Things to do with the Kids in Norwich
Just a 40-minute drive from Hemsby, or 40 minutes from Great Yarmouth by train, the cultural city of Norwich is definitely worth a visit when holidaying with us at Hemsby Beach! From the city’s Norman Castle and Cathedral to outdoor watersports on the Broads, there’s a whole host of things to do with the kids in Norwich!
Gravity is situated within Riverside Entertainment, along the River Yare. With wall-to-wall trampolines for ultimate bouncing fun, exercise classes, sessions for those with disabilities, and, new for 2017, Rocks Urban Climbing! This a great activity for the kids to get active whilst still having tons of fun.
For an educational and cultural experience, try Norwich Cathedral. Over 900 years old, the cathedral dominates the city skyline with its tall spire – one of the tallest in England – and gorgeous architecture. You and the kids can take a free tour around the grounds and hear about the history of the religious building.
A favourite with kids and adults alike, try the fantastic Norwich Castle. Once a royal palace and then prison, the castle as it exists today houses a museum and gallery within its grounds. There are many features of the Castle still available to explore amongst the exhibitions featuring an ancient well and loopholes to peer through! The kids will love being transported back to Norman times and pretending to be a knight of the castle, so add this to your list of things to do with the kids in Norwich!
For some family fun, then Hollywood Bowl is a great option. With an amusement arcade and bar inside, why not enter in a little friendly competition with the kids and see who can score the highest? Located within Riverside Entertainment nearby to gravity, this in close proximity to plenty of car parking and the city centre. Riverside Entertainment also has plenty of places to grab a bite to eat after you’ve worn yourself out trying your best at bowling!
For outdoor active fun, try Whitlingham Outdoor Education Centre. With craft available to hire on selected dates over the school holidays, why not get out on the water with the kids and dabble in the county’s fantastic Broads National Park? There are also a number of courses that the kids can sign up for, from Archery & Survival to Canoeing!
