An area protected as a National Park, the Norfolk Broads are an unusual and beautiful area of waterways, lakes, marshes and water meadows.
The main activity here is to take to the water. Whether you take a tour, hire a boat or rent a canoe, the waterways are filled with wonderful flora and fauna and you can travel between inviting waterside towns and villages, with their round church towers sticking up out of the flat landscape and many welcoming pubs.
Out of the water, the area is criss-crossed by trails for walkers and cyclists to explore the quiet countryside. The Broads are also a haven for birdlife and bird-watchers will find this a fascinating place.
