Perfect for an escape to the countryside, the Norfolk Broads are comprised of more than 100 miles of lock-free waterways. Easy to navigate and ever-popular with boaters keen to take to the water for a few days of watching the scenery roll by, the Broads flow through some of England’s most picturesque scenery.
Peppered with sleepy villages, endless trails and views that change with every turn, the Broads are a peaceful destination for those looking for a break somewhere with plenty to discover and plenty to see. An ideal place for days out as a family, time in the national park is all about long days cycling beside waterways, and quiet walks seeing what you can spot along the way. Whether you’re planning a visit with the whole clan or with that special someone, the Norfolk Broads have a diversity that means there’s a day out for every kind of holidaymaker.
Now, the secret to discovering the Broads in style is to do it by boat. Much of the landscape isn’t accessible by road, which means half the fun of a holiday in the area is that you’ll need to channel your inner adventurer and arrange at least one boat trip to make sure you experience the scenery from the waterways. If the sight of all that water inspires you to see what you can catch you’ll find plenty of quiet spots to indulge in a little fishing during your holiday.
The Broads National Park isn’t just beautiful, it’s also famed for the plants and wildlife you’ll come across as you explore, and it’s home to more than a quarter of some of the rarest species of each in the whole of the UK - so keep your eyes peeled as you make your way through its landscape.
