Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden - Boat Trips

Book Tickets Online


130 acres of ancient woodland with over 3.5 miles of paths. We have a tearoom, gift shop, bird hides, children's nature trail and plant sales area. We also have a programme of events all year round including warden walks and water sports - details can be found on our website. From March each year, we run boat trips on our private broad. Also, we are dog friendly.

Visit in the spring to see the UK's finest collection of Candelabra Primulas as well as bluebells, camellia's and wood anemones. Summer brings Hydrangeas, Philadelphus and many wild flowers. Migrant birds and other wildlife come to the garden in the autumn, and there are many varieties of fungi and toadstools. Winter walks are great for spotting King Fishers, Deer and Otters.

Visit the Kingfisher Tea Room - family friendly cafe is located on the edge of the beautiful Woodland and Water Garden at Fairhaven which has a private access to South Walsham Inner Broad.
