Town Sign

North Walsham is a market town and civil parish in the county of Norfolk and sits midway between the Norfolk Broads and the North Norfolk Coast.

It is seven and half miles north of Wroxham and south of Cromer and the Bittern Line railway serves it allowing travel between Norwich and Sheringham. This makes North Walsham a fantastic place to look for accommodation that will allow you to access the beautiful Norfolk Broads and stunning North Norfolk Coast without difficulty.

The market place houses a 16th century cross with clock and is the focal point of the town, built to collect rent from the market traders. Today, a market runs on Thursdays and a Farmers Market on the last Sunday of every month, excluding December.

It has lots of historical buildings including Paston College where Horatio Nelson, spent his school days between 1768 and 1771.

Nearby Bacton Woods has 280 acres of ancient woodland, dating back to Saxon times. The marked trails through the beautiful woodland offers great woodland walks and terrain for mountain biking.

If you looking for something to entertain the children, nearby Ten Pin bowling, Stompers Play Centre and Victory Swim Centre are great options and of course, during the winter there is a great rugby club, North Walsham Vikings, competitively placed in the leagues providing great entertainment and welcoming cheer at the weekend.

Its historic buildings and proximity to the Broads National Park and coast, makes North Walsham well worth visiting.
