If traversing the waters is not your thing you can simply hike or cycle the many paths or head to the city of Norwich for some shopping and fine dining.
Named a National Park as of 2015, the Broads National Park is a haven for wildlife with more rare and endangered species calling this their home than anywhere else in the UK. The park is made up of seven main rivers, and 63 broads (small lakes) most of which are man-made.
Stay in a quaint B&B, a luxury hotel or rent a cottage, and enjoy the freedom of having everything the Broads has to offer on your doorstep. Just a 2-3 hour drive from London, the Norfolk Broads National Park makes for the perfect weekend getaway destination full of country walks and pub grub.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
