Point of Interest
“There's a number of companies that offer boat hires for various party sizes, as well those that offer boat trips and tours. There is nothing quite as peaceful nor as enjoyable than spending a day cruising under huge open blue skies through the natural peaceful tranquillity that the broads has to offer. There’s a number of wonderfully picturesque villages that often have a riverside pub, perfect for mooring up and having a bite to eat and a locally brewed ale. ”

Establishment
“The Norfolk Broads or as it is now known The Broads National Park is perhaps the most famous tourist spot in the county - the wetland rivers (7) and lakes (63 Broads) are a hive of activity, from a leisurely cruise and hiring a boat yourselves, to fishing and canoeing, but there's a lot more to see and do than the water based activities. A good starting point is always Wroxham. Hire a boat there, head downstream through Salhouse, Horning - stop for a pint at the New Inn - and Raworth to South Walsham and back. Boats usually hold up to eight at around £122 a day.”

“Wroxham Miniature Worlds is the largest indoor modelling attraction in the UK stretching over 10,000 square feet with some of the largest model railways in the world on permanent public display. The attraction is made up of many Zones including model railways in various scales, slot car displays, a whole city made from those famous little bricks, doll displays, model displays and a host of toys from across the decades there is something for the whole family. While it's eminently family suitable, the display table heights and intricacy of detail best suits kids over 5. Younger are still welcome but must be closely supervised and will certainly require your assistance to view some sections. ”
