Bringing  family together

In the heart of West Norfolk, hidden in a sea of nature just outside King's Lynn, lies Bawsey Country Park. Originally created by sand quarrying operations, the terrain is undulating, covering over 180 acres including lush woodland and sparkling lakes.

Our aim is to inspire every generation by offering something for the whole family, from young children to grandparents and everyone in between.

Bawsey Country Park is the perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Visit with family or friends and get closer to nature, as you explore the many pathways through the trees, and round the lakes.

We strive, year after year, to develop, love and build a place that will be at the centre of your hearts and remembered fondly through the generations.
