BeWILDered in the Wood


As the rains didn't arrive as expected, we decided to venture out to Norfolk (my goodness, that's twice in just eight days). As a special birthday treat we went off on a family day out to BeWILDerwood, a new adventure park in the Norfolk Broads.


We loved the creative features that gives the park its character, especially the twiggles' little houses.




The Treehouse structures were fantastic and were suitable for the smaller children and us big kids alike.







Some moments were reminiscent of "I'm a Celebrity..."



Some structures were absolutely magical...



...with great interiors...(and no comments about the self-portrait please)...




The ride back to the car park was interesting...



Such a great time was had by all, we even bought the book about a Boggle at BeWILDerwood

BeWILDerwood is fab. At first glance, the entrance fee seemed expensive: £10 per person, applicable also to children aged 5 and over (so no discounts for kids). However, once you are in, unlike amusement parks, there is no extra charge even for the boat ride (which if you wanted to, you could go on several times over). There are some snack points which sell drinks, rolls, muffins & cakes, but there's nothing stopping you taking a picnic.

We stayed there for a couple of hours, but older children would probably want to stay longer. I'd like to go up again, but on one of the dates when they have organised activities such as storytelling.

If travelling from Bury though, it's wise to allow about 1 hour & 25 minutes rather than 1 hour which is advertised on the leafets, unless you're going by motorcycle ;-)
