The Broads National Park Weather Forecast

The Broads National Park is 303 square kilometres and made up of a series of rivers and broads (lakes). Just over 200 kilometres of these waterways are navigable, covering seven rivers and 63 broads, most of which are less than 4 metres deep. The broads range from small ponds to large areas such as Hickling, Barton and Breydon.

Area: 305 sq km

Designated: 1989

The Broads are technically not a National Park, although they have been given similar status and been welcomed into the National Park 'family'. This is because they are managed by the Broads Authority, which has the same powers and duties as a National Park, but is still separate. That being said, the Broads – both in Norfolk and Suffolk – are still seen by many as being a bona fide National Park.

Unlike the Cairngorms and Snowdonia National Parks, which pride themselves on reaching to the skies, the attraction of The Broads is its low-lying nature, with some walking routes even being below the accepted sea level.

The Broads are Britain's largest protected wetland and are home to many different types of wildlife, especially birdlife such as the Grey Heron and the Egyptian Goose.
