We have been looking for options for guests that may be seeking open spaces, walking or maybe some fitness activities whilst Staying in Norwich.
The closest opportunity is right behind us at the Riverside Leisure Centre. There is a full length swimming pool, a gym, sauna, steam room. Guests can go in an pay for a visit. There are hairdryers in the changing rooms.
Around a mile away is Whitlingham Broad & Whitlingham Outdoor Centre, the closest access to the Norfolk Broads. We regularly run and cycle around the broad and a return trip (of the whole area) on foot is around 9km.
The Norfolk Broads! A real gem and most definitely worth a visit, a walk and if time allows a day boat trip.
There is a small park at Trowse, again around a mile and just before Whitlingham. The village is sweet, there are 3 pubs restaurants including a decent vegetarian restaurant.
