Locals often refer to the are of the Norfolk Broads as 'Broadland' which, as some of the rivers and broads make their way into neighbouring Suffolk, could be considered a more inclusive name for this beautiful part of England.
City of Norwich
Norwich is vibrant and very photogenic, a place with the richest of histories and a castle to boot. Its winding narrow streets conjure up images of the Norman beginnings, mediaeval growth to the present day.
Places, Towns and Villages
The countryside is undulating and mostly agricultural, so the colours of the landscape are ever changing and there are the most lovely villages and towns to explore not to mention the beautiful Rivers Yare, Ant, Waveney, Chet and Bure that meander their leisurely way through connecting the beautiful inland lakes or Broads, creating the waterways and wetlands that make up The Norfolk Broads.
The wildlife abounds in this landscape, adapting to the ever changing environment and conservation has been very successful in reintroducing species such as the otter and even the heron, that for a long time, struggled to survive.
To the eastern side of the Norfolk Broads, the sandy beaches and stunning coastline caress the Broads at Horsey Mere with the salt water of the North Sea coming within a hare's breathe of the fresh water of the Broads. Grey and common seals are thriving on this shoreline and a visit to see them up close is a must.
Boating and in particular, Boat Hire of course, has played its part in the development of the tourist industry since the early 20th century and today it is still a vibrant and successful part of Broadland life. Videos of the boating life are very popular, many show just how life afloat and boats have changed over the decades.
