The Norfolk Broads Village of Horning

Horning is an old and attractive waterside village on the northern bank of the River Bure in the Norfolk Broads National Park. This delightful village is situated between Wroxham and Ludham with the River Thurne located to the north and the area has a history dating back to the 11th century.

Horning is noted in the Domesday Book and archaeologists have discovered ancient earthworks running alongside the River Bure which may possibly be from the early Saxon period. Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts have also been found at Horning, which once had a ferry for crossing the river operational for over one thousand years.

Today, the picturesque village of Horning, once described as the prettiest village on the Broads, is a hugely popular holiday and boating destination, and a great base for exploring this part of the Norfolk Broads. Visitors and holidaymakers can enjoy the many charming shops, pubs, restaurants and tea-rooms as well as a good choice of boat trips and boat hire. Horning is also popular for its many local attractions and waterside properties.

The village of Horning is 13 miles from Caister Holiday Park.
