Published: 17/09/2019Norfolk is beautiful all year round and there's always something to do with the family.
- Get your dresses and fascinators out and enjoy a fantastic time at the races in May for Ladies’ Day at Norfolk’s famous Fakenham Racecourse.
- Get a taste of local produce at the Cromer and Sheringham Crab and Lobster Festival. Sample the coast’s freshest catches and even catch your own crustacean.
- Spring sees the return of some colour. See snowdrops at Walsingham Abbey, Bluebells in Foxley Wood and the Yellow Star of Bethlehem in Wayland Wood.
- It’s the event of the Summer. The Royal Norfolk Show is a two-day extravaganza of everything Norfolk related from agricultural displays to local producers.
- Forget the Chelsea Flower Show, head to Sandringham Flower Show instead where displays are visited by the Royals.
- Join in the weekend-long festivities at the Lord Mayor’s Celebration. There’s live music, a 5km run and the flamboyant, traffic-stopping procession.
- Be whisked back in time at the Sheringham and Holt 1940s weekend. Relieve the fashion and entertainment of the wartime years and ride the railway between the two towns.
- The Norwich Science Festival is an educational spectacular with nine days of inspirational exhibits, sensational shows and an abundance of hands-on experiments.
- Celebrate autumn at Gressenhall Farm & Workhouse with their annual Apple Day. Stroll the orchard, sample scrumptious cider and identify your mystery apples.
- The Thursford Collection is home to the world’s largest collection of steam engines and organs, but head there for the famous Christmas Spectacular which you’ll never forget!
- See the seals! There are several seal colonies around the Norfolk coast, but visit Horsey in the winter months when mothers and pups take over the beach.
- Would you brave the Hunstanton Christmas Swim? Take the plunge or watch those brave enough to do so at the icon Christmas Day dip.
