It's So Easy to spend a day at Oulton Broad and does not have to cost a fortune. Stroll around the gold award winning and historic Nicholas Everitt Park on the banks of Oulton Broad and watch the boats sailing over the Broad. Feed the ducks (Hopefully from the proper food available from local business around the park!
