BeWILDerwood Boggle Boat 3


Adventure Awaits at BeWILDerwood

When was the last time you spent the day with a Crocklebog or a Thornyclod? When did you last listen to the tuneful call of the Parasquawk or have a picnic with a Hippopotamuddle? BeWILDerwood is a place where true adventure waits, where you can swoosh down slides, whoosh across wobbly wires and teeter around in the tree tops. To find out more about this enchanted, award-winning, family friendly forest has to offer, take a look at this week's guest post from BeWILDerwood.

BeWILDerwood is a wild and imaginative adventure park with magical treehouses and a hint of intriguing characters, bringing a curious difference to the Norfolk Broads. The setting for the book, 'A Boggle at BeWILDerwood' by local children's author Tom Blofeld, BeWILDerwood is a wonderful, mystical land of brave, adventurous creatures who you may never see anywhere else in our world.

In 2016, BeWILDerwood was voted Overall winner in the Primary Times Reader Star Awards as well as the hotly contested Family Attraction category and the winner of the Outdoor Play category. More recently, BeWILDerwood was awarded a certificate of excellence by TripAdviser being rated outstanding by over 888 visitors! The 18-acre adventure park is filled with zip lines, slides, mazes and lots of climbing through magical tree houses. And whilst the Telegraph rates it as one of the top destinations to visit with under 16 years old in the UK, ALL the family can join in the fun.

Easter at BeWILDerwood2
