The Norfolk Broads network of over 120 miles of navigable rivers and lakes were originally considered to be a natural landscape. It wasn’t until the 1960s that it was finally proven that they were formed by water flooding the old peat workings.
The six rivers that make up The Broads are the Thurne, Bure, Waveney, Ant, Yare and Chet. The area also includes over sixty Broads plus the historic city of Norwich, the coastal holiday town of Great Yarmouth, the Broads capital Wroxham plus Stalham, Acle, Beccles, Brundall, Horning, Hickling, Reedham and Oulton Broad.
A self catering boating holiday allows you to cruise slowly along unspoilt waterways, where the banks are rich with a huge variety of plants and an abundance of wildlife. Stop en-route to admire a windmill, ancient ruins, or to enjoy a bite to eat at a riverside restaurant.
Your cruiser will be well equipped to ensure your self catering holiday on the Norfolk Broads is as comfortable as possible. Boats range from 2 to 10 berth and come in various configurations to suit families and friends travelling together. Some even allow well behaved dogs too.
