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.

Just visited here whilst on holiday in Great Yarmouth - had a fantastic time! I just want to say to those reviewers who say it's expensive to get in - how much do you think it costs to feed and house these animals to the excellent standard here? And pay the staff? And run the cafe and shops? Personally I... More

All the potatoes were well cooked, crispy skins and fluffy middles. Side salad and a good amount of fillings. Lots of nice cakes to try but we didn't this time.... More

For the record, admission to Wroxham Barns is free, you can enjoy our studios, workshops, courtyards, picnic and outdoor play area. Admission to Junior Farm is £6.50 for all visitors aged 2 and over.

Took my four young grandchildren here today, they loved it! Plenty of amusements for them and reasonably priced. All the staff were very friendly and polite. Plenty of free parking and close to Wroxham

Thanks for sharing. We completely understand your comment about the cost of visiting regularly and think we have the answer. Why don’t you buy a season ticket? They cost £37.50, last for 13 months, you get 10% off all food and drink everytime you visit, two free guest passes worth £13 and 10% off birthday parties. Visit three times in... More

Thanks for sharing. Noted the thought that during the school holidays we do welcome many families, it can be a good idea to maybe lunch a little later. It is always worth booking a table (you can call us on 01603 777106 or even make a reservation as soon as you arrive). More

Was visiting family in Norfolk and thought we would pop into Wroxham barns for a few hours. Decided to play mini golf which was really fun! I believe it was around £4 each but it lasted about an hour! Have eaten in the restaurant and the food was really nice! Would visit here again!
