The Broads is Britain’s largest protected wetland, covering some 300 sq km. Its rivers, broads, marshes and fens make it a unique area with some rare habitats, plants and wildlife. It was the arrival of the railways in the late 19th century that opened the area to tourism. Today it is one of the most popular inland waterways with in excess of 125 miles of lock-free navigable waterways. Other popular activities include fishing, walking, cycling and bird watching.
