On our way to Norfolk, we took a slight detour and went to Wicken Fen which is a marshlands site with beautiful yellow tall grass and easy paths for the pram. (They also have rare hen harriers so happy hubby too). We had a few hours walking round the site, pausing for photo's by the wind turbines and then visiting the visitor centre where there was colouring in and crafts for children.
We visited the grand Blickling Estate on a grey day with drizzle and an out of bounds play area. There was, however, plenty to see indoors with many rooms open to the public which transported me to a typical Downton scene.
There were also trees to climb outdoors and nooks and crannies to explore and I kindly let the children accompany me on my ventures.
Kings Lynn museum had a 'carousel and candyfloss' exhibition on so I left my husband to his feathery friends and ventured very early to this little town. Close to the tourist office were these old buoys and compass.
I read a good review about a farm close to where we staying called church farm and we were certainly not disappointed. There was a good selection of animals for the children to see, pet, and feed.
I personally loved the pigs and piglets!
Towards the end of our week we also visited Hunstanton beach for a windy picnic and some kite flying.
Thus endeth our Norfolk holiday!
