Mini guide to Thetford


Set in Norfolk, the county most famous for its waterways known as the Broads, Thetford is an ancient market town where peaceful gardens and open parkland sit amid buildings that are rich in history and heritage.

Thetford Priory is the ruins of a 12th century monastery and is the area's most popular historic attraction. Built in 1103, the building is Cluniac in origin and features a well preserved 14th century gatehouse. The Priory's decline was the result of the mass dissolution of the church under Henry VIII.

Once used as the site for the famous BBC comedy 'Dad's Army', Thetford offers visitors a number of interesting tours in and around the town. The Dad's Army tour takes in some of the sites and areas used in the filming of the programme, while there are a variety of other differently themed tours available in the town.

Thetford has a good selection of restaurants to choose from including Chinese, Indian, bistros and traditional British establishments. For shopping, there's a market every Tuesday and Saturday and a town centre with retailers offering both day to day and specialised consumer products.

Thetford Forest Park is a short drive away and is a great place to go on a family day out. As Britain's largest lowland pine forest, it is home to a variety of wildlife including red squirrels, deer, pheasants, woodlarks and nightjars. The High Lodge Forest Centre within the park offers miles of waymarked walking trails that are great for walking and cycling alike.

Thetford can be reached by car via the A11 or the A134. Other Norwich towns run limited bus services to Thetford, while the train station, under the care of Anglia Railway, has connections from a limited number of destinations.
