Discovery Hubs are designed to promote The Broads as a sustainable, car-free destination, creating a network that provides a way to explore the Broads on foot, by bike and on the water. As accessible information points, they explain the history, wildlife and landscape of the area and will encourage people to visit the many and varied aspects of the National Park. They are great places to relax and soak up the unique atmosphere of the Broads and to access local services, attractions and experiences.
Conceived and built by the Broads Charitable Trust, in cooperation with the Broads Authority, Discovery Hubs promote sustainable, low-impact discovery of the National Park throughout the year. The Trust is aiming to roll out a network of hubs across The Broads over the next two years and is looking for funding from local councils, private companies, public bodies and charities who would like to get involved in enabling sustainable, car-free travel across the whole of the National Park.
The Richardson’s Boating Holidays story began in 1944 when Mr Robert Richardson Jnr purchased his first motor cruiser and started offering boating holidays on the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads. Today, operating from Stalham Marina, we now have the largest holiday charter fleet in the Broads National Park and are proud to support the Broads Trust and its network of Discovery Hubs, which enable visitors to discover the natural beauty and hidden corners of this unique and beautiful area.
