Wroxham & Hoveton, Norfolk

 

Wroxham has become known as the capital of the Norfolk Broads, and is where boating holidays started in the late 1800's. It has become quite popular over the years with hotels, tea rooms and gift shops springing up near the river to attract holidaymakers to the village.

 

The left bank of the river is actually Hoveton St John, Hoveton being on the right, but they have both come to be known as Wroxham. There is a good range of shops, but the most famous is Roys of Wroxham, probably the largest village store in the country.

Wroxham Bridge

 

Wroxham Bridge is a semi-circular road bridge with only 7ft 3in headroom at average high water. The bridge is probably the most difficult to navigate after Potter Heigham Bridge. Like Potter Heigham, there is now a Bridge Pilot for those skippers not wishing to take their boats through the bridge. The new footbridge provides locals and visitors access to both sides of the river.


Riverside features


Downstream of the bridge the river opens up, with the Hotel Wroxham and many boatyards on the left and an attractive development of holiday homes and apartments on the right.

 

A little further on thatched cottages and lodges line the banks, long gardens sweep down to the waters edge, large houses can just be glimpsed through the trees. Soon the trees close in and Wroxham is left behind as the River Bure meanders along to to the next village of Horning.
