Norfolk Welcomes You
The Broads is Britain’s largest protected wetland, made up of shallow lakes formed in medieval times when peat was dug out for use as fuel. Over the centuries water levels rose forming the Broads. Open water, wet woodland, reed and sedge fens and vast grazing marshes for cattle are the characteristic habitats of the Broads, and well worth a visit. Considered by many to be the birdwatching capital of England, there’s plenty to see all year round.
Across Norfolk, many artists over the years have been inspired by its huge skies, traditional seaside resorts, picturesque market towns and quaint villages. Don’t take our word for it, come and experience Norfolk for yourself.
