With the summer holidays well and truly underway, we're thinking what we can do to get the whole family together, and out of the house.
1. Eaton Park has a great children’s play area, Skate Park, tennis courts and model boating pond, bowls, croquet, pitch and putt and even a few mummy fitness classes, making it one of our favourite places to take the kiddies this summer. There is also plenty of well-maintained space for all the classic family outdoor games, such as rounders, boomerang or even the super fun potato sack race games! Not based in Norwich? Then just head to your local park!
2. Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery is set in a Norman Castle, with multimedia exhibits and galleries, dungeons, as well as imaginative special exhibits - all of which make for a great family day out! Why not let your little ones join in the fun, and dress up for the occasion – they’ll fit right in with our tabards, swords & Norman helmets!
And if your little ones (or even you) are into the latest craze, Pokemon Go, then we have word that one of the rarest Pokemon in the UK, Dratini, has been spotted hanging around Castle Gardens, just opposite Cafe WARING.
3. Café Waring After an exhausting morning out in Norwich Castle, why not pop by Café Waring and enjoy the view of the castle, whilst tucking into a delicious freshly prepared panini, and cake treat for dessert. There’s also a wide range of hot and cold drinks, including yummy summer smoothies! You can also shop our range of children's special and unique goodies in the store if you're wanting to treat your little one.
4. Norwich Puppet Theatre hosts a variety of touring puppetry companies from Britain and overseas, featuring the best of British and international theatre of animation that are perfect for all ages, and the family. Why not let your little ones take their own puppets along, or better still, put on at home afterwards.
5.Alternatively, why not head a little further afield to the Norfolk Coast - why not take a picnic with you to the beach? And the outdoor games, of course! Our Rusty the Fox paper nakins, plates and cups are ideal for taking on days out, and perfect for the little ones, too!
