09 March 2020

If you are planning a trip to the Norfolk Broads this Easter, there is plenty to do – here are our top recommendations

1 Wroxham

Hand Feeding the Lambs at Wroxham BarnesFeed the Lambs at Wroxham Barns. And, whilst you are at it, grab a chance to look around this award-winning visitor attraction.
Wroxham Barnes is 7 mins by car or 35 mins on foot from Barnes Brinkcraft




Hoveton Hall Easter Treasure Hunt 10th to 13th April, adults £7.50, child £4.00
Let the kids follow the clues around this fine Broadland Garden



You too could be enjoying a curious treehouse adventure at Bewilderwood. (it does help if you bring kids under 12 along) This spring you meet Cedric the Easter bunny in person

Bewilderwood is 5 mins drive from Barnes Brinkcraft or a 20 min walk from the centre of Horning




3. Stalham – Easter Activities

Combine a little learning with your Easter Trail at the rather lovely Museum of the Broads. It’s running from the 1st -19th April Access is by car, bus or boat detailed here






4. Hickling

Hickling Broad SunsetHickling is the largest broad and a year-round haven for wildlife
Mooring available at the broad. (please check your boat will go underneath Potter Heigham bridge)

Paddle Boarding Need to work off that extra chocolate? Have a go at canoeing or paddleboarding. The award-winning Norfolk Outdoor Adventures, offer private hire & group sessions. They can also tailor activities to suit your group. I love the idea of their Sundowner Kayak Adventure

It is a rather nice hour-long walk to Norfolk Outdoor Adventure, or you could book a taxi

Alternatively, bring your own board or canoe if you have one

5. Great Yarmouth

The Hippodrome Gt Yarmouth

If you’ve had enough of all things Easter Bunny, I can highly recommend the Pirates Show at the Hippodrome. Kids will love it, and you will be amazed at the incredible art deco auditorium.

Sky Drop Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach



Slightly older kids (and the kidults amongst us) could really enjoy the pleasure beach. Although my stomach rebels at the thought of that sky drop thingy


6. South Walsham

airhaven Woodland and Water GardenFairhaven Woodland and Water Garden offer a top-notch easter egg hunt. It’s also worth having a look at their excellent and varied programme of events. Such as Wildlife Photography Experience, Bat Night, Warden Walk or Dawn Chorus
It takes 1/2hr to walk from the moorings on South Walsham broad to the Water Garden
