South Norfolk has a special charm, with picturesque villages and market towns. Wymondham is the largest town in South Norfolk and has a very popular market every Friday. On the first Friday of every month the central hall plays host to an antiques and collectors fair. The town has an abbey which is considered to be one of the finest in England.
In Caistor St Edmond you will discover the remains of the Roman town of Venta Icenorum. Open to visitors, it is one of the few sites in the country that has not been disturbed by development.
The market town of Diss is on the Norfolk/Suffolk border and close to Diss is Bressingham Gardens and Steam Museum. This is home to the national Dads Army Collection, and is set in an area of six acres, with delightful gardens.
The village of Hingham is an ancient settlement, and as early as 925 AD it is recorded as being the property of King Arthelstan. The 14th century parish church of St Andrew towers above the market place and can be seen for miles.
Thorpe Abbotts near Diss is where the 100th Bomb Group Memorial Museum can be found. It is a tribute to the 8th Air Force (USAAF) which was based in Norfolk during the Second World War.
