Charming visitors with its fine Georgian architecture, bustling weekend markets, 1000-year-old Norman fortresses, and ultra-modern renewable energy projects, the market town of Swaffham offers no ordinary Norfolk escape. Soak in the ambience of times long past as you explore the elaborate earthwork defences and inner stone buildings of Castle Acre and its neighbouring medieval monastery. Call into the Ostrich Inn; a 16th century coaching inn with traditional décor, slopping foundations, leaning walls, and resident ghosts, for a sterling pub lunch of local and handcrafted produce. Then climb the 300 steps that lead to the observation deck of an wind turbine to enjoy the almost aerial views across green rolling hills towards Ely Cathedral.
