Picture perfect: The Norfolk Broads in colour
With such vast and varied landscapes, the Norfolk Broads are, naturally, a haven for photographers, artists, and writers, all of whom clamour for the most inspiring views. It’s little wonder then, that Norfolk is blessed with so many galleries, museums, and noteworthy exhibitions, each displaying some of the best locally created pieces, and images from the Broads themselves. Norwich, for example, is home to some breathtaking art collections, with galleries nestling in the shadow of the city’s impressive cathedral. Of course, there are numerous galleries, big and small, dotted around the scenic Broads – discovering each one will be an adventure in itself.
