Known as ‘Britain’s Magical Waterland’, the Norfolk Broads is a network of sparkling rivers, creeks and tranquil lakes.
Boats of every shape and size, from canoes to cruisers, are synonymous with these waterways, so if being skipper for the day and navigating your family through this dream-like landscape sounds like you, then head for Wroxham! This busy village is the capital of the Broads and home to many boatyards.
Wroxham and its connecting village of Hoveton have many visitor attractions, pubs, restaurants and shops. Stay a while and take a look at the Bure Valley steam railway or drop into Roys renowned department store – ‘The largest village store in the world!’ Oh, and don’t miss Wroxham Barns with its wonderful array of craft shops, farm animals and much more.
Take time to wander around the many villages which dot the waterside – Salhouse, Horning and Ranworth all have their charms. When it’s time for some nourishment, there are welcoming riverside pubs and hotels where you can moor up, enjoy some local ale and a hearty home-cooked meal.
