The beautiful Barton Broad is one of the most popular with visitors because of the vast selection of green open areas that surround it, which are home to many species of wildlife and rare vegetation. It is said that Admiral Lord Nelson often spent time here as a child and may have even learned to sail on the broad. A lot of the broad is accessible on foot, so take a stroll along the convenient walkway leading to the water’s edge. Hire a canoe to explore the broad yourself, or relax on one of the many tour boats in the area. There is a convenient car park around half a mile away, near the village of Neatishead, but there is also parking in and around the village of Barton Turf.
