We all enjoyed the ride (there and back),
but especially Chip, who thoroughly loved the tunnels!
We arrived in Wroxham around lunchtime, expecting to maybe have a pub-type lunch, but the chids were thrilled to find a McDonalds ~ the first we'd seen all holiday! So MaccyD's it was ;)
We had to decide what to do next. It was a bit chilly and a walk along the broads did not really appeal too much to any of us. The children spotted a toy shop and it did look inviting, so in we went and some of them spent their holiday/birthday pennies ~ mostly on Playmobil, but the shop really did have a massive selection of toys. It was quite lovely :D
We still had just over an hour to kill until the return train and had spotted Wroxham Minature Worlds on our walk into town. We thought we'd take a look, as Paul and the big boys love model railways. Initially we thought it was going to be a bit too expensive on top of the cost of the train ride, but actually it wasn't, because we all got in on one 'family ticket' which was for 2 adults + all their children! It's always a bargain for us when places do that, but they are few and far between. Anyway, we would highly recommend it as a place to kill an hour or so ~ the displays were incredible and it's soon to play host to the largest 00 gauge model railway layout in the world...(probably open by now).
