Incredibly dull and boring 2hour trip, and endless stream of the same trees and birds and literally nothing else. So dull I slept through a sizable chunk of the trip and caught up with work emails! Avoid if you want to stay awake!More

The best place to park the car is next to the departure point of the boat trip in the pay and display car park as it is quite large. The booking point is then only approximately 50 metres away. This is at Wroxham.
