Fun things to do at Easter
Easter is upon us and we have a full house for the holidays. We are keeping our fingers crossed with the
weather – we've had sunshine, wind and showers in the past few days so it's anyone's guess.
North Norfolk has a lot to offer all year round but I
thought I would just offer up some special Easter events taking place locally.
Good Friday to Easter Monday has four fun-filled
‘egg-citing’ things to do from storytelling in a magic yurt, an interactive
tile painting workshop, Kiddy Cook in the Old Kitchen or various puzzles and
face painting – all with an Easter theme. Check out opening times and details
One of our guests’ favourite venues, Pensthorpe is putting
on an Easter Eggstravagansa with a special self-guided trail around the site.
Learn about the species that share our natural world and finish off at
WildRootz. Cranmer guests enjoy a special two for one offer on entry – just
check your welcome tray. www.pensthorpe.com.
It may not be the home of the Grand National but Fakenham
Racecourse is much more family friendly with its casual atmosphere and no
formal dress code. Children under 17 are admitted free (must be accompanied by
an adult). Racing on Easter Monday. www.fakenhamracecourse.co.uk.
Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse
Easter Bunnies, Bonnet and Bounce Day – fun day out for all
Not so local but well worth the drive, BeWILDerwood is one
of the most amazing fantasy experiences for the family. Take part in their
‘Bouncing Boggle Bunny Egg Hunt’ from Saturday 28 March – Sunday 12 April. ‘Follow a bunny themed trail, bound down the
bunny tunnel and meet Cedric in the Big Egg. Bounce your way through the
hippity hop with a little Easter gift and settle down to hear the tales of
Cedric and his friends at the story-telling stage. Visit the Big Hat and make
your own ever-so-bonny Boggle bunny outfit. Get your face decorated with a pink
or black nose and some wonderfully wiggly whiskers’.
Our own Herdwick sheep are fed at 9.30 am every morning
(times may vary).
Personally I will be enjoying the weather, visiting my
favourite beach at Overstrand and munching my way through one of Dale’s (The
Chocolate Deli, Walsingham) scrummy handmade Easter eggs.
Have a great holiday.
