The River Yare is a river in the Englishmarker county of Norfolk. In its lower reaches the river connects with the navigable waterways of The Broads.

The river rises south of Derehammarker. From there it flows in a generally eastward direction passing Barnham Broommarker and is joined by the River Tiffeymarker before reaching Bawburghmarker. It then skirts the southern fringes of the city of Norwichmarker, passing through Colneymarker, Cringlefordmarker, Lakenham and Trowsemarker. At Whitlinghammarker it is joined by the River Wensummarker, which flows through the centre of the city, before flowing eastward into The Broads, passing the villages of Bramertonmarker, Surlinghammarker, Rockland St. Marymarker and Cantleymarker. Just before Reedhammarker at Hardley Cross (erected in 1676) it is joined by the River Chetmarker. The cross marks the ancient boundary between the City of Norwichmarker and Borough of Great Yarmouthmarker. Beyond Reedham the river passes the famously isolated marshland settlement of Berney Armsmarker before entering the tidal lake of Breydon Water. Here the Yare is joined by the Rivers Buremarker and Waveney and finally flows into the North Seamarker at Gorlestonmarker, Great Yarmouthmarker.

The river is navigable to small coastal vessels from Norwichmarker to the sea, and in former times carried significant commercial traffic to that city. At Reedham the river is joined by the Haddiscoe Cut, a canal which provides a direct navigable link to the River Waveney at Haddiscoemarker avoiding Breydon Water.

Wherryman's Way

Opened in 2005, the 35 mile long Wherryman's Way follows the route of the historic Broads trading wherries between Norwich and Great Yarmouth. It winds through existing footpaths, open marshes, reedbeds, grazing meadows and riverside villages along the banks of the River Yare. The path passes numerous information panels, sculptures and audio posts which seek to bring to life the characters and history of the route.
