Experience the Broads National Park in just a day

The Broads National Park is a wonderful place to spend a day with breath taking scenery, diverse wildlife and excellent opportunities for activities such as walking, fishing, cycling and boating.

Over 125 miles of waterways make up the National Park, so it will come as no surprise that the best way to truly experience the magic of the Broads is from the water. Boating on the Broads is as popular today as it has ever been and we have a fantastic range of boat hire & water sport options available to help you discover the Broads in just a few hours.

Take a day and cruise the Broads in style aboard one of our day boats or picnic boat. If you are looking for something more adventurous then why not try exploring the hidden backwaters in a Canadian canoe or kayak. No previous experience is necessary as all our boat hire options include a tutorial and safety briefing from one of our team. You will also be given a map of the Broads and life jackets for all passengers.

Located just a 30 minute drive from Norwich and with ample parking our Potter Heigham boat yard is the ideal place to start your day out on the Broads call 0800 144 4472 or come and see us to begin your Norfolk Broads adventure.
