Family Fun

I grew up in Hunstanton and I’ve always known that there are loads of things for you to do with the family in Norfolk, but until I sat down and started compiling a list I had no idea quite how long it would end up being.

Beans Seal trips​ is a wonderful thing to do, the trips are daily and times depend on the tides.

Hunstanton Sea Life​ isn’t the cheapest day out and really is only half a day out. But you can see lots of animals and enjoy the feeding times.

Snettisham Park​ is a really lovely petting farm, there are some naughty llamas, pygmy goats, and everything else you’d expect. They also do a deer safari and have a great play area.

Dinosaur Park​ really is a day out, take a picnic and discover the dinosaurs whilst collecting the stamps to earn a medal. There is an indoor and outdoor play area and a cafe.

Bewilderwood​ is an amazing place where your imagination can run wild… It’s a full day out, and great family fun! Its a huge, award winning forest of family fun and outdoor adventure. Treehouses, zip wires, jungle bridges, Crocklebogs, Twiggles and Boggles, storytelling, boat trips, marsh walks and really yummy food! Take a picnic to keep the cost down. This is my favourite place to go with the kids.

Farmer Freds​ is the best indoor soft play that I have ever experienced. Great for a wet day. They make all their own food, and it’s really delicious. The whole space is clean and comfortable and great for blowing off a bit of steam. Get their early to grab a comfy seat.

Hunstanton is a proper seaside town there’s arcades, crazy golf, a funfair and bowling. Sit on the green, watch the world go by and enjoy your fish and chips and an ice cream for pudding, then take a pony or donkey ride on the beach. They have a great joke shop which is well worth a visit. Wells-next-Sea is another seaside town there is an arcade, a harbour Railway with small gauge train that runs from the Pinewoods up to the town centre. There are great fish and chips and ice cream shops, and it’s a fun place to do some crabbing.

Mables Paint Pot​ is another rainy day favourite, and makes for a great holiday souvenir.

Pensthorpe​ is the perfect place to experience the beauty of the natural world on lakeside nature trails, woodland walks and has a new fantastic outdoor and indoor play area.

Norfolk Lavender​ has an animal centre, outdoor play area, lavender garden centre and lovely traditional tea rooms.

Holkham​ is fabulous for kids, there is the most brilliant tree top play area (which is free to get into) with a zip wire and swings. Car park tickets are about £3.50. Deers roam wild around the park and you can hire bikes or go for an amazing walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the country.

Pinewoods​ is great for a walk and a picnic, there are swings from the trees, den building areas, and great fun for any adventurous child. The beach runs adjacent and the woods are a great place to be when its a bit windy. There is a lovely cafe by the carpark and there is
also ​Abraham’s Bosom​ which is a 5 acre lake that you can rent boats, canoes etc.

RSPB Titchwell​ holds lots of events for kids throughout the year, it’s worth checking their calendar to see what’s on when you’re here. Drove Orchards​ has pick your own fruit.
