Swallows and Amazons


When people think of Swallows and Amazons, thoughts automatically turn to the Lake District.

But not all of the children’s adventures took place in the north – Ransome also brought his stories to the East. The Callums spent two books playing around on the Norfolk Broads, and two other books are set around the River Orwell in Suffolk.

Why not have your own Swallows and Amazons adventure on the Broads or in the Orwell Valley?
