Finally, make sure you include the Sandringham Estate on your itinerary; one of the Royal Family's homes, you can visit part of the house and learn about its history, architecture and gardens.
Head for the coast
Houghton is only a short drive from the beautiful Norfolk coastline, packed with beaches and attractions to keep kids of all ages amused. The Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary is an aquarium with a difference; as well as the usual tanks filled with fish and sea creatures, the centre is also home to a seal rescue centre where you can see seals which are being rehabilitated for their return to the wild. If you want to see seals in their natural habitat, take a boat trip out into the North Sea from Blakeney Point or visit Blakeney nature reserve. Here you can try to spot local seabirds and enjoy a stroll along the Norfolk coast.
Enjoy Norfolk's attractions
The unique Thursford Collection is a museum dedicated to steam engines, organs, and even fairground rides. You can even take a ride on this museum's exhibits, including an old-fashioned carousel, or enjoy the twice-daily concerts on a steam powered Wurlitzer organ. Bircham Mill, the only working windmill in this part of Norfolk, is now also a fascinating museum where you can learn about the role of mills in Norfolk's history and enjoy the spectacular view from the top of the building.
Head a little further north to the village of Caley Mill, and you can spend some time at the unusual attraction Norfolk Lavender, a garden centre devoted to lavender and other herbs; take a guided tour to learn about the benefits of their plants and then take some of their products back to your Houghton lodging.
