Are you one of the lucky ones who will be visiting the Norfolk Broads this summer? We can’t wait to welcome our guests back to our holiday park, and that’s why we’re on hand with our top visitor attractions that you can reach easily from Waveney River Centre.
Of course there is plenty to keep you occupied onsite, however if you would prefer a day-trip to explore the local area, these are our top picks for a great family day out:
Take in the spirit of Africa, right on your doorstep:
With Africa Alive! just a stone’s throw away you can escape the peaceful Norfolk countryside and enjoy a walk on the wild side for a few hours, exploring this unique 100 acre slice of Africa. You will be able to spot five species of savannah animals, including graceful giraffes and heavy weight rhinos.
Go Wild, Outdoors
If you’re looking for something to really tire the kids (of all ages) out, a day at BeWilderwood is sure to do just that! Explore treehouses, zip wires, jungle bridges and Crocklebogs boat trips – let us warn you, you may get muddy, so don’t forget to pack your sensible shoes.
Enjoy a walk in Wroxham
Enjoy a leisurely day spent enjoying Wroxham, often referred to as the capital of the Broads. Here you can shop in the “world’s largest village store” Roys of Wroxham, indulge in Fish and Chips or explore the waterways with a Norfolk Broads boat hire from our sister company, Broads Tours.
Build a Sandcastle
We’re brilliantly close to the coast, so you’ve got plenty of beaches to explore – we’d recommend Southwold; a charming Suffolk seaside town which offers a bustling harbour, cliff top cannon and award-winning pier. With many restaurants and pubs now slowly re-opening we’re sure you’ll find a great spot to dine after a long beach walk. Alternatively with many now offering take away services why not take your meal alfresco and enjoy along the coastline.
Become a wildlife explorer
We can’t forget to mention the fantastic Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve, just 2 minutes across the river on our very own ferry. You’ll find a wonderful marshland perfect for a peaceful family walk. We’re sure you’ll even spot some of the rare wildlife the Waveney Valley has to offer if you keep your eyes open. Don’t forget to look up, you might catch a glimpse of a Marsh Harrier looking for it’s next prey.
Of course there are plenty of other places to visit whilst staying with us, we’ve listed a few more here in our local area guide
Of course many of these attractions have their own guidelines and booking conditions, so we recommend checking their website before visiting to avoid any disappointment. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
