A study of the Broads can be a full-day or half-day activity depending on your requirements.
A half-day activity will involve using self-drive boats from Wroxham, travelling to Wroxham and Salhouse Broads. This is an ideal way to examine the habitat and examine the problems it faces from tourism which has led to erosion of the banks and destruction of the natural habitat. The group will be asked to reflect upon the conflict between the continued and expanding use of the Broads by pleasure craft and the need to protect the environment and the creatures that live there.
For the remaining half-day, if the full-day option is chosen, you will travel to Sea Palling to examine the sea defences designed to protect the broadland habitat and to see how they are changing the very nature of the coast there. You will then visit Happisburgh where the serious erosion of the cliffs is not only leading to the gradual disappearance of the village but could undermine the whole Sea Defence Plan for the Broads.
This is an excellent opportunity to experience this unique environment which is unlike anywhere else in the UK.
