Find us just north of Wroxham, follow the brown tourist signs. From Norwich, head north over Wroxham Bridge on the A1151, heading towards Hoveton.  Go straight over the double mini roundabout, staying on the A1151 which becomes Stalham Road. After approximately 1 mile, turn left at the crossroads into St Peters Lane and past St Peter’s Church.  Turn right into the gardens where you see the sign.

Explore The Grounds
Hoveton Hall's beautiful gardens as you see them today are made up of several areas, all with their own characteristics.

The Spider Garden
This walled garden has been known as the 'Spider Garden' ever since the ornamental wrought iron Spider's Web gate was made in 1936 by Eric Stevenson of Wroxham. At the centre of the garden is a circular flint spider web edged with box created in 1998 by landscape gardener James Smith.
