Divided by the River Bure in the heart
of Broadland are the towns of Wroxham and
Hoveton. The village on the left bank of the river
is Hoveton and on the right is Wroxham, but over time
they have both become merged and generally go under the
heading of Wroxham. A busy place at any time of
the year as this is a starting place for river trips of
both short and long duration where most boating holidays
begin and have done since the late 1800s. Here you can
catch any number of boat tours of the broads that last
from thirty minutes all the way up to one hour.
Regattas and boating events take place during the summer months. Other attractions include Hoveton Hall Gardens - ten acres of formal and informal gardens to enjoy throughout the seasons. The gardens are interlaced with streams that lead to a lake and offer a number of enjoyable walks. Facilities include traditional tea-rooms and plant sales.
