It is also well known for the Norfolk Broads, an extensive waterway that can be fully explored by boat. There are many towns and villages within Norfolk, all with their own individual characters. The port of King's Lynn has a long trading history, and today it still has large trade links with the rest of Europe.

They consist of large expanses of water, long meandering rivers and smaller lakes and dykes and are unique throughout Britain.
