We were pleasantly surprised to find this on our doorstep. Very informative and interesting. Down side is its pricey for whats on offer but for a one off on a nice day its a good way to kill a few hours.

Always visit for one full day in the summer holidays to take advantage of all the activities on offer. Bikes. Canoes. Arts and Crafts. And best of all feeding the birds. Nice walk too.

Lovely for children to burn some energy but I do find it a bit pricey for what it is. £20 for myself and my daughter just to get in, as beautiful as it is I can't warrant it sadly

Went on a family day out as it was a bit chilly for the beach and had a great day, spent nearly 5 hours here. Play areas, wildlife by continent and ability to feed the birds. Has a... More

Having visited the Norfolk Wetland Trust this was extremely disappointing. Apart from a lack lustre Easter letter hunt for the kids and some pond dipping and creative zone the entire experience was a let down.
