The Broads, Norwich

(4.4/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Visit Britain’s magical waterland, a series of interconnected rivers and lakes. The Broads have been a boating destination since 1878, so hire a boat and set sail. If you’d prefer to have someone captain for you, take a guided boat tour of the area. Look out for wildlife, such as waterfowl and otters. On dry land there are many walking and cycling routes that follow the rivers through scenic countryside. Stop for a drink and some food in one of the many waterside pubs and restaurants.

  • Beautiful place to go and relax in your boat, or even by the side of the river with a pint of beer. Not a place for hurry-up, a place for slow-it-down. Great family atmosphere here
  • Beautiful rivers and scenery. Great pubs for lunches and dinners. A great place to visit at anytime of year.
  • The place is unique for its flat landscape , channels, windmills, and footpaths. It is a quiet place for long and peaceful. walks with picturesque scenes.
  • It's fun and relaxing at the same time, the weather is a factor though, it needs to be right. Long hot sunny days are an absolute nono. The ideal weather is overcast with the chances of showers. If it gets hot, fat blokes take their shirts off so cooler is obviously much better. Try not to crash into a 'private boat' the slightest scratch will result in a 4 figure claim. Have fun though. :)
  • Love the water then you will love this place. So many boat hire company out there
