Norwich is great for families at any time of year – whether you are looking to entertain little ones at Easter, summer, Christmas or frankly, 365 days a year. From toddlers to teenagers, if you are looking for things to do in Norwich, the city has something for all ages.

Here are some of the reasons why Norwich is so family friendly…

Variety – with a variety of shops, shopping centres, beautiful buildings, things to do, Norwich Market and beautiful places for a stroll like Elm Hill, there is lots on offer in Norwich, not to mention green spaces. There’s lots of lovely spots to sit and people watch, dine alfresco or just get away from it all with a book, have a picnic or meet friends. The Plantation Gardens are a great place to spend a couple of hours or two and are within walking distance of the city centre

Norwich attractions – from Norwich Theatre to Norwich Castle, museums, Norwich Cathedral, the Puppet Theatre and much more, there’s so many places the whole family will love exploring, be inspired and learn about history.

A gateway to beautiful Norfolk – as well as all the amazing things that Norwich has to offer, there are so many wonderful attractions and beauty spots that are just a short car, train or bus ride away. The Norfolk Broads have over 125 miles of lock-free waterways set in beautiful countryside, and Norfolk has so many beautiful and award-winning beaches.

Creative city – Norwich was designated a UNESCO City of Literature in 2008 and is a city full of creativity and culture.

Family friendly experiences are everywhere – family friendly restaurants, tea and coffee shops, facilities… Norwich also feels safe and is full of friendly people. There’s events like the Norfolk & Norwich Festival and we can’t wait for Break’s GoGoDiscover T.rex trail!

It is beautiful at any time of day – with late night shopping, a buzzing atmosphere and lots of events all year round, Norwich is great whenever and whatever time you visit.
