Beccles in Suffolk

Visiting Beccles

Although considered by many to be entirely within the county of Norfolk, the "Norfolk Broads" do creep into North Suffolk too. An example of this is the Suffolk market town of Beccles. This lovely town makes a great place to visit during your holiday; whether you are just passing through, or maybe starting your holiday in Beccles.

Beccles Quay

If you are passing through Beccles on your boating holiday, you'll cruise in via the River Waveney; and the chances are you'll moor up at Beccles Quay. Beccles Quay makes a superb place to stop for a night or two. There are showers available to use, as well as the ability for your boat to take on water. And it's only a short walk into Beccles town centre. You'll find all the major banks, a couple of supermarkets, and several independant shops; including butchers and green-grocers. If you really want to treat yourself, pop into Seppings Butchers for some fine sausages! And should you fancy a swim, Beccles Lido is the place for you, positioned right next to the River Waveney, this open air swimming pool is ideal for an early morning swim.

Boat yards at Beccles

If you want to take in the River Waveney and Beccles during your tour of the Norfolk Broads - the boatyard to look at is Topcraft Cruisers in Oulton Broad. This boatyard is about 8 miles from Beccles, and allows you to explore both the River Waveney and the Norfolk Broads. If you want to stay at beccles, it's well worth having a look at the houseboats provided by Hippersons boatyard. This boatyard is just up the road from Beccles Quay, and offers house-boats (so not suitable for cruising).

Other boat-yards on the Norfolk Broads

For quite a selection of boats on the Norfolk Borads, you can find boat-yards in Acle, Beccles and Oulton Broad, Brundall, Hickling & Stalham, and Wroxham & Horning. Whatever area of the Norfolk Broads you want to explore, there's likely to be a boat-yard nearby to start your boating holiday.
