My husband and I visited Wroxham Barnes with our 21 month old toddler last weekend, in search of something to keep him (and us) entertained. It was a typical British summer day with lovely sunshine one minute followed by a downpour of rain the next.
Wroxham Barnes is located outside of Wroxham and is easy to find as you drive out of the town with good road signs. If your travelling to Norfolk Norfolk, passing through Norwich and Wroxham it would make a good stopping of point.
There is a large car park close by the old barn, so parking and getting a toddler out of the car and into Wroxham Barnes was easy. On entry the first thing you see is the Garden Centre (LeGrice Rose Shop & Plant Centre).
Just as we got to the entrance the rain started so we made a quick dash to the restaurant. When you’ve got a toddler it’s always a relief to find that they’ve got good quality high chairs and they are child friendly. We got seated quickly and ordered sausage and mash from the menu and some drinks. Service was fast and efficient. If you didn’t want a full meal they also had an excellent selection of cakes and coffee.
Toilets were outside across the small courtyard and contained baby changing facilities.
After lunch the rain had dried up and we explored the numerous small stores and the gift shop before heading to the children’s play area.
There’s a really good crazy gold course for older members of the family.
I felt our toddler was just a little bit too young for the train and the rides but he had a great time watching. He stood and watched the train and the rides fascinated him as they went around and he loved watching the slightly older children. We’ll certainly be making a return visit in a few months time to let him try out some of the rides himself. They also have a Junior farm where children can see the animals.
