When it comes to boat and Norfolk Broads holidays there are few places in the United Kingdom as beautiful or as worthwhile as Wroxham on the River Bure. It is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the relaxed lifestyle and pace of river life. Wroxham is a holiday area with a proud history. Way back in 1878 John Loyes started hiring out boats to tourists, and since then it has turned into a thriving business for many people in the Wroxham area.
One of the best things about having a boating holiday in Wroxham is the sheer number of Boat Yards you have to choose from, all based on the River Bure Broads near Wroxham.
Whatever type of boating experience you want is available such as River Day Cruisers, Boat Tours, Self Drive House Boats or specialised Fishing Craft. Or if you would rather stay on dry land and watch the River flow past then there are many Wroxham riverside cottages, log cabins or chalets to hire literally right on the banks of the Broads.
Wroxham itself is actually made up of two connected villages – Wroxham and Hoveton seperated by the River Bure. Interestingly enough most of the signs say Wroxham, but many of the facilities are on one side of Wroxham Bridge in Hoveton, such as the famous Roys stores and many of the village shops.
Wroxham proves an ideal base for exploring the waterways of Norfolk – sitting in the heart of the Norfolk broads offering easy access to many of the Broads such as Hickling Broad, Hoveton Great Broad and of course Wroxham Broad itself.
