I thought about doing this as a post about national places to visit while we are all in lock down, but actually, Norwich has so many lovely places to see and things to do that it makes sense to start with a local blog for our fantastic Norwich Mumblers, and you can stay in touch with your local visitor attractions and show them your online support!
This list is not exhaustive, please feel free to let us know more HERE. Don’t forget we have also started a separate page for Online classes.
The Children’s Library at the Forum, Norwich.
We’ve already tried the Bounce and Rhyme session and it’s a lot of fun. Thanks to the staff who make it funny and interesting to watch. They are also live streaming stories and rhymes. You can also download ebooks and e-audio for free by using the apps on their facebook page.
Explore items from the the Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell via google arts and culture. Just pop the Museum name into the search icon and you’ll see historic Norwich objects and find out more about them. The online exhibit is ‘Norwich at work’, a fascinating insight into the shoe and textile industry.
Keep up with the cute animals at Wroxham Barns they all need feeding. Staff are posting new videos regularly. (Check out the pictures of those baby lambs bottle feeding! We’ve done many visits in our time as Maddie’s birthday falls in spring!)
The team at Bewilderwood have designed a week of online activities themed around the treehouse adventure park. You can find it here: Bewilderwood online activities
