Taking a Boat Trip on the Norfolk Broads
There is no better way to spend an afternoon, slowly cruising down the river, enjoying the beautiful landscape and local wildlife whilst aboard a chartered passenger day boat. There are several sight-seeing broads cruiser companies that run scheduled hourly services during the summer season. There are several places to take a boat trip from; with an interlinking bus service The Broads Hopper (bike friendly) and the Poppy Line train service that stops at Wroxham/Hoveton station making it easily accessible from Norwich, even without a car.
Relax whilst gently heading upstream onboard a well equipped and comfortable passenger Broads Cruiser; taking in this beautiful untamed wetlands of reed beds and marshes; enjoy a spot of bird watching or looking for the wildlife of the riverbank like otters before a spot of afternoon tea and cakes and heading home on the calm waters of the Norfolk Broads. Taking a boat trip on the Norfolk Broads is one of the best ways to see and explore this unique landscape and well worth a family ticket. Barton Broad offers a unique eco boat trip onboard Britain’s first solar-powered passenger boat, Ra for a totally environment-friendly family boat trip.
This is leisurely activity is suitable for all ages, although children should always be supervised when onboard a boat or by waterways. There are a couple of disable user friendly crafts that cater for wheelchairs users that can be hired with staff, providing guided Broad river tours for disable users.
