Boat small enough for two 60 pluses to handle(one, a non swimmer birdwatcher), well appointed and we took extra bedding which was necessary. Excellent spots to see wildlife, lovely sun rises/sets and relatively uncrowded. Do plan your itinerary but be prepared to alter it; be aware Norfolk... More

We've cruised the Norfolk (& Suffolk) Broads for over 35 years now and would like to pass on a few tips. Join a Norfolk Broads Forum, such as the Norfolk Broads Network, and ask away for suggestions. You'll meet lots of family people who've seen and done it.. Whatever, DON'T rush about; take it easy and just relax. Fishing, walking,... More

Hire a boat to get the best vantage points to view lovely houses and see the wildlife stop off at one or more of the many pubs and just enjoy.

Very difficult to sum up the broads as it is so vast in space and things to see and do. Villages galore, cafes and shops and the lovely waterways to sail on. Plenty of places to stay and don't forget ROYS of Wrexham
