With its accent firmly on quality and with strong green credentials, it manages that really rather rare thing - of appealing to different ages. Grown-ups enjoy pottering around the shops and workshops, often chatting to the artists themselves or stopping to watch a craftsman create something unique. With a wood turner, stained glass specialist and Chris Hutchins from Norfolk Sketches, you will find the gift that is just that bit special. Fashion lovers should seek out the Gallery where labels such as Seasalt, Ness and Steilmann are on offer along sidehand bags, scarves, hats and more. And Sugar and Spice offers quirky children's pieces which are much more fun than items offered in the High Street. Foodie lovers are especially well catered for as the Pantry is packed with delicious food, much sourced locally so you can stock up your own store cupboards with jams, chutneys, oils,wines and more. « less

I've been visiting Norfolk and Wroxham Barns since I was a child, its been a few years since I've been and to be honest its not what it used to be. I understand attractions have to stick with the times but it now seems to be aimed at children. Why would the petting zoo be themed for children when adults... More

Had not visited in years and felt as it something was lacking. I realise places need to update but not sure if I will return in a hurry. Seems to be very children orientated which is fine in its way.

Been here before and found that on our return, the place was just as good. The disabled parking was good, as it was tarmac, where the rest of the car park is gravel. The shops are varied and interesting, with a good selection if items to buy. We always buy too much. As we were there at the start of... More

My hubby & I were holidaying near Yarmouth at the beginning of September and on one of our days out we decided to visit Wroxham Barns. It is a lovelly place with shops offering many 'different' things you wouldnt find in most high street shops. The prices on a lot of things were rather high! But then they often are... More

Went with my friend and her 2.5 year old. Children only get free entry if they are under 2. Found entry price far too expensive adults were £11 each!!!! Was a nice day for the kids. They got to feed lambs and learn about animals but do they not realise that people who have children can't afford these ridiculous prices!!

Great place for the whole family. It has a farm, soft-play play barn, and a small fairground. The farm you can enter as many times as you like once you pay the entrance fee. The restaurant is also great, the pork burger is excellent. You could spend a whole day here. There is also arts and crafts - Wife will... More

It would be quite easy for wroxham barns to charge entry to their complex, instead they only charge for the farm! The restaurant is very good though service can be slow, especially if staff are chatting!!! The shops showcase local crafts and produce and there is a great mini fun fair/crazy golf/inflatables area for kids to let of steam. The... More
