Hi Icicles
Over all Journey by boat from Stalham to Norwich is  about 51 miles and could take very approximately 11 hours nonstop. Due to the limitations at Great Yarmouth nonstop is very likely to be unachievable.  As you may be aware  Yarmouth has 2 bridges with very limited clearance near high water  and strong currents outside the ideal time at low water slack. This is not a journey I would attempt in one day. If tides are favourable you could moor up the night before at Acle, Stokesby or at what used to be The Stracey Arms .

Kind Regards
Alan...

Hi Icicles,

If you are new to boating I suspect you would not like the long journey from Stalham to Norwich at all. Better to go by car, about 30 mins, rather than by boat, realistically 1.5 days each way and a total waste of your week.
We keep our boat in Horning, and rarely go to the southern rivers because of the long boring sections in between  Stokesby and the other side of Breydon; lovely when you get there though.
Keep to the Northern rivers for the first visit and limit your time under way to a comfortable level. Stalham to the main river is about 1.5 hours and then another 1.5 or so to Wroxham. There is plenty to keep you occupied. above Acle.

There is a good train service from Wroxham (which you will probably visit) to Norwich. Takes around 15 mins as opposed to all those hours cruising!

I disagree (surprise) it is well worth making the feffort to go to the Southern Broads even if you are only on the boat for a week. The Rivers are nicer, they are less busy and Norwich, Beccles and Oulton are all better (IMHO) than anywhere on the Northern Broads.
Would I try to do Stalham to Norwich in one day? Yes and I have done Norwich to Neatishead (slightly less distance) many times, Passing through Yarmouth is not the terror that many people make it out to be, I have passed through at all states of the Tide, the only thing to worry about is the bridge clearance and that can easily be checked before you reach Yarmouth by calling either GY yacht station and asking the clearance or ringing Bridge control and asking the same question.
Would I recommend doing Stalham to Norwich in one day to a first timer? I would say no but only because there are lots of places to see on the way so I would cross Breydon and Stop at Reedham for instance.
Don't panic,don't rush,, don't take risks and enjoy yourselves.
