Acle is a flourishing market town with some very attractive 17th and 18th century buildings and a church which is more than 900 years old. It is situated 10 minutes east of Norwich and 8 miles west of Great Yarmouth with good rail connections to both places.
A small market is held every Thursday, vastly different from the traditional livestock market of years gone by.
In 2000 Acle won the ‘Eastern Daily Press’ ‘Village of the Year’ competition and is considered to be the gateway to the Broads, the starting point of many boating holidays.
Acle has many amenities including a library, two schools and recreational facilities. Two miles from the centre is Acle Bridge where there are two boatyards which offerboat hire and an excellent view of the River Bure.The annual Acle Sailing Regatta takes place west of the bridge, which attracts sailing boats from all across the Broads.
