Easier access

Well-managed public access is vital to ensuring the Broads remains a spectacular place for escape, recreation and enjoyment

Organisations and businesses are working to help as many people as possible experience the special magic of the Broads, with wheelchair accessible boats available, visitor attractions with facilities to help people with visual or hearing impairments and boardwalks suitable for wheelchair users.

For more details please read the Easier Access Guide and watch the Access All Areas video below. You can also contact the Broads Information Centres at Hoveton and How Hill. All are wheelchair accessible (although access is limited at How Hill) and all have an induction loop.

Norfolk Trails have also produced a series of booklets on 'access tested walks' that you can download on their access tested trails page.

Mik Scarlet, presenter of the video below, said: “With my job as a broadcaster and journalist I am lucky enough to travel all over the country, and even the world. There are, however, places I just seem to never have managed to visit and the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads was one of those places, despite always wanting to stay there.

“The landscape, the wildlife and the activities all have me hooked, but the most impressive thing is how committed everyone I met is to accessibility. If you, a family member or friend are disabled you must visit the Broads. I know I will be back, very soon.”

You can read more about Mik’s visit to the Broads in our Broadcaster visitor magazine. If you have a visual impairment and would like to receive a large print version of Broadcaster please contact us, or you'll find an online version and a large print version on our downloads page.
