Love the broads is the Visitor Giving Scheme for the Broads National Park. It aims to inspire people to care for the environment through making a small donation at key tourism sites, through their accommodation provider, or by giving money directly.  If every visitor to the Broads National Park gave just £1 we could raise £7 million each year for projects to protect the Broads in the future.

 

How it works

Money is collected by the Broads Trust in a variety of ways and given to projects that will look after the beautiful landscapes and environment of the Broads. With your help, we work alongside local businesses and community groups to improve sustainable practices, and to make sure that the money raised goes to the places that need it most – so that the Broads National Park remains amazing and beautiful to visit.

Love the Broads is administered by the Broads Trust, an independent charity with Trustees from local businesses, the Broads Society and the Broads Authority.

This newly printed booklet shows a selection of recommended cycle trails around the Northern and Southern Broads.  The network comprises 16 circular routes from 10-25 miles with interlinking connections.  Including places to visit and to stop for refreshments along the way.

Our grateful thanks to Archant and Richardson’s Family Holidays who have produced, published and sponsored this fantastic booklet – a must-have for all lovers of cycling.  Available for a suggested donation of just £3 from Tourist Information Centres and tourism businesses.  All donations will be used to help to keep the Broads special for the future.

You can download all of the maps on the following site for free but if you enjoy these rides, a small donation to the Broads Trust can help fund projects to ensure that the Broads are kept just the way they should be for the benefit of local communities and visitors alike. A donation of £2 per download would help us keep the Broads special. The Broads Trust is an independent registered charity. Each year funds will go towards improving access and interpretation, conservation, and education for the next generations and caring for our rich biodiversity.
