Norfolk Broads
A very beautiful part of the inland waterways! They are somehow similar to Camargue, only very, very British and, according to English people much nicer. The northerly Rivers Ant, Bure and Thurne are more mellow then their brothers Yare and Waveney in the southern estuary. These are wilder and more rural but therefore less crowded.
River Bure
is the most northerly of the tree main rivers of the Broads. It flows into the North Sea at Great Yarmouth.

River Ant
This is the narrowest and shallowest of all the Norfolk Broads rivers. It links the River Bure with the Dilham Canal. A peaceful, winding journey through romantic nature brings one to Barton resp. Sutton Broads. The tides have hardly any influence here.
River Thurne
Potter Heigham, what is probably the best known town in the Norfolk Broads is on this river. The flat landscape offers wonderful views as well as sunrises and sunsets. On the other hand, the wind is often very strong.
