The Broads National Park is in the running to be named the UK’s best, but needs your help to sail to victory.

The stunning network of waterways spans over 125 miles across Norfolk and Suffolk and now only the North York Moors, located in Yorkshire, stands in the way of the Broads being named the country’s best national park.

Currently in second position with 1,075 votes, the iconic landscape needs 600 more to move into the winning spot.

The man-made wetland is famous for its natural beauty, unique wildlife and picturesque towns and villages that punctuate the waterways.

The park also boasts seven rivers and 63 broads and was promoted to national park status by the Broads Authority in January 2015.

Other contenders include the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Snowdonia and the New Forest.

The vote closes on May 16 and is conducted by Holiday Lettings in partnership with Trip Advisor.
