Your friendly online community

Since 2007 we’ve been helping visitors to the Norfolk Broads get the most out of their adventure. From where to go and what to do on your first night, right down to how you tie the right knots, and there's plenty of space to say more of what you are passionate about.

It’s like a friendly local pub - always welcoming and you are sure to have a laugh and make some new friends along the way too.

NBN is a place where people who have built friendships online can continue them in person.

Thousands of members

We are one of the largest online communities dedicated to the Norfolk Broads. You will find many people with a diverse range of backgrounds, ages and skills.

It's a place where you can share your own experiences, ask questions and learn about local news and events.

And you've got the privacy of choosing a username rather than having to sign up using your real name.

Access to discounts, events and more!

Being a member is and has always been free though any donations are gratefully received.

Throughout the year we organise ‘Meets’ where you can come along be it on your own boat, stop by for a few hours on your holiday hire boat, or even pop along by car.

We’ve also teamed up with local businesses with discounts for our members making this one of the few places in life where you do get something for nothing.
