Norfolk Broads Towns and Villages - Wroxham Map

River BureRiver Bure

Often referred to as "The Capital of the Broads", Wroxham lies between Horning and Coltishall on the river Bure. The river separates Wroxham on one side from Hoveton on the other bank though, to all intents and purposes, they are one entity. The river here is spanned by Wroxham Bridge which due to its low arch requires careful passage through, probably with the assistance of the bridge pilot - the pick-up and drop-off points for which are shown on the map. Wroxham is a large village - almost a town. The centre is dominated by Roys collection of stores, including a large supermarket, clothing, gifts, toys, and even a garden centre. The river is the focal point with cafes, bars, and restaurants all offering a view of passing boats on this busy stretch of the Bure. Moorings are available on both sides of the bridge and at any of the boatyards off the main river. 

Local Attractions: Bure Valley Narrow Gauge Railway travels from Wroxham to Aylsham pulled by miniature steam engines. Wroxham Miniature Worlds is an Indoor model railway exhibition located close to Wroxham train station. Bewilderwood Children's Adventure Park is a short taxi ride away as are The Wroxham Barns which hosts craft demos, a junior farm, mini-golf, a funfair & shopping.

Eating and Drinking: The Wroxham Hotel and the Kings Head Public House are located either side of the bridge with moorings. Kens Traditional Fish & Chip Restaurant, McDonald's, Yim Siam Thai Restaurant, Indian Spoon, and many other small cafes and takeaways can be found in the village centre. 

Other Services: Doctors Surgery - Pharmacy in Roys store. Barclays Bank, Newsagents, Wroxham Taxis (01603 782925) Wroxham Angling (Station Road).

TIP: If moorings on the river are full travel down one of the dykes to the boatyards of either Royalls (now owned by Barnes Brinkcraft) or Summercraft as indicated on the map. These are usually quieter being off the main river.
