Wroxham Barns is one of Norfolk's leading tourist attractions. With its accent firmly on quality and with strong green credentials, it manages that really rather rare thing - of appealing to different ages. Grown-ups enjoy pottering around the shops and workshops, often chatting to the artists themselves or stopping to watch a craftsman create something unique. With a wood turner, stained glass specialist and Chris Hutchins from Norfolk Sketches, you will find the gift that is just that bit special. Fashion lovers should seek out the Gallery where labels such as Seasalt, Ness and Steilmann are on offer along sidehand bags, scarves, hats and more. And Sugar and Spice offers quirky children's pieces which are much more fun than items offered in the High Street. Foodie lovers are especially well catered for as the Pantry is packed with delicious food, much sourced locally so you can stock up your own store cupboards with jams, chutneys, oils,wines and more.

This shopping outlet has many craft and food shops which are great as some of them have local produce such as honey, meat and plants. It's a good place to shop if you are looking for something different. There are ice cream kiosks, restaurant for those that want anything from coffee, cakes to full roast dinners and an cafe for...

Somewhere different to call into whilst passing. Some great local businesses. The home made fudge is a must.

Been meaning to visit here for years and just found out it was dog friendly (and with a covered area in the café for dogs) so that was a definite bonus. Shops and garden centre were lovely, particularly the farm type shop but overall it lacked a bit of atmosphere. Maybe that changes in the summer when there are more... More

We visited here several times over the last five years and still go back on a regular basis. You can browse to your hearts content and there is never any pressure on you to buy anything. Plenty of individual shops selling a wide selection of goods. Great play area for the kids too.

We called here having had fond memories from previous visits and found that it was nothing like as good as we remembered it - it was distinctly average and we would not go out of the way to return. Very sad.

This review has taken the wind out of our sails. Two things….I guess you are reading this because you are thinking of visiting us. One request, take a moment to read a few reviews and then decide. Our website is pretty helpful too, also our facebook page. But back to Sue G. We need to know more, as we feel... More

Disappointed that only two shops allowed dogs despite they advertise they are dog friendly. Average attraction.

We welcome all reviews whether good or not so good. We always try to learn when we have got it wrong. The only time we struggle with reviews is when they are incorrect or misleading. And this is one. To be brief and clear. We welcome dogs to Wroxham Barns but there are a number of areas where dogs are... More

We visited here for a couple of hours on the way to the broads, while on holiday. Our party included a wheelchair user and the whole area was totally accessible. Although we enjoyed walking around the individual shops and particularly the scrummy pig shop where we bought some very tasty looking chutneys and cheese. But the big down side was... More

Thank you very much for your review. There is much that is very positive about this review and that’s really appreciated by us. But the main thrust of this review is about the “cost of the lunch”. Whenever we have a comment about value, we ask “compared to where?”. We try hard to deliver best value but we will have... More

We come here regularly as were seasons ticket holders, the staff are friendly and accommodating, there is plenty to see and do. The restaurant is nice serving fresh food with plenty of choice. It's clean, has good car parking and there is something for all the family!
