It’s recommend that you park your hire car and take a tourist boat trip down the waterways from Wroxham, as that’s one of the best way to see The Broads.
The city of Norwich is filled with winding, cobbled streets where you can stumble upon everything from busy sushi bars to old-fashioned toyshops. The highlight is the 9th century Norwich Cathedral, which has the second highest spire in England. Another must-see is Norwich Castle, a Norman palace that’s now a museum.
Cambridge is a 53-mile drive from Norfolk by rental car and you can spend the day strolling by the river Cam and exploring the beautiful college buildings of one of the world’s greatest universities.
