Junior Farm with the New Piggery and Piggy’s Play-Sty, The Children’s Farm and the “Championship” Mini-Adventure Golf Course will keep our younger visitors entertained.

Wroxham Barns has been the ownership of the Russell Family ever since it was purchased as a derelict farm back in 1982


The idea for Wroxham Barns was born in 1982 with the vision to transform rundown agricultural buildings into a centre for showcasing crafts.

Restoration and conversion of the barns began in January 1983, helped by a £20,000 grant from the English Tourist Board, and we officially opened on May 24,1983.

The children’s funfair was added in 1988 and Junior Farm opened in 1992.

Amongst the crafts showcased through the years are spinning, batik, bookbinding, basketmaking, furniture-making, lacemaking, needlecraft, woodturning, minerals and jewellery, glassblowing, painting and printing.
