Wroxham is the capital of the Norfolk Broads and is the perfect place to start a boating holiday in this fantastic area of waterways. There are a number of boat hire companies based here and you can hire a small boat for a day out or a cruiser for a longer holiday.
Wroxham has a wide variety of shops so you can stock up on supplies and there are also several cafes and restaurants. Wroxham boating breaks are perfect for the first timer and with a short period of training you can be on your way along the River Bure to start your adventure on the Broads. There are five boatyards in and near to Wroxham where you can start your boating adventure and these include:-
Le Boat Horning
Broadland Small Craft
The boats are very spacious, light and airy and most have a sliding canopy so you can get the full benefit of the sun and the fresh air. If it is not your turn to steer you can sit on the sun deck and enjoy the scenery and the varied wildlife that is all around you.
There is a fully equipped galley on board but it is nice to stop off at a waterside pub and have a hearty meal and a refreshing pint. The atmosphere is friendly and you can swop stories with fellow boaters and get some helpful advice and information on places to explore. Wroxham Boating Breaks are all about having a good time and enjoying yourself.
As you drift slowly and peacefully along you may decide to stop off and do a bit of sightseeing. Norwich is a good place to visit with its majestic cathedral, excellent shopping facilities, theatres and bars and restaurants. There is everything on offer you would expect from any vibrant city.
On the quieter side the village of Woodbastwick is an interesting stop off point with its medieval church finished with a thatched roof and this charming place has twice won the Best Kept Village Award. If the weather should take a turn for the worst you can head for Caister Castle Motor Museum which houses a fine collection of vintage and classic motor vehicles. Wroxham boating breaks have something to meet everyone’s needs and tastes. This is a holiday the whole family will enjoy and they will all have lots of fun.
