Petting zoos through to Tree top adventures, long walks and cycle rides through the pretty villages, fishing, going to wonderful entertainment theme parks, exploring the marshlands, watching the wildlife on and around the Broads, sailing or canoeing on the Broads or around the coast, visiting the seals in north norfolk or just spending days on the beaches.

There is a wonderful museums to wander around, including one dedicated to the Norfolk Broads history, another to Norfolk Rural life, another to the Fishing Industry. There are restored steam trains to journey on, a castle to visit, dungeons to get lost in, quaint pubs and restaurants on the waterside, passenger boats to take a river trip or coastal voyage on, a myriad of churches with towers to climb, cliffs to excavate for fossils, seaside rock makers and shops a plenty.
