blademan hi,
Not sure if you meant pool table or swimming pool.  Their is a Lido at Beccles on the Southern Broads.  There was also a pool at Oulton Broad but Im not sure if it still exists.  If you are talking pool tables The Beauchamp Arms at Buckenham near Cantley has a couple along with a few game machines.  On the Northern Broads The Ferry Inn at Horning has the biggest games room I've seen attached to any pub. Which side of The Broads are you picking up the boat from north or south?  If you intend to cover both sides you will have to cross Breydon Water.  The following link will give you information.

Your first time eh, well I bet it won't be your last, you and the kids will love it.
And the kids also love driving the boat too.
Have a lovely time.

Pool table in beer garden (under canopy)  at The Maltsters, Ranworth.

And just a short walk from The Staithe is the Ranworth Broad Nature reserve with its floating wildlife centre / visitor centre  and a great boardwalk.

I think the games room at the Ferry has gone, but perhaps someone can confirm. last time I was up there in November it was closed and all the machines gone.

I'm pretty sure the games room existed when I went their last September and they are advertising it on their new web site. Rewind the last sentence their web site indicates that they are making the games room into a dining area.   I am back on the Broads early May and will check it out.

Once again I would advise coming South. If its amusements that you want then a night at Gt Yarmouth is a must, not only is there a very good Pleasure Beach/fun fair there are literally thousands of amusement machines in scores of arcades.

On a much smaller scale there is also an arcade at Oulton Broad, plus a nature reserve and small zoo with animals the children can handle.

At the high cultural end of things a trip to Norwich should exhaust them. The Castle Museum & Art Gallery is world class and the Cathedral is breath-taking.

Hello Blademan,

If you are stopping on the Northern Broads, you can moor up the boat and go into Great Yarmouth by public transport. We have stopped at Acle and done this but you could do it from a number of locations.

Regards
