Introduction to the Norfolk Broads

The Norfolk Broads is made up of 120 miles of navigable waterways; a mixture of rivers and wide open Broads (similar to lakes).  There are no locks to navigate and many of the Broads are fairly shallow enabling boats to moor away from the banks in wide open spaces to enjoy fishing, eating a meal, or just the peace and quiet of nature (perhaps with a pair of binoculars).

Boat Tours on the Norfolk Broads

A good way to discover the Broads without any knowledge or boating expertise it to take one of the ferry tours, with commentary, operating from just outside of the Peninsula Marina, within walking distance of the cottage.  These run usually in the afternoons and evenings and some stop in the picturesque village of Horning.  This is an excellent way of learning about places you may later want to visit in a hired day  boat.

Self drive Day / Picnic boats  (Go to Boating tips page)

Of course the most fun is had from “messing about on the river” with family and friends.  There is a large variety of craft for hire, with day boats seating 6 or more passengers, or picnic boats where you can make hot snacks etc.  These can be booked by the hour, half-day, day or even the whole week.  Why not book a boat for the time of your stay and keep it on your mooring right outside the cottage!  Also canoes and rowing boats can be hired.  Click here for river map of River Bure from Wroxham to wroxham Broad.
