hi jimmy t
well jimmy depends on what end of the broads you enjoyed the most. both ends are beautiful, the north end does'nt have too much tidal as the southern end does,also at the northern end many more villages and stop off  points and boatyards .the southern end is more open and also nice villages,but no doubt after this post there will be more advise to from our other great members ,
cheers

steve and vicky

The Nth and Sth are , in my mind completely differant but both as enjoyable in their own way.
A lot of people are concerned about Breydon, but if you get the tides and weather right then there is nothing to it.
Like any waterway you do need to plan ahead a bit but I have done it 5 or 6 times in a 23 foot cruiser and the only thing I would say is to try and avoid weekends as there can be a number of larger high speed power boats about and water skiers which can cause a bit of a wash.
Mooring up at Reedham when the tide is running fast is more trouble than Breydon.
Try it you will enjoy it AND you will see both the Nth and Sth broads / rivers.

I took some video of my first crossing, If I can find it I,ll put a link on her so you can see it.


Good luck

Hi Jimmyt, You don't say where you've been before, or how long you intend to go for this time, if you are going just for a week i would stay either on the North or South for the whole week depending on where you hire your craft from, if you are staying for two weeks do em both,Breydon is great fun and nothing to worry about, plenty of information in your boats book on how and when to cross, give it a go. I have a boat on the South side it is very piecefull and relaxing, never many boats on the river, the North will offer more for you to do in the way of villages and shops near to the water. Down to you now mate, enjoy it let us know what you decide
