Virtual Maps


To take a virtual tour of the area, click any of the map outlines on the keymap on the left to view that area at a much larger scale.

These virtual tour maps contain numerous red 'hotspots', which can be clicked to view either photos or links to web sites of local interest.

I receive many enquiries about which maps have the best coverage of the Norfolk Broads Area.

I myself use three:

  • the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL40, which has the most waterside detail at 4cm-1km scale.
  • The Geo 'The Broads' map at 2cm-1km scale, which comprehensively covers both waterside detail and navigational information.
  • Hamilton's Navigations handbook and maps, with detailed text descriptions of each bank.

All three are available from many local Broads businesses or
