Boating on the Broads, Norfolk and Suffolk


Winnie the Pooh’s bucket list シリーズです!



Pooh and Piglet looked at the river beneath them, saying nothing, and the river said nothing too, for it was very quiet and peaceful just to be.




Whether you’re gliding along the mystical waterways by boat or exploring the unspoilt villages by foot, there’s plenty of fun to be had on the Norfolk Broads.The wetlands are a haven for wildlife, so keep your eyes peeled for rare butterflies, dragonflies and birds along the way.





It’s also a wild landscape of dense pine forest, open heathland and great expanses of salt marsh, which flush purple with sea-lavender in August. Bird life is astonishingly rich and coastal wild flowers include yellow-horned poppies and purple-flowering sea pea, while the unique wetlands of the Broads, one of England’s 10 designated National Parks, is home to more than 400 rare species, including butterflies, dragonflies, moths and snails.
Further inland, undulating countryside and sleepy, flint-built villages are perfect for gentle cycling, walking or touring by car. Stately homes, ruined castles, medieval churches and half-timbered wool-towns with fascinating museums make enjoyable days out.
There’s also a good variety of shopping in lively Georgian towns such as Burnham Market and Holt in North Norfolk and Southwold in Suffolk and, wherever you are, you’re never far from a cosy, pamment-floored pub serving local ales or an excellent delicatessen selling the region’s specialities – pungent cheeses, smoked fish or honey.
