Boating Holidays on the Norfolk Broads

The Norfolk Broads is the ideal location for a boating holiday. There are no locks so cruising is simple and easy; you can meander along the interconnecting waterways through reed marshes, meadows and woodland, mooring up by cosy riverside pubs, picturesque villages and market towns. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty and also offers some of the country’s finest coarse fishing,

There are five main departure points for your Norfolk Broads holiday; Brundall to the west, Beccles and Oulton Broad in the south, Acle in the centre with Hickling and Stalham to its north, and Wroxham and Horning beyond.
