A popular market town, North Walsham situated a few miles from the seaside town of Cromer and The Norfolk Broads capital, Wroxham.

North Walsham

The town offers many amenities including a range of supermarkets, leisure facilities, shops, primary and secondary schools, sixth form college, doctors surgeries and a cottage hospital.

There are regular bus and train services to the cathedral city of Norwich, where there are a wider range of facilities including an international airport and mainline.

Situated a short commute away from Norwich with its many amenities, Wroxham is renowned for its boating culture.

Standing on the river Bure, the village is divided by the river and shares its many attractions with the neighbouring Hoveton St John. Whether on the water or congregating in the busy pubs and restaurants on offer, there is something that will capture the heart of everyone. If you choose to hire a boat, you can travel at a leisurely pace along the broads and moor up at one of the local pubs. The Ferry Inn at Horning serves food all day and offers a fantastic outdoor space and plenty of mooring.

If you would rather stay on dry land, you can wander through the riverside park and feed the ducks, enjoy afternoon tea at one of the quaint tea rooms or simply sit and watch the boats go by in a sunshine filled pub garden.

The Bure Valley railway, which started in 1900, begins its journey in the centre of Wroxham. Both a steam and diesel train run the 18 mile round trip, taking you on a tour of pretty Norfolk villages and ending in Aylsham.
