Potter Heigham is the gateway to the Upper Thurne. It is the home of Herbert Woods boatyard and famous medieval bridge. The bridge is recognised as the most difficult to navigate on the Broads.

The River Wensum rises near Whissonsett in north west Norfolk and is a tributary of the River Yare. The river is navigable from New Mills Yard to Whitlingham, although the limit of navigation for hire craft is Bishops Bridge. At Whitlingham the Wensum merges with the River Yare.

The journey through the outskirts of Norwich along the River Wensum is varied and interesting. On the way you will pass old wharf buildings and new developments alike. The visitor can easily spend the whole day if not longer exploring all that Norwich has to offer. If your boating holiday has taken you onto the southern rivers then Norwich and the upper stretches of the Yare are really worth a visit

A visit to the southern Broads is not complete without a visit to Oulton Broad and the yacht station. There are lots of things to do to suit all ages and you could even pop to the beach for a few hours at Lowestoft.

After visiting the yacht station why not prolong your visit to Oulton Broad by heading over to North Bay. It is a quiet attractive spot ideal for dropping the mud-weight.

Loddon is an attractive market town with many splendid Georgian houses along its main street. The fine Church of the Holy Trinity stands high over the village and surrounding countryside. At the head of the river the tree lined public staithe has good moorings for a number of boats of all sizes.

How Hill National Nature Reserve is a microcosm of the Broadland world, with nature trails taking the visitor through sedge beds, marsh meadow and carr woodland, both on land and water. There are also the gardens at How Hill House, Toad Hole Cottage Museum and windmills to discover all just a short walk from the staithe.

The Waveney River Centre at Burgh St Peter is in a delightful setting surrounded by trees with a grassy bank rising gently from the river with good views over the Waveney valley towards Lowestoft. A sculpture of a leaping Pike entitled Eddie II marks the entrance to the marina which has good moorings, free for short stays, a charge is levied should you wish to stay longer.

Salhouse Broad is a beautiful broad, a grassy bank rises from the broad, flanked by woods on either side.  In the spring you may find bluebells in the wood, and flag iris by the shore.  Canoes and Kayaks are available for hire. The broad is ideal for your first time out in a canoe as it’s off the main river and has the old Wherry Cut for you to explore. The broad is in the ideal position to catch the late evening and early morning sun and is a popular spot to moor.

In a recent survey Ranworth came top as the most popular place to visit on the Norfolk Broads. It’s not hard to see why there is so much for visitors to enjoy, from relaxing by Malthouse Broad to a climb up St Helen’s church tower, or a stroll through beautiful carr woodland to the thatched visitor centre over looking Ranworth Broad.
