plenty to do & see lots of restaurants & pubs to visit a good day out driving the hire boats along the broads
I traveled to norfolk during the summer with a large family. We had decided to go to the broads based on the brochures we'd seen. We went to the Broads on a Saturday at about 3pm which was a mistake as we should have went there early as it gets packed really quickly and just finding a car parking space... More
I have just been sitting on my boat on South Walsham Broad watching an Otter for the past hour, it caught a fish then went ashore and ate it, brilliant!!! Anyone interested in wildlife should take a boat on the Broads in the winter and very slowly chug along watching on the river and banks.
You can travel the whole area of the Broads, Northern and Southern by Boat, that is around 140 miles of waterway, every area is slightly different, narrow rivers and small broads, to large rivers and large broads. Loads of places to moor and pubs to visit, Ranworth Broad has a nature visitor centre. In the summer months there are lots... More
The best way to enjoy the broads is to have a day boat out, so that you can see the wildlife close to. The village of Wroxham is popular for renting boats out. Or you can enjoy a couple of hours on board a paddle boat which meanders up the river to Salhouse and Ranworth broads.
great way to spend a few hours, take some bread along to feed the ducks, the kids will love it, very relaxing.
enjoying a nice day out on the river we moored up at the berney arms hoping to have a drink and a meal. It was a Saturday afternoon and there were12 of us. When entering the pub there was a smell like smokey logs burning although there was no fire and it was the middle of august. The whole place... More
Wow this national park has to be a jewel of the British Isles. No matter what time of year you arrive it is always beautiful. Fishing in The Winter with wonderful Walks and Lovely welcoming Pubs with Log fires burning. The Spring is delightful with an abundance of sweet smelling bluebell wood to explore and too many restaurants serving great... More
The major difference between The Broads and The Lake District is that it is possible to visit each and every Broad by river, whereas in The lake District, boaters have to remain on the one chosen Lake. Obviously the scenery in the Lakes is magnificent, with mountains visible everywhere. 'Norfolk is very flat' - to quote Noel Coward, but the... More
Decided to take the family on the broads, awkard ages (13 and 15) so off we went two adults, two teenagers and a dog. What a fab time, there was time for fishing at each port of call, the dog had fun and even the stroppy teeanage daughter enjoyed it (although i dont think she would quite admit it) the... More
