The Broads is Britain's largest nationally protected wetland - the whole area is 303 sq km.

Once an essential transport network, today the waterways are used for recreation, the whole of the Broads area attracting more than two million visitors a year.
The broads offer various types of activity, for every kind of holiday maker. With its quiets roads, gentle slopes, beautifrul countryside and plethora of hiking trails, the region is superb for walking and cycling, and has always been a popular destination for such activities. But the water is the major draw and various watersports can be found along the broads, naturally fishing is very popular too.
