Take to the water in the Norfolk Broads

What Norfolk lacks in hills and mountains, it more than makes up for with its Broads, a vast expanse of navigable rivers and lakes spanning most of the county - and extending into Suffolk. Originally formed due to peat farming, the landscape now makes for an unforgettable experience for tourists, whether they take to the water on a boat tour or simply walk the many footpaths in search of the bountiful flora and fauna. Particularly popular with birders.

Help out a hoofed friend

Redwings Horse Sanctuary has several sites throughout the UK, mostly in Norfolk - with one in Caldecott, just on the edge of the Broads. As well as doing vital work to provide rescued and abandoned horses, ponies, donkeys and mules with a new home, it's also a terrific place to take children to meet the animals.

Take a trip to Great Yarmouth

A delightful and traditional seaside resort town, Great Yarmouth offers splendid views over the North Sea, fine sandy beaches and plenty of attractions. The Sea Life Centre is worth a visit all year round, while the Nelson Museum and Time And Tide Museum are both ideal for history buffs. The Pleasure Beach, though, is most popular and not to be missed, especially in high season.

Looking for accommodation in the Norfolk Broads? Travelodge Great Yarmouth Hotel and Travelodge Lowestoft Hotel are both convenient for the Broads and the coast alike, while Travelodge Norwich Central Riverside Hotel is a better inland base for those making a trip from London or the North.
