Below are some of the good areas to go boating:

Norfolk Broads

A waterways holiday on the Norfolk Broads with the family can be the perfect get away for a fun-filled weekend, or over the week for a longer break. Marinas are introducing new boats to their fleets all the time, with new homely comforts, furnishings and mod cons such as bow and stern thrusters. Other features include solar panels and eco hulls as we become a more environmentally conscious society. The eco hull reduces the amount of splash created by the boat, which also increases the fuel efficiency on the boat, so good news all round!
