Canals & Waterways

To journey along our vast network of canals & waterways is to see the UK from a different perspective. Some 2,000 miles of rivers and canals connect cities, towns and countryside, combining history and wildlife against a backdrop of spectacular scenery.
Easily accessible to all, our waterways provide the perfect day out for walkers, cyclists, anglers and of course, those on the water itself. There are more than 35,000 vessels on our canals and rivers at present, including pleasure cruisers, traders and houseboats.

Norfolk - A place to relax...

Norfolk

Norfolk is so hard to beat when it comes to getting away from it all. A sprawling county with beautiful scenery, spectacular coastline and of course, some very famous waterways...
The Norfolk Broads, a network of rivers and man made lakes, covers a huge area including some 125 miles of navigable channels.
Boaters can cruise around this expanse of tranquility at their leisure taking in free flowing rivers and more than 40 broads if they so wish.
Meander through picturesque villages and bustling towns on your relaxing journey before mooring up at one of the many waterside pubs and restaurants along the way.
For those more inclined to stay on land, there are lots of lovely walking and cycling routes too.
