Visitors to the Junior Farm at Wroxham Barns over Easter will be able to see some beautiful birds of prey. Two falcons, a hawk and a kestrel from Broadsview Falconry will be at the popular tourist attraction from Good Friday through to Easter Tuesday, as well as a baby Indian eagle owl. The birds will be at the farm from 10am to 4pm daily, so that visitors can see them up close, and there will be a flying display in the adjacent field at 3pm each day.
Entry to the Junior Farm is £5.75 per person (or £24 for an annual season ticket) and there is plenty more to see and do: customers can bottle-feed the lambs at 11am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm daily, and visit the sheep, goats, donkeys and pigs including Trixie, a Gloucester Old Spot sow, who has recently had 11 piglets. There is also a hen-house where visitors can collect freshly-laid eggs, and a RSPB-approved bird hide overlooking the duck pond.
What’s more, customers up to the age of 10 can enjoy the farm’s indoor children’s play area, Piggy’s Play Sty, at no extra charge. This modern soft play area has a ball-pit, climbing frame, slide, shapes and bouncy toys.
Elsewhere on the Wroxham Barns’ site, there is a funfair, an 18-hole mini adventure golf course, a train and some brand new outdoor play equipment. The funfair, golf and train are individually priced, while the outdoor play area is free.
Wroxham Barns is open from 10am to 5pm daily and offers a range of facilities for adults, too, from a restaurant, coffee shop and brewery to shops, workshops and studios.
