We went on the ‘Swallows and Amazons’ day trip. Both adults and kids (4 & 9) loved it. Getting to Canoe down the river, have a go at archery and fire making in the woods with lovely people running the whole event. Highly recommended

We got the narrow gauge railway from Coltishall and then canoed back along the river from there. Fantastic way to see a bit of the river that has no motor boats on. Great way to spend an afternoon and the added bonus of finishing at...More
