North-East of Norwich, towards the delightful Norfolk Broads, lies Broadgate Park on the fringe of Sprowston. With a close relationship between urban and rural living, Broadgate Park is set to become a desirable place in which to live.
With Norwich city centre just 3 miles* away and natural aspects such as open areas, plantations, woods and green fields locally there is a sense of balance to Broadgate Park. Historically, the Anglo-Saxon name of Sprowston means ‘the land belonging to Sprow’, but over time, with the spread of the city, great change has taken place. Now Sprowston is an excellent town for family living as education, shops or leisure activities, and other amenities, together with access to the Norwich Ring Road, makes it a favourite for commuters and travellers alike. Sprowston has always been a good community for education, and local shops offer a wide range of goods for everyday needs. There is a large Tesco and a retail park, and further afield in Norwich there is everything you could imagine. There are family-friendly public houses, such as the famous Blue Boar, and a number of restaurants and recreational facilities including county wildlife sites, ancient woodland, children’s parks and play areas, sports pitches, a recreation ground, bowls club and golf courses, such as the Sprowston Manor Golf Club in the grounds of the remarkable Sprowston Hall. With immediate access to the city or countryside, river or coast there is always something to do and somewhere to go.
