Things to do in Norfolk this Easter

Spring is a time of hope and happiness as new life emerges and the brown of bare trees turns green again. At Round the Woods our woodland flowers burst into life including a lovely display of Daffodils and Bluebells, the pond overflows with mating frogs and our bee get busy after a quiet winter huddled keeping warm in their hives. It’s such an exciting time to watch the buds growing on the trees and Norfolk is a great place to experience this joyous time of year. Whether you’re tempted to come glamping in our little slice of Norfolk paradise or wanting to make the most of your Easter holiday elsewhere locally I hope this gives you a few ideas and you enjoy your Easter holiday.

Here’s why we think you should visit Norfolk this Easter:

A Day at the Seaside

Who doesn’t love a trip to the beach. Whilst we do find ourselves visiting in the winter we have to agree that beach activities lend themselves rather well to warmer weather so with Spring upon us dig out the buckets and spades and a frisbee and spend the day at the beach. Norfolk has an amazing coastline of sandy and pebble beaches depending on your preference. Cromer is famous for crabbing, you can experience the true British seaside experience in Great Yarmouth or seek out a quieter beach for some peaceful relaxation. Here’s a list of some of the great beaches Norfolk has to offer.


Norfolk has an abundance of attractions in all shapes and sizes suitable for any interests. For families Bewilderwood, Roarr!! Dinosaur Adventure, Gressenhall Farm & Workhouse and Pensthorpe Natural Park are great options plus there are several zoo attractions to choose from. Visit Norfolk is a great resource to see what’s on offer.

Spring Wildlife

Spring is a truly wonderful time to visit Norfolk. As the countryside comes to life again there are great opportunities for wildlife spotting and appreciating the blooms. In our humble opinion Norfolk is the top spot for bird watching in the UK with so many great nature reserves to choose from, including Cley Marshes, Foxley Wood, Strumpshaw Fen, Titchwell Marsh, Snettisham and the Broads.

Stately Homes and Gardens

Take a peak into Norfolk’s past with a visit to one of the stately homes in the area. Easter is a lovely time to wander around their beautiful gardens.

Families might enjoy bottle feeding orphaned lambs which can be experienced at several farms and attractions at this time of year, including Church Farm at Stow Bardolph, Snettisham Park, Wroxham Barns, Gressenhall Farm & Workhouse and Felbrigg Hall.

Railway Adventure

It seems to be a running theme but again there’s lots to choose from and many of them are running Easter events. The bonus is that a railway trip is perfect for sunny and rainy days alike. Here’s a useful list of the options for your train themed day out.

Let’s be honest, whilst we are all going to wish for a sunny warm Easter holiday the reality is that there may be a few spots of rain - although Norfolk is the driest county so you’re in the right place to reduce your chances! Here are a few indoor options which are guaranteed fun whatever the weather:
