Waveney Valley Dog Friendly Guide

Of course, there are endless beautiful walks to enjoy with your four-legged friend in the Waveney Valley, but it's always useful to have some tips of other dog-friendly activities and places to go.  Here's a few ideas.

East Anglian Transport Museum

Here’s a different day out for your dog!  East Anglian Transport Museum welcomes well-behaved dogs to bring their owners along to discover the fascinating world of the area’s transport history.  The museum has one of the widest ranges of preserved vehicles as any, including trams, buses and trolley buses.  The ‘street scene’ layout of the museum gives a real essence of days gone by. 

Waveney River Tours, Oulton Broad

Waveney River Tours have been operated from Oulton Broad since the 1970s, so captain and crew can offer excellent local knowledge during your trip on the water. There’s  a choice of a 90-minute tour along the Waveney to Burgh St Peter and back or a 40-minute circular tour of Oulton Broad, both equally enjoyable.  Onboard there is a licenced bar and cafe.  Self-drive day boats are also available.
