Ideas for half term in Winterton on sea, Norfolk

Published on February 12, 2019 by EmmaPunchard

Half term ideas if you are staying in Winterton on sea, East Norfolk

Norfolk’s weather forecast doesn’t look bad for next week. With my kids to entertain too here is my list of things to do:

BeWilderwood is a must. This tree top adventure playground may not be cheap but it is a great day out for children 3 – 12. This year a new attraction is opening ‘Towering Treetop Tangles’ which we can't way to try out. It promises to be a giant wooden structure which children can scramble through to explore the giant flowers in the treetops. The award-winning forest is open all week and weekends there after.  My tips on the best way to enjoy BeWiderwood? Wear trainers, ignore the boat trip on arrival, (rather than queue straight away,  take the boat back at the end of the day, the queue is generally smaller).  Lastly, buy your tickets online.

Norwich Castle will be holding court during half-term with its Kings, Queens & Dirty Rascals week, which will complement the new exhibition launching on 9 February, Square Box on the Hill. It’s an amazing Norman castle and is well worth a visit. Then check out the Norwich lanes, or covered market and get yourself a coffee from  Strangers Coffee House – definitely the best coffee in Norwich. Or sample the amazing fish and chips from the award winning Grosvenor fish bar opposite.

The National Trust’s Sheringham Park is free to visit, just pay for parking if you are a non member. On Tuesday and Wednesday next week you can learn how to track wild animals and even leave with a plaster-cast print. Ideal to add a little interest for the kids on a family walk. More details are found here.

Winterton offers a great beach, café, pub and play area. This will definitely keep us busy for a day. But for me it’s always nice to check out somewhere else on the coast. This half term we are going to walk the circular walk from from Cromer to Overstrand. If you Google this you get a pdf of the walk (but I can't attach it here) and sample the chips and other lovely food on offer from the Bucket List in Overstrand or Cromer.

If the weather is poor and fingers and toes crossed it won’t be, I’d recommend swimming in Yarmouth's Marina centre, they generally run inflatable swimming sessions throughout the holidays or Yarmouth's Sea Life Centre or Jump Warehouse.

If you have any more ideas I’d love to hear from you. Enjoy  xx
