Attleborough Certificated Locations

Situated between Norwich and Thetford, the market town of Attleborough in Norfolk offers visitors the perfect opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

It can trace its history back to Saxon times and although much of the old town was destroyed by fire in 1559, there are still plenty of historical buildings to satisfy culture vultures.

The town was traditionally a base for turkey-rearing and brush-making, which still take place, although the cider-making industry is sadly long gone.

Visitors can wander around a market each Thursday that dates back to the 13th century and there are plenty of traditional inns to provide a drink or a tasty bite to eat.

In terms of things to do, a rose garden, health spa and St Mary's church are all open to visitors in the town, while the Norfolk Broads, Banham Zoo, Bressingham Steam Museum and Thetford forest lie a little further afield.

Don't miss Carnival Week in June or the Christmas lights display either, with the latter said to rival any in East Anglia.
