Venue type: Outdoor

Set in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden is a secret hideaway just waiting to be discovered.

Venture into its four miles of woodland walks and discover the picturesque Norfolk countryside. With so many cultivated trees, plants and peculiar wildlife these gardens are a hotspot for rare birds. Let your children search for the birds, squirrels and tiny creatures that habitat the Norfolk Broads, and learn how to conserve their habitats too!

You can even hop aboard Primrose, the garden’s Edwardian style river cruiser, and glide along the river for fifty-minutes whilst catching a glimpse of the historic ruins of St Benet’s Abbey. But if you’d rather go on a shorter ride, then you should take your family aboard Primula, a boat that takes regular twenty-minute trips. For a small fee, you can even bring your family dog on the boat!

  • Four miles of woodland walks
  • Fifty & twenty-minute boat rides
  • Learn about conservation


  • Parking Parking Available On-site
