A perfect base for a boating holiday or exploring the Broads, the town is surrounded by waterways and large expanses of water for sailing. The area is a haven for migrating birds and rare breeds. From the town there is plenty of choice for boat hire; from canoes and yachts to organised cruises offering guided tours. The Bure Valley Steam Railway has an 18 mile round journey across beautiful open countryside, also available are day trips to Aylsham.

Bewilderwood is a fantastic woodland adventure site, packed with treehouses, bridges, mazes and zip wires. There are nature trails and storytelling from magical creatures for the younger members of the family. Visitors can stroll the riverside walks in the Wroxham park, or have a fun ride along the River Bure on one of the miniature trains at the Barton House Railway.

The Wroxham Barns are a collection of boutique shops and leisure facilities, there is also a fun fair, mini golf and children’s farm. There are studios offering pottery and art courses. The town has the UKs largest indoor model exhibition; Miniature Worlds has collections of vintage toys, arcade machines, model railways and Lego cities.

Hoveton Hall Estate has over 600 acres of formal gardens and woodland, on site is a historic ice well, the old kitchen garden and glass house. The RAF Air Defence Museum has an atmospheric operations room, and a museum with displays of reconnaissance and radar equipment.


Located on the east coast of England, facing Europe across the North Sea, Norfolk is one of the UK's most rural counties, with over forty percent of its population living in just four towns – Norwich, Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn and Thetford. Adjacent to The Wash, in whose mud the medieval King John famously lost the Crown Jewels in 1216, Norfolk's geography is that of low plains or “fens”, which makes it along with neighbouring Suffolk feel more like northern countries of European mainland (Belgium and Holland) than the rest of England which is predominantly hilly.

In a similar way to that of the “low countries”, erosion and land reclamation have changed the coastline over the centuries, so that several towns (King's Lynn, for instance) which were once on the coast are now to be found several miles inland! The whole set-up makes for some very interesting topography as well as history and Norfolk is, for this reason, an interesting county to visit, almost as if it was a different country altogether!

East of England

This region includes the ceremonial counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. With a rich heritage there is much to see and do to suit all ages. The royal residency of Sandringham Estate is a must see and other historical points of interest include Castle Rising, Sutton Hoo and Somerleyton Hall. The medieval cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich are not to be missed and there are lots of pretty market towns and idyllic seaside resorts to choose from for a day trip. Alternatively for a slower paced holiday you may wish to visit The Broads or Thetford Forest, these areas are particularly popular for boating and spotting birdlife.
