Norfolk is a beautiful county with miles of stunning coastline. It boasts historic market towns, picture-postcard villages, pretty nature reserves and fantastic wildlife. Norfolk is also known for its wonderful seaside resorts including the popular coastal town of Great Yarmouth with its many attractions. The city of Norwich, with its ancient castle, is steeped in history and offers great shopping facilities, entertainment and fine food.
The county, famed for its unspoilt coastline, attracts artists and writers among its 4 million staying visitors each year. It is easy to see why Norfolk is so appealing. Its tranquil and breath-taking coastline offers miles and miles of wide sandy beaches, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and some of England's best nature reserves (including Titchwell, Snettisham and Cley). The beaches have many hideaways where you can relax and enjoy total peace and quiet.
Along the Norfolk ccoast are many picturesque villages, pretty flint cottages, wonderful pubs, restaurants and specialised local shops. Stunning landscapes and gentle rolling countryside make it a fantastic area for walks or family cycling.
The Norfolk Broads make up one of the UK's most beautiful wetlands. They are a series of joined rivers and broads (lakes), most of which are navigable. The Norfolk Broads is Britain's largest protected wetland and totals 303 square kilometres (most of which are in the county of Norfolk). With just over 200 square kilometres of these waterways navigable, it is one of the best places for river boating. You can hire a boat for a week long holiday or enjoy a fantastic day out on the Broads.
Norwich was the largest city in medieval England. Known as the capital of East Anglia, the city is dominated by an imposing Castle with 12th century keep which overlooks the city. With some remains of ancient city walls, historic buildings and streets which still retain some of their medieval charm, it is a great contrast of old and new. On the castle mound is one of the city's two shopping malls.
The city has 32 medieval churches and two cathedrals. The Norman Cathedral is one of the most complete and unaltered Norman buildings in Europe. In 1096 the Cathedral's foundation stone was laid. It has the largest cloisters in England as well as the second tallest spire in the country and a staggering 1,200 carved stone roof bosses. It has wonderful architecture and houses an outstanding collection of art and objects.
With its cobbled streets, lanes and alleys, Norwich offers a wonderful shopping experience and with a great mix of high street stores, designer brands and independent retailers, it is no wonder this city is listed as one of the UK's top ten shopping places. It is the only place in the UK outside Oxford Street in London to have four national department stores as well as the local independent department store, Jarrold. Norwich is also host to the biggest permanent open air market in the country.
It also has some fine open spaces, including the Riverside Walk and Chapelfield Gardens, where you can take a leisurely stroll.
Diss is a historic market town which lies in the valley of the River of Waveney around a mere (lake) and close to the border of the neighbouring East Anglian county of Suffolk. There has been a market in the centre of the town for more than 500 years and it still has many historic buildings, such as the 14th century parish church.
The town centre architecture includes many fantastic examples of Georgian and Edwardian buildings. A runner-up in the recent Norfolk Town of the Year Awards, Diss also has a thriving shopping centre, a public park and the market which runs on Fridays alongside a local auction of antiques and collectables. It has a population of around 7,000 but has a much bigger rural catchment area of about 40,000 people.
The mere is 5.5 metres deep, with another 16 metres of mud, which makes it one of the deepest natural inland lakes in the country. Diss was one of only two towns chosen to take part in the Italian Cittaslow (slow city) scheme aimed at off-setting the modern reliance on fast food and fast living. It is a town that takes pride in fine food and a good quality of life in a stress-free environment.
Diss Museum is found in the market place in the old Shambles building and tells about the history of the town and the area. The railway station is on the Great Eastern Main Line route from Norwich to London.
An ancient market town steeped in history which in its prime could boast being the Saxon capital of East Anglia. This historic town had its own mint in the 10th century and its coins have been discovered as far away as Scandanivia.
The town was considered to be the royal residence of Boudica, the flame-haired warrior Queen of the Iceni tribe who led a revolt against the Romans. The Iceni tribe was a Celtic tribe living in Norfolk and parts of Cambridgeshire. They had built earth fortifications as far back as 500 BC. Gallows Hill was a huge ceremonial site in 40 AD. This site was also where the famous Thetford Treasure was found. This dates from the 4th century AD and included inscribed spoons, necklaces, rings, pendants and a buckle.
The area shows signs of settlement since the Neolithic times. Grimes Graves is a pre-historic flint mine which is thought to be the earliest major industrial site in Europe. Icknield Way is the oldest road in Britain.
The area has tranquil gardens, riverside, open parkland and beautiful forest. Thetford Forest in Britain's largest lowland forest and is ideal for walks and family days out. With a fantastic mixture of pines, heathland and broadleaves, it is a perfect haven for animal and plant life.
Wymondham is a beautiful historic market town which lies nine miles from Norwich. The Great Fire of 1615 destroyed 300 properties and important buildings including the Market Cross and the Town Hall. Many of the buildings did still survive, however, such as the Green Dragon pub, a 15th century timber building which used to belong to the nearby Abbey.
The Abbey, which was founded in 1107 by William d'Albini, has changed over centuries. The striking massive twin towers have a wonderful setting against the green fields of the Tiffey Valley.
Wymondham thrived from the wool trade. It was also predominant in the making of small wooden objects, such as spoons. In fact some of the town's streets are named in honour of this such as Spooner Row.
The town still retains its market town atmosphere and has some wonderful old buildings, a great range of shops and other facilities. Among the famous who lived in the town or close to it, are Simon Beaufoy, writer of films Slumdog Millionaire and Full Monty.For Removals to and From Wymondham Norfolk, get a quote now from Greens Removals or contact us to discuss your requirements.
