Norfolk Broads SailingView map
Miles of lock-free waterways
s there a better way to wile away a week than by quietly sluicing your way through the Norfolk Broads on a sailing boat?
If peace and tranquility are your thing, and you have a yen for areas of natural untouched beauty, the answer is a hearty, seafaring ‘no’.
The waterways of the Norfolk Broads offer endless miles of lock-free cruising on shallow lakes and rivers, making them perfect for first time sailors. A week on board means slowing down to the rhythms of the tides and charting a holiday course to match your rested heartbeat.
You can fill in your days by simply watching the huge variety of wildlife float past. Be it a bird or a butterfly, you won’t wait long. Or, instead, jump ship and visit the market towns and traditional boat building villages that line the banks.
Add access to nature reserves, micro-breweries, historic churches, panoramic views, cathedral cities, woodlands, marshes and some of the freshest, tastiest local produce in the UK and you have an experience that is more than a holiday.
It’s a glimpse into a whole new way of life. And once you’ve had a taste, you’ll keep coming back for more and more.
