See and do

Picture of Elm Hill in historic City of Norwich We're often asked what atrractions and activities there is to see and do in Norfolk. In fact, there are far too many things to see and do to mention on this page so there's a whole section devoted to activities and attractions - just take a look down the left-hand margin until you come across an activity that interests you - although we've only been able to touch the surface of the myriad of attractions and places to see and visit whilst staying Norfolk.

The landscape offers huge variations as one progresses across the county - the unique Breckland, cultivated fields, the huge expanse of Thetford Forest, deciduous woodland, the Norfolk Broads, seaside towns, a huge choice of beaches, picturesque villages and market towns, as well as the impressive and bustling city of Norwich.

Whether you want to go sightseeing, walking, cycling, play golf, go horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, bird watching, on a nature trail or ballooning, visit a farm park, a zoo, an aquarium, a funfair, a castle, a cathedral (Norwich has two!), a National Trust property or a museum, explore old churches or find a bargain at the many antique shops and auction rooms or just laze around, Norfolk can cater for you.

Norfolk offers all this and more, and in a beautiful and diverse landscape whose inhabitants have, for much of the time, an enviably relaxed approach to life.

Whilst life is, for the most part, unhurried and unsophisticated, it would be wrong to conclude that Norfolk is lacking in culture. When it comes to performing arts, for example, Norwich, boasts four theatre venues and devotees of the visual arts have access to 26 cinema screens. There are also four museums, several art galleries, including, at the UEA, the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, in Norwich alone.

If you're looking for something more energetic take a look at the page on fun and games, or, for the youngsters, child's play for a few ideas - the choice inludes ten-pin bowling alleys, swimming in an Olympic-size or smaller swimming pools, a dinosaur park, sailing, canoeing, cycling and even hot air ballooning.

For a more relaxing time there are some very good country pubs, with a warm atmosphere and good food and some top quality restaurants. Or you might take a stroll around some of the lovely gardens or visit a stately home, or perhaps visit a farm park or zoo or spend a day at the races.

If you want to venure a little further afield we've also included information about some of the natural beauty and attractions of North Suffolk, including its coastline all within an hour or so of White Lodge Farm, as is the lovely city of Cambridge.

We've tried on our website to give a flavour of what is available in and around Norfolk. You'll soon see from this that the size of Norfolk, and the variety of activities available, mean that White Lodge Farm is about as conveniently situated as you could want to be to explore all that Norfolk and the surrounding area has to offer.

If you look at our suggestions and find that your tastes and interests lie elsewhere, or you have specific questions, please contact us and we'll do our best to help you.

Picture of Castle in historic City of Norwich Please bear in mind, before making any plans which involve the use of another facility or attraction, that you should ensure that they will be open at the time of interest to you and that they can meet your requirements. In some cases pre-booking may be required, some facilities are closed on certain days and impose restrictions on others. Also, what's on offer may have changed since we last updated the research on which information on this website was based.

This site includes telephone numbers for, and links to, some of the many attractions.
