Norwich Castle is already a firm favourite of ours. I’ve been visiting since I was a child and we’ve loved watching it change and evolve over the years. It’s now a super easy day out for us to enjoy with L, it’s got a bit of everything and we can always find something to do that suits his mood. If it’s checking out the animals in the natural history section, riding a chariot with the Iceni or learning about WW2 we can do it.Continue reading Meeting the Vikings at Norwich Castle

Recently L and I spent an amazing day at Holkham Country Fair. We were guests for the day and had Vice Presidents tickets, so had a lovely base to explore from and go back to when wanted a bit of a break. We had so much fun and will certainly be returning for the next fair.
What was there
There was so much at the fair. Amazing displays in the centre ring, plenty of shopping, a fairground, food village, vintage cars and tractors, animals and more. We literally didn’t manage to see everything and were there for 5 hours. All of this with the stunning Holkham Hall as your backdrop, we couldn’t have asked for a better day out.Continue reading Holkham Country Fair
