North Norfolk Attractions - Latest update

With the latest announcement by the Government please be aware that attractions will be closed and many events cancelled from Thursday 5 November through to Wednesday 2 December.
Please check with directly venues and event organisers, even if the event is still on our website.


Things may be a little different but you can still be sure of a great time by planning your day out in advance and pre-booking your visit. There are measures in place to keep everyone safe while having fun. 

At many attractions, there is now online (or by phone) pre-booking of tickets for specificed time slots to manage numbers. Also, you will see markings and signs at attractions to help with social distancing and flow of people around the venue.

At payment points in shops and cafes there will be clear screens, and don't forget your card for contactless payments. Where there are cafes, it will mainly be for take away. There will be regular cleaning and staff with face visors and masks, keeping safety and hygiene top of mind.

For extra peace of mind, keep an eye out for the UK-wide industry standard mark, We're Good to Go, at attractions (and other venues); this means you can be reassured that Government and public health guidance has been adhered to. 

To make it easier we have a snapshot below about our amazing attractions but please make sure you click-through to each attraction's website for the latest information so you know before you go.
Now all you've got to do is decide where to go next!

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure
SEALIFE Hunstanton


North Norfolk is home to a huge range of award-winning family-friendly outdoor and indoor attractions, to be enjoyed whatever time of year you visit, come rain or shine. There really is something for everyone.

Take a journey back in time aboard a steam railway, explore the grounds of a magnificent 18th-century stately home and enjoy a feast in the park or travel back even further back to the dinosaur age. Visit a miniature world with model railways, a Lego city and interactive flight and train simulators.

Learn some interesting facts about wildlife conservation and see the exotic creatures of Asia and South America and from the sea. Watch expert local craftsmen revive traditional skills and browse around independent shops where you can buy the works of local artisans.

Unwind on the beautiful Norfolk Broads, Britain’s magical waterways, or stroll through peaceful gardens. For family adventure, take the children to one of the many themed family adventure parks where you can visit farm animals, zip through tree tops and jump upon giant pillow airbags!
