Arriving & Car Park
FREE parking is available in the Roys of Wroxham overflow parking just over 1 mile away, situated just behind Wroxham Station, NR12 8UR.
Alternate parking for just £1 is at Hoveton Village Hall NR12 8DU just 3/4 mile away. Please park considerately. Follow the Tour de Broads signs to the start.
On site parking is just £2 and must be booked in advance. We have only 600 spaces available onsite, so this is ideal for families or those with limited mobility. The Car park is open from 7:30am. Staggered start times will alleviate car park queues, please try not to arrive too far in advance of your allocated time.
We have reinvented the Sportive Grand Depart. By purchasing a pack you have agreed to the terms and conditions, so all you need to do is roll up and ride! Give yourself enough time to meet up with friends and have a cuppa before you assemble in the collecting area for your start.
Upon completing your ride, pass through the finishing line and head to the awards tent where riders will be awarded an exclusive Tour de Broads commemorative medal. Please stay a while, savour the moment and join us in welcoming home your fellow riders.
Check your bikes over with our mechanic if you are in need and stock up on spares at our mobile shop.
We have Julian Claxton Photography exclusively taking pictures for the tour, at the venue and along the route. Links to the galleries will be on our website in the week following the Tour. Make sure your rider number is facing forward to help you search for your photo’s online.
Fundraisers from our charities will be around the start and finish line to collect any donations you may have. This year our national charity is once again Macmillan. We have also partnered with three local charities and hope you consider donating or fundraising for them. They are EAAA, NNAB and Nelson’s Journey.
