A warm, friendly Heather welcome

We are delighted to share Heather, an historic boat, artistic refuge and home for over a century, laying on the ancient Broads Waterways of Norfolk.

It is our aim to preserve the distinctive character of Heather, enabling future generations to enjoy her charms. We welcome you to explore the houseboat and bountiful riverside beyond...

Broads Tourism

Heather's crew went along to the Tourism Forum meeting on the afternoon of Wednesday 16th November, held at the delightful Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden at South Walsham. Items that were discussed included the upcoming Outdoors Festival of 2012, the benefits of Green Tourism and talks by organisations like Visit East Anglia.

The purpose of Broads Tourism is to positively promote the Broads as a leading destination, working alongside a wide range of partners to ensure the Broads is an excellent place to visit, work and live. The Forum is made up of paid members and three members' meetings take place each year.

People chose to come to Broadland from all over the world to see what is a unique tapestry of fen, water craft, wildlife, wind mills and quaint villages interwoven with over 200 miles of rivers.

All examples of classic boats and objects of historic interest like wind pumps; as mainstay cultural assets of the Broads would benefit from being collectively involved in Broads Tourism.
