Murketts Vauxhall is encouraging families to take to the road and make the most of the school break with its Summer of Fun Top Five guide to attractions across the East of England.
With the long holidays stretching ahead, this handy list identifies some of the best places to visit to keep the whole family entertained without breaking the bank. For families in East Anglia, the guide highlights some of the East of England’s gems that are a little off the beaten track or in picturesque locations - making for a scenic and enjoyable road trip.
Mark Smith, group sales manager at Murketts Vauxhall, said: “Going on a day out should be fun from the moment you get in the car, so we wanted to highlight some of the best places to visit during the school holidays. From getting closer to nature to understanding more about our local heritage, this handy guide should offer something for all the family.
“At Vauxhall our range of vehicles is designed to make the journey as enjoyable as possible, so for families looking to upgrade their in-car experience this summer we’d encourage them to visit the showroom to see the spacious Mokka and check out our connected car system, OnStar – available on selected models, which makes entertainment instantly accessible while you’re on the road.”
VAUXHALL SUMMER OF FUN TOP FIVE – EAST OF ENGLAND
Wandlebury Country Park, Cambridge
Located on the Gog Magog Hills, just south of Cambridge, is a welcoming retreat for walkers, nature lovers and a natural adventure playground for younger members of the family. With Texel sheep and Highland Cattle grazing in the grasslands and a whole host of flora and fauna in the woodlands, it’s the ideal place to reconnect with nature.
Blickling Estate, Norfolk
Nobody ever forgets their first sight of Blickling – the birthplace of Anne Boleyn. The breath-taking red-brick mansion and ancient yew hedges sit at the heart of a magnificent garden and historic park. Have fun following the winding paths to discover the animals of Blickling wood in the secret tunnels and challenge the children to find the secret garden.
With its beach and Meare, Thorpeness is the perfect summer day out, with the highlight of the holiday season being the regatta in late August. Be sure to check out the House in the Clouds.
Waxham Beach, Norfolk
Located on Norfolk’s less-visited north-east coast, Waxham beach merges with the neighbouring beach of Sea Palling, providing plenty of place to explore and play.
RSPB Minsmere, Suffolk
This fantastic coastal nature reserve is perfect for all the family. Check out activities and events at the visitors centre and then plan your route to ensure you don’t miss out on the vast array of wildlife in this natural beauty spot.
