East Anglia is a truly unique place. From the acres of flat land studded with windmills to the beautiful coastal views, the region has an atmopshere and a pace of life that are entirely its own. But for those who want to explore in true East Anglian style, there really is only one way to travel.
The ancient ferry route from Burgh St Peter to Carlton Marshes allows rambers, cyclists and other intrepid explorers to cross from Norfolk to Suffolk, and (if they’re feeling brave!) to take on the 77 mile Angles Way, which runs from Great Yarmouth to Knetishall Heath near Thetford.
This ancient ferry route was once used by south Norfolk villagers to travel to Lowestoft’s fish market, making it a great way to get in touch with the history of the area. The route fell out of use as locals came to rely on cars instead of more traditional modes of transport, but thanks to the popularity of the region among tourists, the ferry has been reinstated.
Running from dawn till dusk, the ferry can transport up to 12 people, and costs £2 one way, £3 return or £10 for a family. For details or any other enquiries, call Waveney River Centre on +44 (0) 1502 677 343
