Norfolk (UK) with your kids for the holidays there are plenty of things
to do, no matter the weather. We have complied the top 9 attractions, some
are free and some you'll need to pay for. Enjoy your holidays!
Norfolk's newest attraction
is being hailed the best in the region. Although it doesnt take a whole
day it is fun especially for younger kids. Walk through the trees houses,
have a go on the zip wires, use the slides and get involved in the interactive
activities such as den building. Watch out for the crocabog on the boat
ride! Allow about 2/3 hours to visit Bewilderwood which is more like an
unusual adventure play ground rather than a theme park.
A good day out with lots
of different animals to see. Banham claim there is 1000 different animals
in 35 acres of parkland. All the animals appear to be well looked after.
