|Route outline (key)|
The A1151 is the main tourist route to Wroxham and the northern section of the Norfolk Broads.
It starts on the A147 Norwich Inner Ring Road, and immediately does a dogleg to route itself onto Magdalen Street and its original route, before heading right towards Sprowston Manor, crossing the A1042 Outer Ring Road en route.
After this there's a fairly uneventful run up to Wroxham, where it crosses the infamous bridge over the River Bure, one of the main navigable rivers in the Broads. The bridge is only just wide enough for the cars on top and the boats underneath.
Immediately after this we reach Hoveton, where there's a junction with the A1062 to the east and B1354 to the west. There's then a run through farmland, with the odd side road leading east to the Broads again. The road ends at a rather inconspicuous TOTSO; straight on and left is the A149.
The original southern end of the road, which started on the A140 Magdalen Street in Norwich, was moved slightly when the ring road was built.
