Book a break in Wroxham on The Norfolk Broads
In a beautiful elevated spot overlooking the River Bure, Wroxham is one of the most popular destinations for Broads explorers, and is often called the Capital of the Broads. The village, and the nearby Wroxham Broad, is home to the Norfolk Broads Yacht Club, and thanks to Wroxham Broad’s wide open waters, it’s a great place to develop your piloting skills. The village itself is well known as an important wildlife habitat, and birdwatchers will love discovering the astonishing wealth of birdlife which surrounds Wroxham.
As well as these natural delights, Wroxham boasts some of the most picturesque listed architecture in the county, including the stunning Church of St Mary the Virgin, built of flint and limestone and with parts dating back to the 12th century. The Trafford Museum, which is located in St Mary’s Churchyard, lets you discover the history of this unique building and its surroundings.
Wroxham is home to Roys, the largest independent supermarket in Britain, which has a unique style all of its own. If you need to stock up on supplies, Wroxham shopping is among the best on the Broads. If you’re interested in finding out about the fascinating history of the Broads, Wroxham is home to two traditional wherry boats, which are currently being restored at the Wherry Yacht Charter Charitable Trust on Hartwell Road.
Just across the River Bure from Wroxham is its sister village of Hoveton, where you’ll find a train station which is handy for day trips to Norwich, as well as some delightful traditional architecture. Make sure you don’t miss out on Wroxham and Hoveton, as this delightful region of the Broads is among the most beautiful in the whole network.
