During a weekend you may well hear the cheering crowds in support of Norwich city football club at carrow road. As the hot air balloon gains height the Norfolk broads come clearly into view to the east. These low lying wetlands encompass the broads of Wroxham, Ranworth, Hickling and Horsey. The landscape changes dramatically with thatched cottages and winding waterways. This area is rich in wildlife and a beauty to behold.
