East Anglia Transport Museum, Lowestoft

The East Anglia Transport Museum is a unique project, a living museum created to show the development of mechanical transport over the best part of a century. Vehicles of yesteryear can be seen in action, where forgotten sounds of the past are brought back to life. The entrance fee includes rides on 3 different trams and a mini railway. The setting is fantastic and complimented by the lovingly restored vehicles. There is also a café offering tea, coffee, and toasted tea cakes!

Bircham Mill, Kings Lynn

Bircham Windmill stands in the heart of Norfolks rolling fields and provides a really interesting visit. It is still standing proud after 100 years and of the very few windmills which are left, it is the only one in working order in the area which is open to the public. In addition to the windmill there is a family bakery, tearooms, gift shop and child-friendly animals and play area. The surrounding area is great for dog-walking and the tearooms have an excellent selection of cakes and light bites. Make sure you climb to the top, the views are really worthwhile.

Holkham Hall, North Norfolk

Holkham Hall is set in a unique location surrounded by 3,000 acres of rolling parkland rich in wildlife and near to the coast with its famous beach. After remarking at the stunning English Palladian architecture, impressive fine furniture and impressive contemporary collection of sculptures, you can take a stroll (or ride if you bring your bikes!) around the beautiful estate and have chance to get up close to a white fallow deer. After your wondering you can let the children play in the adventure playground or pop into the excellent courtyard café so something to eat.

RSPB Titchwell Marsh Nature Reserve, Norfolk

If you are looking to experience some nature, RSPB Titchwell Marsh is a fantastic place to explore and offers something for all the family. From sandy beaches to lagoons and reedbeds, there is so much to see and do at this popular reserve. Birdwatchers will be in their element, expecting to see many species of ducks, waders, seabirds and geese. In summer, marsh harriers float over the reeds and soar over your head, whilst on the lagoons you will commonly find avocets, gulls and terns. There is also an inside eating area selling snacks and locally made cakes to top it all off!

Village of Thorpeness, Suffolk

Thorpeness was named the ‘Weirdest Village in England’ by ‘Bizarre’ magazine in 2003 – but don’t let this put you off! In 1910 wealthy Scottish barrister, Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie bought some land from north of Aldeburgh to south of Sizewell where he created Thorpeness, a holiday village. Thanks to its quirky buildings including the renowned ‘House in the Clouds’, which is how Ogilvie ingeniously disguised the water tower, it is now a popular day trippers destination. There is also a beach, boating lake and plenty of amenities. If you are near the area and fancy something a little different, make sure you work it into your schedule.
