Oulton Broad

Oulto Broad satellite viewBroadlands Park is on the South shore of Oulton Broad. Nearby to the East is Nicholas Everitt Park, within which is Pets Corner Children's Zoo while to the West is the edge of Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve (Suffolk Wildlife Trust).

A short stroll to the East of Nicholas Everitt Park, Oulton Broad village has a good range of restaurants, takeaways, pubs and small shops.

At the Eastern edge of the Broad, you will find Waveney River Tours located beside Mutford Lock, a restored Sea Lock that separates the freshwater Broad from the seawater in Lake Lothing, which opens to the sea at Lowestoft. The lock is frequently in operation allowing coastal craft access to the Broads. Self-drive Day Boat hire is also available here.
Videos of a walk through Nicholas Everitt Park and a boat trip along Lake Lothing can be found on thelowestoftmile.co.uk.

Lowestoft is about 2.5 miles from Oulton Broad, an easy trip by car, bus or train from Oulton Broad South (Lowestoft Railway Station is in the town centre, next to the shopping streets and a short stroll to the seafront).

Famous for being the most easterly town and the first place to see the sunrise in the UK, the town is a favourite with families, and there's plenty to see and do, with a variety of shops, three theatres and a cinema, two piers, a long promenade beside the long wide sandy beach with several places to stop for ice creams or coffee. The recently relaunched glass pavillion has a bar run by a local brewer and several specialist food kiosks.

The Daily Telegraph recently published a review of Lowestoft.

Other places to explore

On the coast, just a short way North is the resort of Great Yarmouth with its long sandy beach and amusement parks. To the South is Southwold with its popular pier and harbour. While a short drive inland is the market town of Beccles on the River Waveny.

Or venture further inland to explore the Broads or maybe visit historic Norwich. In the medieval era, Norwich was the largest and wealthiest provincial city in England, second only in importance to London. Many of the old buildings remain; the Cathedral dates from 1096, and the spire, measuring 315 ft (96 m), is the second-tallest in England and also has the second-largest cloisters in England. Within the city is a good variety of shopping, an open-air market and many places to eat & drink.
