Taking a trip along the Norfolk Broads

The Norfolk Broads are a great place to find peace and quiet given the many different activities that all take place amidst some stunning natural scenes. If you have active kids, you may want to think about hiring bikes and exploring the many different cycle trails and tow path trails that surround the area.

One the other hand if you and the children enjoy spending time out on the water then you might want to spend a day learning how to sail or consider hiring a canoe trip to get right out into the middle of nature. There are plenty of birds around that are native to Britain so make sure that you take out a minute to see the different sights with a set of binoculars.

Another great holiday location is Wroxham Barns which is a great family attraction. Mothers can spend their time shopping throughout the various gourmet food stores, fashion boutiques, and craft stalls. Younger children may enjoy watching the local craftsmen making stained glass, pottery, and sculptures.

If one particular artist catches your eye you can even commission a piece from him or her so that you get the perfect souvenir from your family holiday. Of course, you want to make sure that the kids get to see other residents of Wroxham Barns as well.

For instance the junior farm also offers plenty of chances for children to care for the animals and pet them. Children love feeding and petting farm animals like cows, donkeys, guinea pigs, and ferrets so this ought to be one of the top highlights of the trip for them.
