Hi all 4 of us will be making our first trip on the broads on the 8th of july and we are looking for a 7 day itinerary starting in acle and hoping to see all the nice villages and sites of the northern broads, while looking to moor up at pubs along the route for the night on the way.  Any tips would be greatly appreciated thanks.

If you are going to need a pub to save cooking for yourselves I suggest that you need to arrive at your evening mooring early afternoon after people stopping for lunch have moved on (hopefully)..  The Broads will be busy at that time of year so pub moorings will be at a premium.
The new inn at Horning allows you to book a mooring which can be helpful, not sure who else does this.
Have some emergency rations on board just in case (liquid & solid)
Wroxham.. Moor in Faircrafts yard if you can't get under the bribge
Ludham.. moor at Womack Water and walk to the village
Potter free moorings or Herbert Woods yard, walk to the Falgate..
Ranworth Broad pub close by.
Stokesby pub close by.
Colishall couple pubs close to the moorings
Stalham a few pubs there
Neatishead walk to pub from moorings
Thurne Dyke moorings and pub close by.
Try to have a plan B just in case the moorings are full

You can book moorings at Hotel Wroxham and evening moorings at The Swan at Horning. The Lion at Thurne has just re-opened and the moorings in Thurne dyke are close by. As Dzign has said, moorings at and around Pubs fill up very quickly.

You can also book a mooring at the New Inn, Horning, but as soon as you can in advance - they are very popular, particularly during the  busy holiday periods and when they have live music on.

Thanks for your feedback everyone, you have been a great help, i also forgot to mention that our boat is quite tall so are we going to have problems with any of the bridges

Hi Andy , and welcome....hopeyou have a great time, but caution; it's addictive Smile

If you have 'a tall boat' and are concerned if it will fit, call the boatyard and ask what its airdraft is....the Green Book ( see NSBA online) will tellyou bridge heights and give you an idea.
All part of the fun, doing research beforehand Smile

Not 'problems', but it won't fit you can't get through, but anyway as hirers you'll be told to use the pilot anyway so he takes the risk.

Enjoy
