The clue's in the name at this riverside holiday park with a private marina, perfectly positioned for exploring the Norfolk Broads with its wildlife-filled marshes as well as the fabulous coastline. It also has access to the ferry to Carlton Marshes nature reserve.

On-site facilities include a playground and an indoor pool, and you can hire bikes to explore the area on two wheels, canoes and kayaks, or even a day cruiser. Or if you happen to have your own boat, the mooring facilities are second to none.

Back on dry land, the on-site pub serves local produce or you can grab a pizza from the takeaway or make use of the local shop to stock up to cook a family meal in your holiday lodge or farmhouse accommodation.

All accommodation caters extremely well for families, and some accepts dogs too. Options sleep up to 10, some with a hot tub so you can take a dip once the kids are in bed.


Waveney River Centre is around 12km from Great Yarmouth and 20km from Norwich.
