It’s bounced around that Norfolk is one of the driest parts of the UK, but let’s not forget that we are still in the UK so we can only expect a bit of rain now and again… or in some cases again and again and again. Whether it’s a light shower or a complete downpour there is no need to let rain stop play. There are plenty of attractions to keep you occupied and dry.
