Whilst dogs must be on leads when visiting the Hickling Broad part of this circular walk for the safety of the wildlife, dogs are very welcome to explore the area with their owners.

Also try the Wind Energy Museum in the nearby Repps with Bastwick. Just a 20-minute walk west down the river from Potter Heigham Bridge, most of the museum is outdoors and the dogs will enjoy taking in the countryside and the displays of windmills. This is a great option for those with children, who can learn about the history of windmills and drainage mills and the historic importance of these in the Broads National Park.
