Hi all you experts out there. Can anyone give some routes, and times it takes and places to go n see. We will be leaving potter Heigham 26th August for 7 Days and although we want to see as much as we can, we also want to chill a bit. I'm hoping to do a bit of fishing in the mornings and nights (from the boat). So any tips where to go to make the most of it is going to be very much appreciated.

From a very confused beginner.

Cliff

Do a Google search for Norfolk Broads and start going through web sites.(you've still got a couple of weeks) The Broads Authority one is a good starting point. Books available from Amazon as well as OS map. Pick out the places you'd like most to see and make a rough itinerary. Don't make your plans/route too rigid as things can and will change, go with the flow and relax.

Hi Cliff
I'd suggest you start by having a look at the bottom of the page in Red "Downloads" and have a read (and print out) 'Cruising Times' & 'First Time Guide' and also put in your search engine "visit Norfolk Broads" loads of stuff to be found there.....
but basically....just take it easy and go wherever the river takes you - unless you've got children to accommodate - just chill in the beautiful surroundings! Smile

You know you've chosen bank holiday week?! The key things to consider are being able to get into popular moorings successfully or whether to to choose isolated moorings that will give you a bit of peace and quiet for fishing. The latter are becoming rare (moreso at this time of year) but there are several good ones before Barton Broad on the Ant - easier to get onto on weekday evenings. If you want to get onto one of the most popular moorings (eg Ranworth staithe or Womack) for the night you need to be there after lunch when the lunchtime crowd are leaving and there may be spaces coming up. Don't forget there are moorings down the side of Ranworth staithe as well as along the font. If you see gap, nose in and get a rope onto a friendly boat. If you can be independant through use of a dinghy, there's no better way to get to your chosen venue than mud weighting off and simply rowing in - best of both worlds! If you are just doing the northern broads, nowhere is more than a couple of hours apart. Have a great holiday!

Carry on cruising!

Cheers everyone, i'll check out some of the sites you suggested and see what comes up. I'd had a few hits already and got a bit of info, but better following others successful ones.
