Enjoy a Norfolk Easter, Whitsuntide or Spring break to remember!

Visitors to historic Norfolk and its golden coast this Easter will find lots of events and fun activities as well as some breathtaking scenery for family days out. Whether you prefer the towns and cities with their beautiful architecture, shops and cafes or the stunning coast with miles of sandy beaches, coastal walks and traditional seaside attractions there is sure to be something for you.

No matter how long you stay in Norfolk there is always something new to do and discover for visitors of all ages. This spring sees a full programme of lively and fun events to take part in whatever the weather. With a great choice of accommodation for weekends, short breaks or the school holidays it is the perfect time to go and shake off the winter blues. Over the Easter period many of the towns and villages have a well organised and varied list of things for all the family to enjoy. Here are just some of the things you can look forward to:

Banham Zoo, March 31-April 15 - has Easter-themed activities running over the holidays. Get hands-on with some of the egg-citing creatures at the zoo, plus there are special craft sessions, egg-stravagant face paints and an eggsclusive new trail.

Pensthorpe Nature Reserve, March-31-April 15 - guide yourself along the trail with hands-on activities all based around an Easter theme and the diverse range of wildlife at Pensthorpe Nature Reserve. The trails and quizzes are designed with children as well as adults in mind, encouraging the whole family to get closer to nature. There will also be regular interactive activities such as pond dipping and becoming a bug detective.

The traditional Norwich Easter Fair will be held in Chapelfield Gardens between the 5th - 9th April and has all the rides, thrills and spills you could want as well as good old fashioned stalls selling fairground favourites to keep the children happy!
