A lovely church and if your dating there's 89 steps up, very steep and spiral, 2 ladders but an amazing view, must be fit! There's a little tea room that's has cakes and clean toilets nearby.

A well worth while water trail with Norfolk Wildlife Trust around Ranworth Broad. Trevor, our guide, was most informative and very helpful. We were a group of 7 including 2 young children and the 45 min tour was just an ideal length of time - we saw Great Crested Grebes, Little Egrets, herons, Tufted ducks, terns, Mallards, Teal, swans and...

This is a beautiful, unspoilt location in the nature reserve. There's a floating information centre and shop at the end as well as boat trips varying in price and length. The walk is short, but great for people with pushchairs or wheelchairs. There's no toilet on the broads but public toilets near the car park. I'd recommend going to The... More

Fantastic tour from the beautiful thatched nature centre, personalised tour and interesting conversation about ecology and wildlife from the inspiring Maria. Also climbed the church tower for the views and had cake at the church cafe. Great place to see otters, grebes and swallowtail butterflies, the latter later in the year.

What a fantastic day out seeing Ranworth broad via the NWT boat. The boat leader was very helpful, engaging the children looking for ducks, teal and tufted duck and the elusive otter! Loads to see and do. Kids can't wait to go back. Thank you

Came here on a boat trip. Lovely, peaceful broad with plenty of wildlife, we saw birds and red deer. Plenty of free mooring. It's Norfolk, what's not to like?

We recently moved to this area, and luckily for us Ranworth Broad is only a few minutes drive away. Apart from the views of the Broad, there is car parking outside of the shop/tearooms, and overspill parking just a few yards further along the lane, though only open in season. Toilets appear to only be open at weekends and daily... More

This is one of my favourite broads, returned this year after a gap of over twenty years and it still meets my expectations. Did the climb up the Church Tower again, well worth it!

The reserve is well maintained with good footpath. It was off season, so the floating building was closed.
