Wroxham Norfolk Broads Boat Holidays
When it comes to boat and riverside holidays there are few places in the United Kingdom as beautiful or as worthwhile as Wroxham. It is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the relaxed lifestyle and pace of river life – the perfect tonic for the fast paced lives that many of us are forced to lead everyday.
It is a holiday area with a proud history. Way back in 1878 John Loyes started hiring out boats to tourists, and since then it has turned into a thriving business for many people involved – many people who come back to the area again and again. An interesting fact about the neighbouring village of Hoveton is that many of the shops and large stores are all owned by the Roy family. So as you travel around the area you will see many shops with the name Roy, as the local family own them all.

Choose from River cruisers, boat tours, day craft – whatever your need there is something for you. The many water-craft that are available may seem daunting, but you just need to select the best type for your needs. If you only need a day hire then a smaller river cruiser type boat will be suitable, or maybe even a flat deck fishing boat if you wish to indulge in some fishing.
