Welcome to the Broads
The Broads is Britain’s magical waterland, a uniquely beautiful environment shaped by people working hand in hand with nature over thousands of years. The Broads offers visitors an experience unlike any other, both on its rivers and lakes – the “broads” – and alongside them, on peaceful paths and cycleways and in the unspoiled villages and market towns that make up the tapestry of this fantastic area.
The Broads offers a rich mix of attractions and activities year-round for visitors of any age and any interest. The Broads is proud to be a member of Britain’s family of National Parks, and is recognised globally for its wildlife and the distinct and precious character of its environment.
Best of all, the Broads is so easy to get to for a holiday, short break or day visit, and it’s all within easy reach of the historic city of Norwich and the exhilarating coastline of Norfolk and Suffolk. A magical place where land and water, people and nature meet – there’s nowhere quite as special as the Broads.
