NWT Ranworth Broad is a fantastic place to bring your children, suiting smaller groups especially well. Situated only 20 minutes outside Norwich, Ranworth contains a wide range of habitats and a fantastic variety of wildlife, all to be seen from 750m of boardwalk. Find our floating visitor centre, nestled in reeds, with amazing views out across the open water, at the end.

Your day here will reflect the landscape, habitats and history of Ranworth Broad, whilst complimenting your school-based learning, as we tailor-make a timetable that suits your group’s requirements.

Favourite sessions include pond dipping, boat trips and habitat trails but there is a wide selection of interactive, hands-on activities that appeal to all ages and learning styles.
