I have nothing against Blackpool but a Broads holiday is (for us anyway)


Eating a fish supper watching the sun set on a boat on the Broads


Sitting up until the early hours just listening to the water and the wild life


Fishing in the evening with a beer or two


Reading a good book with the roof back and a glass of wine


Sitting at the Wroxham hotel watching the fun at the bridge (Alan Ranworth Breeze guilty of that lol)


Wild mooring or mud weighting, feeling like you are the only people on the planet


Nah you can have Blackpool, no comparison is there?

I wonder if the survey was taken during the Blackpool Illuminations :naughty:, most of the chips I have had there are a bit dire, after saying that I have not been to Blackpool since the children were little and we stayed at Lytham St Annes not Blackpool. We have been to Devon every year since and of course the Broads.

As one who has graced the Cricket Ground at B'pool, and stayed in the B'pool area many times, well, lets face it its only a three hour drive or so for me. I have to say, never tried their fish n chips. The place was looking pretty sad for itself the last time I drove down the so called Golden Mile.

However, the locals are very friendly and the entertainment is cheap compared tae doon souf. BUT, first!!! Geez a breck wul you, yer at the kiddin. 


If they had said Bridlington becoz of Fish n Chips, I widny argue wi that wan.


I have been to all of the first nine places, bar that part of Cornwall. Stonehenge may have history, but the Norfolk Broads are light years ahead when it comes to holidaying than there. Only the lakes on a bright sunny day may win IMHO.



cheers Iain.

Hi Ian,


As it is about English holiday places, I kept my totally biased opinions of Bonnie Scotland  out of the thread.  :naughty:


However, if anyone requires advice about up this way, please ask. I may be able to help you.



cheers Iain.
