A boating holiday on the Norfolk Broads offers a unique experience as you cruise slowly along inter-connected waterways, rich with wildlife and abundant, often unique flora. Stop en-route to visit an historical town or village, country park, museum or ancient building. Boat hire on the Norfolk Broads allows you to immerse yourself in the traditional Broads way of life by visiting a Summer regatta or waterside festival.

The Broads were formed from channels left after hundreds of years of peat digging. These slowly filled with water and in the 1800's tourists started to visit the area as the waterways and beautiful surroundings started to evolve.

Now this National Park extends to more than 120 miles of rivers including the Yare, Bure, Waveney, Ant and Thurne. It includes the historical city of Norwich, the coastal holiday town of Great Yarmouth, the Broads capital Wroxham plus Stalham, Acle, Beccles, Brundall, Horning and Oulton Broad.

Boat hire on the Norfolk Broads remains popular today and with no locks to navigate, it makes the perfect destination to take a short break or holiday afloat. Choose from a great range of boats suitable for the first time boater through to those looking to experience the Broads aboard a luxury cruiser. You will even find a wide selection of dog friendly boats available too.

But if cruising the waterways is not your thing, you can always hire a static houseboat at the water's edge or a holiday cottage set in beautiful surroundings.
