Well here’s another point of view though we are of the sailing fraternity,if you follow the direction of the tides which may mean getting up early there are some lovely parts of the river leading towards Norwich,Langley dyke,mudweighting on Surlingham Broad,Postwick Wharf/Surlingham ferry moorings,Bramerton Woods end moorings if you can get on there.When you get to Postwick wharf bridge turn round.Youve paid a great deal for your boat don’t waste a day on land.Insted of Great Yarmouth then head down the New Cut to Oulton Broad,there a lovely park there with lots to keep the kids amused even a small funfair

Welcome to the Forum and best wishes for your trip - no wonder you are excited.

Just to add on the Northern Broads, places to stay if your first choice isn't an option
Barton Turf next to Cox's boat yard
How Hill, especially quaint with stunning sunsets and good walks
Fleet Dyke (the dyke leading to Walsham Broad)

And in the south Rockland St Mary very nice with the New Inn serving great food

The pace of life down there
suits us

Hi there, if she who must be obeyed wants to start at 4.00am or when ever go with the flow, a nice greasy spoon breakfast and coffee and cupcakes on route, who cares, you are on holiday aren't you.   Smile

Thank you all for the advice.

Funnily enough, I found out this morning that my boss and his wife have done the Broads many times so I have had plenty of tips from them.
