Yare Valley Walk


11 km / 7 miles
This follows the River Yare from Bowthorpe Southern Park all the way to Marston Marsh, which is close to the Ipswich Road, through a range of different habitats, including three Local Nature Reserves - Danby Wood, Marston Marsh and Earlham Woods.

The walk also goes by the man-made broad at the University of East Anglia, created in the 1970s. Norwich Fringe Project has built a boardwalk that makes this part of the walk accessible even in wet conditions.
