Activities and Family Activities in Norwich

There's plenty of things to do in the Norfolk Broads; boating and sailing, canoeing and kayaking, whether on the Norfolk Broads or at sea; great opportunities to fish, or just go crabbing or rock pooling; or you could ride horses or take a flutter on them at Fakenham or Great Yarmouth.

We don't agree with Noel Coward's Private Lives 'Very flat, Norfolk' comment, but it's true we don't have many mountains. Gently undulating would be more like it, which makes cycling and walking through beautiful countryside and along unspoilt coast an absolute joy. Or you could let a train take the strain. Wondering what to do in Norfolk? We have fabulous golf courses (although it can get a bit Crazy in Great Yarmouth), including links, and if you can't have a break without a twitch, we have some of the best birdwatching in the UK.

Whatever the weather, Norwich has attractions to suit all tastes and pockets, from adventure parks to animals in zoos, from historic houses to excellent gardens and museums.

Figures from history include Boudicca and Nelson, whose national importance is such that their statues top-and-tail Whitehall in London, and the Hollywood actor James Stewart earned honours as a courageous second world war air force commander flying from a base in Norfolk.
