Welcoming Spring, Mother’s Day, and Easter Celebrations

There’s so much to celebrate and look forward to this month in Norfolk. The arrival of Spring towards the end of the month which means warmer weather, so lots of walking options, along with Mother’s Day and the Easter holidays. Many of the National Trust properties have Easter Egg Hunts, all the pubs, hotels and restaurants have Mother’s Day menus and the Norfolk attractions start to come to life. There are also lots of walks for you to discover! And if you have an event you’d like to promote, this is now possible on our searchable website.

Easter Egg Hunts at Blickling Hall

Blickling Hall is one of the most impressive Jacobean stately homes in Norfolk with extensive grounds and a beautiful house and formal gardens. Managed by the National Trust, this is your chance to explore this wonderful estate when they put on Easter Egg hunts at this time of year, held between 28th March and 14th April. No need to book.

Take a look at their website here for more details.

Mother’s Go Free at Pensthorpe!

You’ll have to be quick, but Pensthorpe Waterfowl Park, just outside Fakenham, is offering the chance for Mums to go free (along with another paying adult of course!) on Mother’s Day. A fantastic chance to discover some unusual animals, wander around the park, explore the gardens and have a very enjoyable day out.

You can read more about Pensthorpe here.

Looking for some walking options?

It’s finally getting warmer (I think!), so why not discover a new walk for yourself. We have quite a few walking options on the website that you might like to browse through, ranging from coastal walks to inland walks and we even have some Norfolk walking guides, so no excuse to get lost!

Check out the walking options here.

Do you have an event you would like to promote?

I’m excited to say that Explore Norfolk UK now has an added search directory to the main website, making it much easier for you to search for what you’re looking for. It’s fairly new so lots of information will be added to it over the coming months, but one of the many things you can do right now is to add an event that you’d like to promote. The only criteria is that the event must be held in Norfolk. I’ll be explaining more about this new addition over the coming months.

Add your event here.

I really appreciate you reading these newsletters and if you know anyone who may be interested to receive these, please feel free to forward it on to them.

Best wishes,

P.S You might like to look at this Norfolk Beaches Handbook which tells you all you need to know about the Norfolk beaches.
