2015 Tour of Britain in Broadland
The country's top cycling event is coming to Broadland in September!
Everyone can enjoy the great outdoors in Broadland. With footpaths and cycle routes that take you through woodlands, parks, broads and heaths, the gentle nature of the countryside and low rainfall makes it an ideal area for families and those who love the outdoors.
Anyone looking for a greater challenge can spend a day (or more) walking or cycling Marriott's Way and the Bure Valley Path. At a distance of some 35 miles, it is more of a test than you might think.
A great destination for walking, Aylsham is part of the Walkers are Welcome UK network. Long distance trails and shorter walks radiate from this vibrant market town to all parts of Norfolk.
With its many historic buildings, romantic landscapes, medieval buildings and gothic chapels, Broadland has inspired many authors and artists. It is a place where fairy tale love stories started and Tudor tragedies played out, a place of folklore and ghost stories, interest and intrigue.
But it is also filled with bustling market towns and villages, boasting quality independent retailers. A stress-free shopping experience awaits you in Acle, Aylsham and Reepham, with free parking and a warm, friendly welcome from helpful staff who know their products and their area.
Browse on market day, let yourself loose at the auctions, or visit the many farmers' markets, filled with produce from some of Norfolk's best farms. Support our local businesses and our Buy in Broadland campaign further by relaxing in one of our local restaurants or pubs. Serving everything from haute cuisine to fish and chips, your taste buds will be tantalised.
