Things to do on the Broads

The Norfolk Broads is a fantastic destination for couples, friends and families looking to enjoy everything the region has to offer. What are the best things to do on the Broads? 

Richardson's Boating Holidays asked fans on their Facebook Page for tips and suggestions, and were overwhelmed with the response. Here are the top recommendations...

Antony Swift I'd recommend looking for wildlife with the kids and looking at the St Benet's Abbey ruins at Ranworth, plus going to Wroxham and Potter Heigham. 

Leanne Coupland Stokesby is great if you want somewhere for the kids to burn off loads of energy. It's great for conkers in the Autumn as well.

Stuart Wilkinson There are many different places to visit! The River Ant has some nice wild moorings and stunning scenery if you want tranquillity. Wayford Bridge has the pub and play area for the kids. Irstead is nice and quiet and provides a base for some nice walks on the boardwalk with a viewpoint across Barton. How Hill has the nature trail and the chance of a trip on the Electric Eel through otherwise unnavigable channels.

Andrew Barnes Climb the church tower at Ranworth. What an experience!

Rachael Jennings We always take the walk from Great Yarmouth to Caister car museum. Quite a walk, but well worth it. We also like just swinging around the anchor in a quiet broad, dropping the dinghy down and pootling around photographing the wildlife

Catherine Anthony-Gammon Horning is pretty and has great pubs to moor up beside for lunch or dinner. Ramworth is worth a visit too - it has the Granary shop for essentials and souvenirs, plus The Maltsters pub which does excellent food. Gay's staithe is good if you want peace and quiet and you may spot otters there too.

Lou Webb Powerboat racing at Oulton Broad if you go in-season. We go watch the racing then get a takeaway when we've finished. It's also a lovely big park for the kids to run around.

Jim Gibney Great Yarmouth is a must for me. The fast-moving tides put lots of people off, but it’s easily accessible by bus or train if you don't want to moor there.
