Muti-award winning 5-star Holiday Park and Marina

Waveney River Centre

Waveney River CentreWe are an award-winning family-owned Park backed up up by a small, friendly team of enthuiastic staff.

Burgh St Peter staithe and Waveney River Centre have a rich history; nowhere has a church tower quite like the ziggurat inspired church of St Mary, whilst in the Victorian era The Waveney Inn featured a zoological gardens in its grounds - you’ll find old photographs of some of the animals in the pub's main bar. But throughout the years Burgh St Peter was most important for its staithe, where trading wherries would load and unload goods, and for the ferry which allowed south Norfolk’s residents to walk or cycle to Lowestoft fish market.

The expansion of the Broads holiday industry in the 1960s led to the first phase of Waveney River Centre's development as a visitor destination, and by the 1980s the business included a much expanded pub, additional marina and an indoor heated pool. Today, this award winning holiday park and marina is open year round and features luxury holiday lodges, 5-star camping and boat hire, as well as a ferry link to Carlton Marshes.

The Park sits within the Broads and is on the edge of a nature reserve, so we're keen to minimise our impact on the environment and to encourage our customers to do the same. We've held the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award since 2009 and have introduced numerous energy saving initiatives to the Park including solar panels, LED lighting and super-efficient swimming pool heating.
