The pretty riverside village of Horning sits on the northern bank of the River Bure and is home to a good selection of pubs, restaurants and shops. Follow the footpath two miles out of Horning (12/12A buses except Sundays) to BeWILDerwood, a tree house adventure park suitable for all ages. Based on the Boggles and Twiggles children’s books it offers tree houses, zip-wires, a ‘sky maze’ and boat trips. Just watch out for the Crocklebogs!

Hire bikes from Broadland Cycle Hire, also located at BeWILDerwood, and explore the winding lanes around Horning or follow the Three Rivers Way cycle path to Hoveton & Wroxham. They provide bikes for all ages and even supply helmets, maps and locks. Show your Privilege Card for 10% off bike hire.

Stroll out of town and visit the picturesque church of St Benedict or climb aboard the Southern Comfort paddle boat for a guided trip to Ranworth Broad.

Horning Sailing Club offers rowing boats for hire and also runs the annual Three Rivers Race at the beginning of June, one of the most notable and challenging sailing events on the Broads.
