Mirabilis, Wroxham - About Wroxham and Hoveton Village

Wroxham and Hoveton are two connected villages, split by the River Bure. Most of the village facilities are actually in Hoveton, but are generally known as Wroxham - the capital of the Norfolk Broads. Boats of all kinds are for hire and there are also an abundance of hotels, pubs, restaurants, shops and a department store. Most of the shopping is dominated around the Roys brand, claiming to be the world's largest village store! Wroxham contains many visitor attractions including a riverside park, the Bure Valley steam railway and Hoveton Hall Gardens and Wroxham Barns craft centre. The village certainly is a busy spot in high season, but is open all year round and is well worth a visit at any time of the year.

Nearby are the Broads of Wroxham, Ranworth, with its wildlife centre, and Salhouse, and the ruins of St Benet's Abbey founded in the 9th Century.

A fabulous new addition to the area is award winning BeWILDerwood adventure park, only a 5 minute drive from Wroxham.  See www.bewilderwood.co.uk for more information.
Fishing, boat hire and boat trips are all locally available.

Slightly further afield is the fantastic city of Norwich, a wonderful place to sightsee, shop, eat or enjoy the arts.  Norwich is only 9 miles from Wroxham and is most easily reached via the excellent Park and Ride service from Sprowston.

There are numerous beaches accessible on the Norfolk coast, the best known of which is Great Yarmouth, only 19 miles away.  Great Yarmouth boasts 15 miles of sandy beach, a pleasure beach, plus many shops and seaside attractions.
