A few ideas to help you plan your trip

Some ideas for grown ups

  • Shopping, architecture, culture and dining in the fine city of Norwich.
  • Unique and tantalising culture and entertainment at The Norfolk and Norwich Festival, which runs for two weeks in May every year
  • Browsing narrow streets and unique shops in a local market town – North Walsham, Aylsham or Holt.
  • Wildlife, birds, sailing, canoeing, fishing… The Broads National Park is close by.
  • Go and visit the Queen at Sandringham.
  • High quality arts at the Sainsbury Centre, adjacent to the UEA.
  • Hang out with the rich and famous at “Chelsea on Sea” around Wells and the Burnhams.
  • Enjoy the majesty of Holkham Hall and the stunning beach.

  • Browse locally made crafts at Alby Crafts and Wroxham Barns.
