Wind along Broadland’s waterways and land ways, Naturally

Take your time and find your favourite way across Broadland – by foot or cycle on quiet lanes and trails, or on the water with Stand Up Paddleboards, canoes and cruisers where you might see a sleek otter or catch the flash of a Kingfisher.

The big skies and lovely landscape of golden fields, marshland, feathery reeds and tangled woodlands are a perfect canvas for adventure and relaxation – time to reflect, space to explore, a fabulous opportunity to enjoy a magical break.

Discover curio and antique shops, lovely pubs and eateries for afternoon tea in picturesque villages and idyllic market towns such as Reepham and riverside Reedham, magnificent National Trust Blickling Hall, Museum of the Broads at Stalham, cul-de-sac Heydon, or enjoy a trip on the Bure Valley heritage steam railway.

For families who love all kinds of thrilling creatures head for ROARR!, The Bug Parc, Pettitts Animal Adventure Park, Wroxham Barns and there’s treehouse fun at BeWILDerwood.

Woodbastwick Fur & Feather Woodfordes Brewery Tap

Picture perfect Fur & Feather is the brewery tap for Woodforde’s Norfolk Ales.

How about stargazing at the Dark Skies Discovery Hub at Salhouse Broad or a tour of Woodforde’s Brewery after which can enjoy refreshments at the chocolate box Fur & Feather.

City of Stories Norwich and sweeping beaches are all close by, so Broadland is a perfect place to base yourself.

Broadland is also the centre of the Broads National Park, 125 miles of navigable, lock-free waterways set in beautiful countryside and home to more than a quarter of Britain’s rarest animals and plants, so don’t forget binoculars.

Much of the Broads is accessible with walkways for walkers, cyclists and those with disabilities.

To enjoy the unique rivers and lakes and incredible wildlife, the best way to get around is by boat, becoming immersed in a slower, gentler pace of life. You can hire a day boat – many of them now are electric – or a cruiser for longer trips. Accessible options are available.

Ranworth Staithe, Broads

There’s lots of mooring space at Ranworth and a great view of the Broads from the top of the church.

If you’re not staying on a boat, there are plenty of other accommodation options including cosy lodges, self-catering cottages, luxurious hotels and affordable campsites.

Visit Broadland and follow our beautiful land ways and waterways, Naturally.


Broadland is just two hours by train from London and there’s good public transport within the National Park, including the Bittern Line and Wherry Line trains. See the Greater Anglia route map here.
