From today, outdoor gatherings and sport is back. As covid restrictions start to ease gradually, we can meet up outdoors as two households or within the rule of 6. See the full Coronavirus Roadmap on the Norwich Mumbler website.
On our dedicated Days Out page, there’s plenty you can see and do, within the current guidelines.
There’s a great selection of walks around Norfolk of course! We live very near the city so we are lucky enough to enjoy local walks around Norwich Cathedral or along the river feeding the ducks and watching the canoes. When we’re allowed to travel further afield, our favourites include Pensthorpe to see the beautiful gardens and birds and also Strumpshaw Fen. Have a look here Walks and The Great Outdoors for more ideas.
From today, children and adults can get back to organised outdoor team sports. So the football pitches, cricket pitches, tennis courts, basketball courts, sailing clubs and outdoor swimming pools are open.
Here are some Sports Activities ideas for you. As always, please check ahead with the venue or organisation for their own opening days and times.
There is also a Team Sports area on the Adult Fitness section of the Norwich Mumbler website which includes team sports for adults and children.
Most farms and zoos in Norfolk are aiming to reopen on 12th April. We have a great range near us, with Banham Zoo, Africa Alive! Thrigby Hall and two SeaLife Centres among others, have a look at our Farms and Zoos page. You’re never far from seeing amazing animals here. For my family, we do enjoy feeding the baby lambs from bottles in spring at Wroxham Barns.
Yes, we’re completely spoilt for nature in Norfolk and that’s why we love it. Norfolk is possibly most famous for the man-made Broads, a National Park with over 125 miles of navigable lock-free waterway. You don’t have to take a boat out though, there are plenty of walks to enjoy even with a buggy, and we’ve put a handy list together here: Norfolk Broads and Nature
This is my happy place, and there are so many different ones to choose from. Cromer is great for the pier, the quaint town centre, and lots of activities. Or Mundesley is quiet and barely touched, great for some peaceful time. Try Great Yarmouth and Gorleston for its amazing stretch of sand and of course, the amusements (when open). Or there’s Holkham with its incredible views, large Norfolk skies and perfect beach huts. When travel restrictions are completely lifted, you’ll find me at the beach…
