Norfolk Broads City, town and Village low-down - Horning

Horning Ferry

Horning is located just 5 miles down river from Wroxham on the river Bure. It will take you 10 minutes by car but a 1 hour 15 minute cruise by boat. That said, the journey is worth it. Horning is a picture postcard village complete with waterside homes, thatched cottages and enough shops, bars and restaurants to satisfy most needs. Approaching from Wroxham, you first notice the desirable cottages, many with accompanying boats before turning the bend opposite the Swan Inn, a black and white gabled hotel, bar and restaurant. A little further along you pass the New Inn with it's landscaped terraces ideal for viewing the passing traffic. Cruise a little further on and you pass the site of the Ferry Inn, a large family orientated establishment, which effectively marks the end of the Horning "strip". All three establishments provide moorings for customers.

Local Attractions:
Bewilderwood Family Adventure Park - closer to Wroxham but only a 5 min taxi ride from Horning. "Bewilderwood is a wild and imaginative adventure park with magical tree houses and a hint of intriguing characters, bringing a curious difference to the Norfolk Broads." RAF Air Defence Radar Museum - just over a mile from the Swan Inn end of Horning. A museum displaying the history of radar from the second world war to present day. A bloodhound missile is also on display in the grounds of the museum.

Eating and Drinking: The Swan Inn is a bar/restaurant and hotel offering a wide range of food. The New Inn is midway along the Horning "strip". offering restaurant & bar food and regular evening entertainment. The Ferry Inn is located just before the river leaves Horning. It has a large restaurant and bar serving food.

Other Services: Post Office, General Stores, Delicatessen, Gift shops, Newsagents, Off License, The Bure River Restaurant, the Staithe and Willow Restaurant are located on the road which runs adjacent to the river.

TIP: The walk along the road behind the river is delightful with thatched cottages and water meadows leading to the river.
