We delve into the wonders of Norfolk as we explore A Unique National Park - Broadland and the Broads
The perfect year-round destination
Norfolk is a great all-year holiday, weekend or short break destination.
On the mid-east coast of England, it has 90 miles of unspoilt coastline, beautiful countryside, the unique Broads National Park, forest and heathland, internationally important nature reserves, picturesque market towns, amazing bird watching and fabulous seaside resorts. And not forgetting Norwich, a fantastic city of heritage, culture and shopping.
A contrast between the hustle and bustle of the seaside resorts, to the relaxing calm of the broads Norfolk is possibly most famous for the man-made Broads. A National Park with over 125 miles of navigable lock-free waterways set in beautiful countryside and studded with charming and picturesque towns and villages.
