Hickling Broad is situated in the upper stretches of the River Thurne, and is the largest expanse of open water in the Broads. It is a National Nature Reserve, and its wide skies and open landscape offer the perfect place for a walk at any time of year. It is a haven for rare Broads plants and animals, particularly bittern and the swallowtail butterfly.
Over the next few months visitors to the south side of the reserve will be aware of flood alleviation work. For more details, please ask at the visitor centre or ring them on 01692 598276 before your visit. Thank you for your understanding.
