Welcome to the Broads National Park

This is the official website for the Broads - Britain's largest protected wetland and the third largest inland waterway. 

It's also home to more than a quarter of the rarest plants and animals in the UK.

A rich mix of attractions are on offer on land and water all year round - and the historic city of Norwich is right on the doorstep.
