Families will find lots to do in this beautiful little town. One place for families to spend the day is Abrahams Bosom. You can head out on the water in any number of boats. They have canoes that seat anywhere from one to four people. Or you can head out on the lake in a row boat. Once you're done paddling the waters head over to one of the large professional trampolines, each of the eight has a coach to assist you while you bounce. You can then head over to the pool room and have a family tournament on one of the three tables. Break for a picnic in one of their free picnic areas before heading off to the crazy and target golf.
If you are interested in heading out into Wells Harbor then you can do it on the oldest sailing ship out there. Built in 1899 the North Sea Klipper is moored in the Wells Harbor. Now known as the Albatros, this ancient ship can be chartered for trips out into the Harbor.
For those who are interested in seeing some of the nature of Wells, head out to Blakeney Point. This National Nature Reserve is a great place to see native birds and other wild life. During a boat trip you might even get to see some common grey seals. If you go during the summer months, mainly July and August, you might even get to see a few seal pups as well.
The Eceni Study Center is an interesting attraction. Here you can explore an authentic Iron Age Celtic Village. This used to be the home of the Eceni Tribe. Visitors can move through the homes of the native tribe, view their artifacts, and see what life might have been like for Queen Boudicca and her people. It's an interesting stop during your stay in Wells.
