Swimming is always popular, with choices to make between the newly refurbished Phoenix Pool in Bradwell or the Broadland Sports Club at Flegg.

Trampolining at Jump Warehouse or Quasar laser games are great to get the adrenalin pumping.  

Indoor play centres with slides and ball pits for the children can be found in Great Yarmouth, Hemsby, Caister-on-Sea and Gorleston-on-Sea, so its unlikely you'll be very far away from one of them if that's what the kids want to do. Most have comfortable areas nearby where parents can sit and relax.

Less hectic indoor attractions include the Sea Life Centre or the cinemas in Great Yarmouth or Gorleston and a choice of museums in the heritage quarter.
