Linking several of the popular Norfolk Broads, the River Bure is a popular spot for paddlers.
Flowing from Aylsham for 32 miles before it reaches the North Sea at Gorleston, the river flows through Wroxham and Horning. It then flows past the pretty St Benet’s Abbey and along the popular conservation area of Halvergate Marshes.
Paddling options on the River Bure
There are plenty of options when you’re paddling the River Bure. Whether you fancy a leisurely river paddle or a full on day exploration of all the Broads has to offer.
This spot on the Broads is remote and quiet making it perfect for a day of paddling. It’s a great spot for a paddle and picnic whilst soaking up the local wildlife.
Regular spots along the Bure and adjoining Broads include marsh harriers, Egyptian geese, cormorants, several types of butterfly, water vole and even otters.
There are several ‘wash style’ stations across the whole of the Norfolk Broads that are designated to help stop the spread of invasive non-native species.
Such species include shrimp species which threaten the natural health of the river.
