Thetford

Thetford

Tracing its lineage to the titian-haired warriors of the Iceni Tribe who ruled much of East Anglia during the Iron Age, Thetford was once one of the most influential cities in medieval England. Alive with history, a visit to Thetford offers insight into the history of surrounding Breckland and provides the perfect base from which to explore the region’s outstanding natural diversity. On the hunt for a heritage escape? Descend into the dark and dank depths of Grimes Graves; an excavated Neolithic Flint Mine, and visit historic Lynford; the site of the only recorded mammoth butchery site in Britain. Active travellers should explore the maze of lowland pines that blanket Thetford Forest. A total of 26 walking and cycling trails weave their way through the undergrowth and provide walkers, riders, and birdwatchers with countless opportunities for adventure.
