Investigating East Anglia’s only National Park, the Norfolk Borads has long been a popular destination for day trippers and holiday makers, with many tourists basing their visit in the ‘honeypot’ town of Wroxham.

Together with Broads Tours this split day course has a half-day study of the broads delivered in partnership with Natural England. With the exclusive use of a 50 berth boat we discuss and observe the varying land use and challenges faced by tourism in the National Park during a 2 hour cruise. We also describe the role of the Broads Authority, the evolution of the tourist industry here and the processes of eutrophication and succession.

The second session of the day considers how the town of Wroxham is influenced by tourists with students facilitated to collect a range of qualitative and quantitative data using a range of traditional and modern techniques.

This is a popular course in a popular part of East Anglia and therefore must be booked early.

*This course can cater for up to 100 students – but these numbers would need to be divided into 2 groups who alternate the 2 sessions during the day. *
