On Friday night we were invited to the preview evening for the amazing The Snowman and The Snowdog Bricklive Tour that launched at Banham Zoo this weekend.
Banham Zoo is the first zoo in the UK to host this new brick trail inspired by The Snowman and The Snowdog. The tour is running until the 5th January 2020 so you’ve plenty of time to pop along and see it.
From the moment we arrived it was just magical. Trees covered in lights everywhere you look, from the carpark guiding you in and as you walk through an archway into Thursford the magic only increases. With animatontric huskies barking their greeting and even more lights than you would have thought possible.
Fielding Cottage Norfolk Holidays has three wonderful rural ‘barn style’ cottages located on a farm at Honingham, just 20 minutes’ drive from Norwich. This is the perfect retreat for celebrating Christmas or New Year where all three barns can be taken together.
You may remember a couple of weeks ago I shared that intu Chapelfield would be hosting some rather large bugs in the centre for a fun and interactive tour. Well we went and enjoyed a sneak peak of the tour on the opening morning so I thought I’d share it with you.
I think we are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. With fabulous coastline, nature reserves and amazing walking pretty much wherever you turn. This summer I can barely think of a day where we haven’t been out exploring it, but all to often I miss huge chunks of what there is on offer as I’m travelling. Greater Anglia agree, which is why they think you should travel by train, where you will always have the best seat (and view) in the house.

Last week we were lucky enough to be invited to a fabulous press day at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse to try out some of their fun summer activities. We had a brilliant day, really good fun and lovely to explore somewhere I haven’t visited for at least 15 years!
This summer we visited Pensthorpe Natural Park for the first time, ridiculous as we are local! It is amazing. Really amazing. We had the best day. There is so much to do we can’t wait to visit again to catch the bits we missed and to repeat our fave bits. I can’t sing its praises enough but I shall try to keep this review a reasonable length, promise.
