Just fantastic. So much to see and do. Lovely walks and very tranquil. Boat trips well worth the effort to really appreciate what the Broads have to offer.

We did the 90 minute cruise on the Queen of the Broads. Well worth it. Not much you can do other than sit there, enjoy the scenery, and listen to the informative and often amusing commentary. There was an on-board bar which surprisingly we didn't...More
