Wroxham and Hoveton are two connected villages, split by the River Bure which connects to the Norfolk Broads and offers lots of opportunities for sailing and fishing enthusiasts. The majority of local facilities are situated on the north side of the river in Hoveton and include a post office, banks, shops, a large department store, hotels, pubs and restaurants. There is St John's Community Primary School & Nursery and Broadland High School in Hoveton and also a doctor's surgery. Hoveton and Wroxham Railway Station is on the Bittern Line which runs from Norwich to Sheringham through Hoveton and also with stops at West Runton, Cromer, North Walsham and Worstead.

DIRECTIONS Leave Norwich via the A1151 Wroxham Road, passing Sprowston Manor Golf Hotel and Country Club and continue to the roundabout at the junction with the Broadland Northway. Proceed straight over this roundabout remaining on the A1151 Wroxham Road. Continue for around three quarters of a mile and turn left into Back Lane.
