Boating Holidays in Wroxham & Horning
Known as the 'capital' of the Norfolk Broads and set on one of its prettiest rivers, bustling Wroxham village makes an excellent base for easy cruising to many outstanding natural and historic attractions. Lying just to the north is Coltishall, a historic village mentioned in the Doomsday Book, and to the south are the open waters of Wroxham Broad, Hoveton’s nature trail and abundant wildlife and good fishing at lovely Salhouse Broad. Further south lie Ranworth Broad, home to the Broadland Conservation Centre and a church tower offering breathtaking views, and the village of Horning.
Wroxham is home to 'the world’s largest village store' and a station on the Bure Valley Steam Railway.
From the timeless and famously picturesque village of Horning, whose thatched boathouses and traditional inns make it one of the prettiest spots in the Norfolk Broads, you’ll enjoy gentle cruising to many of Broadland’s most popular attractions. Beautiful How Hill on the River Ant, Potter Heigham and its 13th century bridge, the evocative ruins of St Benet’s Abbey and the east coast resort of Great Yarmouth’s traditional seaside entertainments are all easily accessible as are longer cruises to Norwich, taking in Breydon Water, the Berney Arms Windmill and Reedham chain ferry on the way.
