Wroxham is known as the capital of the Norfolk Broads, and it is where boating holidays started in the late 1800s. The village centre is beside the river Bure and Wroxham Bridge, and is a bustling community of holiday makers and local people. There is a variety of riverside bars, café, restaurants and fish and chip shops but the most famous is Roys of Wroxham, probably the largest village store in the world. The food hall is super, stocking all manner or local fresh produce. It is open seven days a week, and even has a McDonalds in store as well as a cafeteria of its own.


Aylsham is a historic market town and civil parish on the River Bure, only 9.3 miles north of Norwich. The town is very close to the large estate at Blickling, and it is essential to ‘do both’ on the same day. Biddy’s is a lovely vintage-inspired tea room in the marketplace, serving over 50 different blends of tea! There is also an artisan bakers, chocolatier’s, antique and many gift shops. The Black Boys is a great pub and restaurant here too.
