Group Days Out in Norfolk and Suffolk

You may choose to visit us at Seacroft Holiday Village as a group – a holiday is always more fun with friends! – and there’s plenty of fantastic activities and team-led events on-site to get involved with. You could challenge members of your group to a bowls tournament, or go head-to-head in snooker! We also have a full and lively evening entertainments programme until late, so there’s never a dull moment! That being said, there are some fantastic opportunities for group days out in Norfolk and Suffolk to take advantage of, from seeing the seals at Blakeney Point to a night at the races with Yarmouth Stadium!


Blakeney Point Seal Trips

Whilst around an hour’s drive from Seacroft, the best way to see Norfolk’s thriving seal population is on one of the boat trips from Blakeney Point. Beans Boats specialise in boat trips to see the seals, and have been operating in Blakeney Harbour for over 50 years, and have 6 licensed boats in a variety of sizes from 12 to 50 – meaning they are able to accommodate different sized groups without having to share with other passengers, and make your trip to see the seals a personal one!

Seal spotting is great for group days out in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Bure Valley Railway is a 45 minute journey one way, with places to stop off along the way and explore, this is the perfect relaxed group day out. With a café at the Aylsham station, you could stop for a spot of lunch before boarding the steam train for the return journey to Wroxham.
