Since the clocks went back, we’ve all had a little extra spring in our steps. The days are longer and brighter, and we’re finally starting to see more of the sun than clouds. If that wasn’t enough, the first long weekend of the year is almost upon us.
We’re always hopeful of a heatwave for the Easter bank holiday weekend, but even rumours of rain couldn’t dampen our spirits with all the vibrant attractions of Norfolk opening up once again. If you’re planning a family getaway to Norfolk this weekend, here are a few things you definitely don’t want to miss.
Easter Egg Hunts in Norfolk
It wouldn’t be Easter without an egg hunt, and Norfolk has those in spades. The charming BeWILDerwood has already opened its annual Eggs-pedition, where children can meet Cedric the Easter Bunny and delve through the Tricky Tunnels, take part in crafts workshops, have their faces painted, and sit down to hear the tale of the Pesky Bunnies at the Storytelling Stage.
BeWILDerwood is just a 7-minute drive from Hall Farm. We advise booking in advance, as online tickets are cheaper than paying on the day.
If you’re looking for something a little further afield, Pensthorpe National Park also puts on a family Easter egg hunt, where you’ll have to work together to find the coveted golden egg.
A Pirate’s Life for Ye
If the weather doesn’t hold out, there’re plenty of indoor options for keeping the little ones entertained. Although, we can’t guarantee that staying indoors will keep you dry. The Hippodrome Circus in Great Yarmouth is putting on a brand new production this Easter; an interactive water show called Pirates Live!
The production is phenomenal, and excitement for the show has reached an all time high. We highly recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
Easter Tours of the Norfolk Broads
The Norfolk Broads are unmissable at any time of year, but Easter gives you a chance to view it in a uniquely family-friendly environment. Local companies offer boating tours of the Broads, where children can spot the local wildlife and grownups can sit back and relax.
We recommend Broads Tours, as they’re also running Nature Quizzes for the kids and free to enter colouring competitions. Plenty to keep the little ones busy while you enjoy the natural splendour of the Broads.
Easter at Hall Farm Cottages
Hall Farm Cottages is based on the northern edge of the Norfolk Broads, with good access by car to most of Norfolk. There’s also plenty of things for you to do for free over the bank holiday weekend in Norfolk, and tonnes of unmissable oppurtunities that are running all year round.
