Now that summer is drawing to a close, and autumn is approaching you may be wondering what to do with the kids on weekends to keep them busy? Well, the good news is there are a whole host of seasonal activities on offer in the beautiful county of Norfolk. To find out which are the most fun, just keep reading.
Run Free in the Forest
If only there was a magical forest full of slides, climbing frames, rope walks, and zip lines where children and adults can run free? A forest where you have to take a trip in an enchanted boat, and when you arrive you will be greeted by the magical residents? Well, there is and it’s called Bewilderwood.
Of course, the magical residents are puppets, but the kids don’t need to know that, and the experience of sailing over the lake to get to the park is truly a special one. Bewilderwood is even hosting special autumn events including a lantern parade this year, so it is the perfect option for an Autumn afternoon/evening.
Pick Some Pumpkins
Few things are as seasonal as picking your own pumpkins for decorating your house. The good news is that there are 10 Places to Go Pumpkin Picking in Norfolk to choose from. Of course, you can expect added activities and entertainment for the whole family as well including autumn-themed refreshments, face painting for the kids, and even fancy dress competitions, so if your little ones want to do their witch or wizard costumes to enhance their day – you are free to give them the go-ahead.
Visit Some Dinos
If your children love Jurassic Park, then why not take them for a Norfolk Dinosaur day out, minus the danger at Roarr Dinosaur Adventure. This park located in Norfolk is packed with dino-themed attractions from the ‘spot the dinosaur’ trail, to the high ropes. They even have an indoor activity centre, which is ideal for those less than sunny autumn days where you still want the kids to have fun and burn off some energy!
Norfolk Indoor Fun
Last of all, if you find yourself in Norfolk this Autumn, visiting Great Yarmouth is always a smart idea. Indeed, Yarmouth was recently voted as the number one location for a UK staycation. There is plenty to do in Yarmouth at this time of year.
If the weather is good feel free to take a walk along the beach or Britannia or Wellington Pier where you will find plenty of entertainment and refreshments. The good news is there is plenty to do in Yarmouth if it’s raining as well such as visit the Sealife Centre in Hunstanton where you will find plenty of Aquariums packed with sea creatures such as jellyfish and sharks. Then there is the Penguin beach and otter river which are sure to delight the kids.
Alternatively, why not take the little ones to ‘play the slots’ in the Arcades that line the beachfront.
