Known as the “Capital of the Broads”, Wroxham Broad, just off the River Bure, is one of the larger Broads in the National Park. And, like other Broads, it is steeped in nature.
As you paddle you’re likely to spot everything from kingfishers to damselflies. You will also get the chance to spot an otter or water vole as well. An that’s not all.
In the colder months pochard and tufted ducks can be found wintering here. Take binoculars with you, you never know what you might spot!
Wroxham Broad was one of the first ‘established’ Broads to emerge and become a popular tourist attraction, and it’s very easy to see why!
You’ll find stunning scenery, wildlife, sunrises and sunsets will greet you as you paddle. Whatever time of the year, or time of the day you paddle, you’ll see something new.
A little trivia about Wroxham Broad
During the course of some environmental work in 2004, volunteers discovered an unexploded Second World War hand grenade in the dredgings. An army bomb disposal team took care of the grenade.
Another quick bit of trivia about the Broad is that is features in two books by Swallows and Amazons author Arthur Ransome. These are Coot Club and The Big Six.
