Wayford Bridge

Wayford Bridge takes its name from the crossing over the River Ant which flows through the the village. It consists of a few dwellings and holiday accommodation in the form of apartments and houseboats. Norwich is a 30 minute drive away.

Things to see and do:
The upper reaches of the River Ant are very scenic. Take advantage of the scenery on your doorstep by hiring a canoe or self-drive dayboat from Banks Boats close to the bridge. You can expect to see the kingfisher, heron, grebe and all manner of wildfowl, as well as native insects such as dragonflies and butterflies, in these secluded waters. The Broads Museum is two miles away in Stalham. Here life across the Broads over the last century is displayed with around 6,000 items on display, from farming to household to marine exhibits. Wroxham, often described as the capital of the Broads, is a 15 minute easy drive away. Wroxham is a holiday centre with lots to entertain the family. The Bure Valley Narrow Gauge Railway runs from here to Aylsham, a distance of nine miles, and is mostly steam hauled. Broads Tours operate passenger launches from which to see the area, usually including Wroxham and Salhouse Broads, and the delightful waterside village of Horning. Wroxham has its own train station with regular fast connections into Norwich, either to visit the fine city or to take the train to areas of the south including Brundall, Reedham and Oulton Broad.
