Looking for something to do in Norfolk this December? Well look no further. We have done the hard work for you and hunted down the best things to do so you can really get into the Christmas spirit for the big day.

Where Should I Take the Family?

There really is an endless amount of things to do in Norfolk this Christmas. From evenings out to family fun days. We have picked just a few of our favourites.

  1. Roarr adventure xmas perfect for children of any age, including those of us who are still a child at heart. With a Santas grotto for the kids and ice skating for the adults it really is fun for the whole family. Plus after 4:30pm you can get in for free!
  2. You can't get more Norfolk than setting sail down the Broads. Take a festive Santa Cruise a long the broads starting at Wroxham. While under 3s get a goodie bag and a visit from Santa the adults all get a glass of mulled wine to enjoy while cruising the broads and watching nature go by. 
  3. The fun packed Norwich Winter Wonderland is back for another year. Rides, food and skating there's something for everything.


Where Should I Take the Biggest Christmas Fan?

We have picked the creme de la creme of Christmas fun. You can't walk away from these events without experiencing pure Christmas Joy.

  1. The Thursford Christmas Spectacular. A yearly tradition that is worth the hype. With a winter wonderland walkthrough and the most magical and festive show it is truly the perfect way to spend a December evening.
  2. With so many Pantomimes going on across the county you're spoilt for choice. From Great Yarmouth to Kings Lynn you have no excuses. The biggest in the county would be Norwich Theatre Royal's Sleeping Beauty: The Fairy's Tale with Coronation Street’s Beverley Callard and West End Star Millie O'Connell in the roles of the Evil Queen and Sleeping Beauty respectively it's one you won't want to miss.
  3. Ever heard of a Christmas circus? Well until the 7th January you can experience just that. At Great Yarmouth's Hippodrome their circus and water spectacular has a festive twist.
