National Park. Ludham is surrounded by fields and marshes and there
are plenty of opportunities for walking, boating and bird watching and
exploring the Norfolk Broads National Park. Womack Water - Ludhams own
small broad and staithe has moorings for boats and is a pleasant place to

There are two village pubs, small but good
range of shops for all your basic provisions.
The coast is six miles away and the larger
Broadland towns of Wroxham
seven miles. Norwich
are both about half and hours drive away.
At How Hill
there are stretches of
sedge and reed, marsh meadows, dykes, a woodland and open water. Here
there is a small information centre and museum detailing life as a

still used for traditional thatching. An Edwardian style electric boat
runs trips through the dykes and marshes at certain times of the year.
