Norwich The City of Dinosaurs up close with a Photographer!

Updated: Jan 9

As we head into the last week of the School Holidays no doubt your running low on ideas on things to do to keep the children entertained for the last few days!


How about a day out in Norwich to see the amazing Dinosaurs for free?!


In case you didn't know there are two opportunities for taking your children to see Dinosaurs in Norwich city centre.


Firstly the amazing Break Charity have their Go Go Discover T-Rex Trail on until the 11th of September. There are 21 stunning Dinosaur sculptures located around Norwich city centre both indoors and outdoors. It's a great activity to do with your children as it gets them active and doing a Dinosaur Hunt gets them to engage in a giant game of eye spy as they get excited looking out for the eye catching Dinosaurs.

Of course being a Professional Photographer and a girl who loves Dinosaurs I just had to do the Trail and photographed every single Dinosaur! I am a Norfolk girl born and bred, so I just love any excuse to explore beautiful Norwich with my camera. The Dinosaurs were a lot easier to get photos of than the little ones in the studio who do not like keeping still! I certainly got my 10,000 steps in the day of my visit, as I was determined to see all 21 dinosaurs in one day! But chips off Norwich city market and yummy treats from The Cuppie Hut helped me to refuel to complete the trail!


My 3 favourite Dinosaurs were (60 Million Years, Afternoon Tea-Rex and Rex).

You can find out more about the Go Go T-rex Trail from Break here and download a map on the site too.


But the Go Go T-rex's are not the only Dinosaurs to see in Norwich, there is an another special visitor all the way from The Natural History Museum in London!


Secondly, you could take a trip to see Dippy the Diplodocus who has been touring around the UK and is in Norwich Cathedral until the 30th of October. There is something simply stunning about entering the Cathedral Nave and having Dippy stand before you against this beautiful backdrop.

If your children want even more Dinosaur fun I offer a unique Dinosaur Photoshoot at the Generations Photography studio, which is only 30 minutes from Norwich. I have a wonderful jungle backdrop with lots of Dinosaurs in and under the trees and I even have a giant T-Rex to join in the fun. You can find out more about my Dinosaur Photoshoot here.

If you have already been on the trail or go and visit the Dinosaurs, I would love for you to share your photos with me. Tag or share with me on my social media platforms.
