    Just arrived after our amazing week away at the south Norfolk broads . We had the broom skipper 1 and for two people this boat was amazing ! I have to say the staff at broom boats were amazing nothing was too much trouble and I mean nothing from fixing our toilet loading our luggage taking it to the car and emptying out rubbish . If you have never done the broads you are missing out and I would totally recommend broom boats and enjoy the experience 10/10 service and a holiday we will never forget 👏🏻

    Great house and gardens and extensive grounds to wander around. Latin religious motto on top of house.

    This was one of my favourite places on my recent trip to Norwich. It really is such a hidden gem. We walked from the city (it isn't too far-about 20 minutes and the journey itself is quite picturesque with cute cafes along the way). It is a haven of tranquility and just a really great place to sit and take in the beautiful flowers and garden. It was heavenly. I felt really grounded. Would be a wonderful place to take a book or even to sit and meditate for an hour.

    Well done to the volunteers for doing such an amazing job with this place. The information boards were very interesting too and gave good insights into the history of the garden.

    Loved the tour of the Hawker Siddeley Nimrod. Clyde, the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and the history of the Versatile Nimrod is fascinating. They have s wonderfully cared for display of planes including a Vulcan on display outside and much more memorabilia indoors in beautifully collated displays. There is a shop and cafe, friendly helpful staff, if you like planes it’s a must see!

    Unfortunately, the castle part was closed for renovations during our visit so it was just the museum. We had low expectations but my friend and I passed a morning here quite easily. It is a mixture of a Natural History Museum, Art Gallery and history museum. There are some nice paintings including some by Turner. It was interesting to discover that Norwich has quite a history of art. I wasn't aware of that.

    The natural history museum section was our favourite part especially the dioramas of the various Norfolk habitats. That really brought them to life. There was also an interesting shell and egg collection (odd mix I know).
    The history section had a cool exhibition on teapots (don't laugh- be open-minded).

    There is a café and a small gift shop on site.

    Overall, we enjoyed the experience and learned a good bit. We did feel the museum could benefit from a few more interactive displays though. There was a lot of reading involved, possibly too much. It could be spruced up to make it more modern. This would probably make it more family-friendly too.

    A little bit of history in this quaint, cobbled street with original buildings and quirky shops. Not too far from the cathedral and centre of Norwich.

    A thoroughly engaging walk along the river that flows around the city. Most of the city’s history can be encountered here.

    Victoriana, play area , crazy boating lake, tennis courts, crazy golf, mini golf, mini train, skate park & picnic area and great cafe - dogs welcome. enjoy people watching, wandering or get involved with the activity; allow a few hours if you can. Gets busy during school holidays so parking can get tricky - but it is free!

    We’d have happily paid the modest £8pp entry charge but got in for free with Historic Houses membership- sweet!
    Made all the better by a sunny/warm/dry morning.
    Particularly enjoyed the walled gardens, rhododendron were glorious, water garden and woodland walks. Arboretum was special.
    Small plant sales area stocked choice items - we couldn’t resist.
    We followed this with a lovely lunch at Cafe (separate business/review) which is alongside the car park/garden entrance.
    Strongly recommended- best part of holiday so far.

    An outdoor market with plenty of variety and product selections.
    You can certainly pick up a few bits for all types of budgets.

    Warm and welcoming staff, highly organised and well run establishment. Very clean, excellent covid protocols. We felt very safe and had an excellent evening. We had tried some weeks before the event to book a table in the restaurant but it was already fully booked, so next time I'd book at the same time as booking theatre seats, just to guarantee a table.
    We would highly recommend visiting this theatre for a show and will definitely be going again...tickets already booked 😀
    Plenty of close by parking.
    Bar, restaurant. Booking essential.
