours to The Sir Garnet next door? This historic pub welcomes families and their furry friends. Or pop over to The Grosvenor for their distinctive take on fish and chips. You won’t forget eating Clam Sliders in a bunker anytime soon
The city’s only part of the story. Ride the Boggle Boat at woodland wonderland BeWILDerwood. Relax in the tranquil haven of Pensthorpe Natural Park. Animal crackers? Visit Banham Zoo, Amazona or Africa Alive! At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure you can follow the dinosaur trail, tackle the Predator High Ropes, or let loose in Norfolk’s largest indoor play area. All these attractions can be reached easily by car.
