About this location
The East Anglia region
Parts of this region of England are characterised by the flatness of the land, partly consisting of fenland and reclaimed marshland, though much of Suffolk and Norfolk is gently undulating.
The East Anglian cities are Norwich, Peterborough, Ely and Cambridge. Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, and Huntingdon are major towns.
Although water plays a significant role in the fenland and broadland landscapes, the area is among the driest in the United Kingdom. Maximum temperature ranges from 5–10 °C (41–50 °F) in the winter to 20–25 °C (68–77 °F) in the summer, although temperatures have been known to reach 35 °C (95 °F) in recent years. Sunshine totals tend to be higher towards the coastal areas.
Major rivers include Suffolk's Stour, running through country beloved of the painter John Constable, and the Nene. The River Cam is a tributary of the Great Ouse and gives its name to Cambridge. The Orwell and its source the Gipping together find the sea at Ipswich. The Norfolk and Suffolk Broads form a network of waterways between Norwich and the coast and are popular for recreational boating.
Agriculture has always been important in this fertile region. The landscape of Cambridgeshire and Norfolk has been heavily influenced by Dutch technology, from the use of red clay roof tiles to the draining of The Fens.
The importance of agriculture and farming can be seen in the fantastic local produce (meats, vegetables etc). Farmer's markets are always worth a visit, and many restaurants specialise in delicious locally produced food.
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.
