1. A trip to Eaton Park  

One of Norwich’s most historical parks, Eaton Park is open 365 days a year and entry to the park is free. 

Once inside there are 80 acres to enjoy which include a café, a boat pond, crazy golf and putting green, playground, skatepark, outdoor table tennis and more.

And the park even has a miniature railway for families of all ages to ride on at a small cost.
