There are plenty of family-fun activities this October Half-Term for the whole family.
Here are our top picks to get you out and about exploring the great outdoors.
Walk along the historic coast
Dust off your walking boots and join in with the newly founded Norfolk Walking Festival. Held between 17th October – 1st November, the festival celebrates the historic Norfolk coastline. This half-term why not complete a family friendly 1-2 mile walk starting from Happisburgh to RNLI Station at Cart Gap. Suitable for all ages and fitness, get out and enjoy the stunning scenery and the great outdoors. During the walk, you will learn about the sea, shore and land through story and imagination with the Lighthouse Keeper’s Sister whilst discovering extraordinary facts and exploring with the Wind Artist.
At the end of the walk, children have the opportunity to create a unique work of art to take home. More information on the family walks here.
Autumn seaside fun
Summer may be over, but now is the perfect time of year to head over to Cromer and go crabbing. The air may be getting colder but while the sea is still warm. Needing only a few essentials, crabbing is a fun inexpensive day out. And once you’re done, grab some delicious fish and chips after all of your hard work! Here are some top tips to avoid being pinched.
Explore the broads
One of Norfolk’s seven wonders, the Norfolk Broads is a fantastic way to discover Norfolk. Join Broads Tour this half term, where a skipper will give a live commentary explaining the origins of the Broads, and point out interesting wildlife and nature facts. And what’s even better, children go free! See here for more info.
