Wroxham is also good for shopping, it caims to have world's largest village store - Roys - and also a shopping precinct. Salhouse Broad, a little way down the River Bure from Wroxham, takes our vote for the most beautiful of the Norfolk Broads and yet it is one of the smallest. Ranworth Broad is a boating paradise with all style, shape and size of boat, and their crew can often be found having a pint of local beer in the pub! Moving up the River Ant, we pass How Hill, a lovely nature reserve and small marshman's museum. The River Ant opens onto beautiful Barton Broad, the second largest of the Norfolk Broads and until recently you could only enjoy its delights from a boat. Stalham is home to the Broads Museum, showcasing the history of the Norfolk Broads, including mans influence on the Broadland landscape. Horsey has a fabulous four storey windpump, that was built in 1912 and is now owned by the National Trust. Returning back to Thurne Mouth, the River Bure continues its journey across the Norfolk marshes, through the bridge at Acle and towards the sea at Great Yarmouth.
Across Breydon Water are the Southern Broads which lead to Loddon, Reedham, Brundall and the Norfolk Suffolk border, before eventually arriving in the capital of East Anglia - Norwich. Tap the graphic above and a map will be displayed in a new tab - please be patient while it downloads!

Our Norfolk Broads moorings are within the Broads Haven Marina next to the River Thurne at Potter Heigham.
At our Norfolk Broads moorings, all private boat owners are given a personal code to open the barrier at the entrance to the Broads Haven Marina, plus they have access to a full range of services from Herbert Woods boatyard (including Wi-Fi, water, diesel, pump outs, engineering, painting, boat building, upholstery, canopies and covers) – and the boatyard staff are always willing to offer help and advice. A limited number of  Broads Haven Marina moorings have 240v shore power and may be available from time to time. This takes the worry out of having to find a mooring for your boat, particularly if you are new to the Norfolk Broads. The class was designed by Linton Hope and the yachts were built by the Burnham Yacht  Building Co. The first race for the Class took place on Oulton Broad on Whit Monday 1901 after the first 5 yachts were delivered from Burnham on Crouch by flat bed train trucks. Carvel mahogany planking, fastened with copper nails and roves to steam oak timbers on an oak back-bone. Stainless steel rigging with stainless steel rigging screws to stainless steel chain plates. This Broads One Design No 13, was refitted some years ago by a previous owner, a well-known Norfolk yachtsman who owned the yacht from 1973 to 1990.
A condition report from September 09 indicates that the yacht was in very sound condition and confirms that the bottom paint was removed and the seams raked out in 2004.


The seams were payed up with Sikaflex, a flexible butyl rubber sealant and the hull antifouled. Hiya Kev-SYour pics have brought back so many good memories of times on the norfolk broads. I used to go on the Canals every summer (my family were canal workers or boat builders and i grew up in cornwall in boat lockers ) with a friend of the family who has a dog. We used to go on narrowboat holidays with the family dog when we were younger, and she loved it. My local walk is down by the canal and loads of dogs walk up and down off lead, including my two, never had any issues. We took our bridge boy on two or three cruiser holidays, he was a little unsure at first but got used to it. We went on a canal holiday with our dog a couple of years ago - I found her reaction mildly dissapointing, in that she treated the boat a bit like being on a car journey and just went into the living area and slept until we stopped.
We went on a boating holiday with Jack and he HATED every minute of it, he couldn't wait to get off the boat every time we moored up, and would refuse to get back on board without being manhandled. This unique patchwork of rivers and lakes is not, as was first thought, a natural landscape, but a result of intensive digging of peat in the Middle Ages to provide fuel. From Wroxham you can either hire your own self-drive cruiser for the week, weekend, day, or just for a few hours.
The following boatyards offer a fine choice of comfortable self-drive cruisers, with a good choice of layouts and all well equipped to a high standard - you just need to choose the right boat for you!
You will also find some great attractions including Hoveton Hall Gardens, the Bure Valley Steam Railway and Wroxham Barns.
This is one of the most picturesque villages on the Norfolk Broads and contains some fine old cottages, shops, pubs with river gardens and riverside walks.
Here you will find the Cathedral of the Broads - a lovely old church with steps allowing you to climb the church tower for fantastic views over the Broads. Ranworth Broad is said to be haunted by a 12th century monk that is often seen rowing his boat out onto the Broad early in the morning mist. The Barton Boardwalk changed all that by providing a viewing platform at the end of a walkway through ancient woodland. You can also find one the most picturesque windmills in Norfolk - Hunsett Drainage Mill - now privately owned. The museum shows how the waterways of the Broads were the equivalent of motorways in times gone by, with all types of goods transported in Norfolk Wherries, from the villages to the port of Great Yarmouth and the city of Norwich. The village of Thurne is marked by its famous windmill and is also on the Weavers Way, the long distance footpath covering much of Broadland. Here you will find Hunters Yard, the home of the Hunters Fleet, who hire out original 1930's gaff and lug rigged yachts. A road leads from the village towards the ruins of historic St Benets Abbey, founded in 1020 and at one time was one of the wealthiest Benedictine houses in the country. These are lovely remote places to visit, as many boats cannot navigate through Potter bridge to get here! Acle is a lovely riverside Norfolk market village, with plenty of historic buildings to admire. As standard they offer well-appointed boats equipped with all modern fixtures and fittings. It features an impressive saloon with folding door access to the rear sun deck and a contemporary fitted galley.
Lavish in saloon and sun deck space and complete with everything you could wish for on board. The mast is stepped in a wooden tabernacle on deck which allows the mast to be readily lowered to shoot the bridge on the Broads.


This dog was so well trained he never needed to be on the lead (although more than not he was cos of the safety thing). She was stupidly well trained, which is amazing because back then we didn't really know much about dogs and just did the best we could, she only ended up in the canal unintended twice in 4 years of holidays and was safely rescued. Motley has fallen in the canal once (from the bank, not the boat) but that was my fault for not paying attention. The empty pits were soon filled by rising water levels and now form a network of over 125 miles of navigable waterways providing leisure interest for many. Alternatively, you can take an organised cruise aboard one of the large comfortable cruise boats.
It is ideal to anchor the boat and go for a walk, enjoy a picnic or let the kids splash around.
The church also has one of the finest medieval rood screens in the country and an ancient book of Psalms. Herbert Woods is one of the most famous names in the Norfolk Broads boat hire industry and he built the first ever yacht marina on the Broads at Potter Heigham. Horsey is the closest Broadland village to the Norfolk Coast, being only a mile from the North Sea and a path across fields makes an excellent walk.
But to enjoy it you need to get out on a boat, a visit by car will usually prove disappointing. You are ideally located to explore the historic City of Norwich or visit the many other market towns and villages on the Norfolk Broads in addition to the picturesque wetland areas.
The Norfolk Broads landscape is one of beauty and peace, of water, marsh, woodland and wide skies - with views of church towers and windmills.
Norfolk Broads boating holidays date back to the 19th century, when John Loynes founded his boatyard business in 1878. The Broad is also home to the Norfolk Punt Club, one of the most famous sailing clubs on the Broads. By the late 19th century, boating on the Broads by the Victorians had mushroomed into a substantial tourist trade and that trade continues into the 21st century.
The villages surrounding Barton Broad (Neatishead, Irstead and Barton Turf) offer much to the visitor, including historic churches, a fine village pub and plenty of beautiful countryside to explore on bike or foot.
They both love the water , can be found on the roof whilst we are cruising , complete with life jackets. The owner reckons he is a reincarnate of a canal working dog cos they never even had to train him he just knew. At the moment we are heading for Aylesbury , via Leighton Buzzard, Charlie has been here before and remembers all the walks , this is all new to Bonny, but she is loving it. Visit Broadland and you can enjoy many activities including Norfolk Broads boating holidays, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, walking, fishing and cycling.
The only thing that drives me mad about the canals are stupid holiday makers who don't know what they are doing and take their dogs and let them off the lead on the towpath when they really cannot be trusted off the lead anywhere.
The Norfolk Broads has many lovely hotels, B&B, country cottages, parks and camping sites in which you can stay.
Some of these people even had the guts to yell at me cos of this dog being off the lead when their dog is going nuts and ours was just sat away from the fuss waiting for the next command.
