Diss and the Surrounding Area
The town of Diss is well situated on the Norfolk/Suffolk border. Diss and the surrounding area offers a great deal to all visitors, and there really is something for everybody. Diss itself offers up a wide range of both independent and chain shops, as well as a bustling weekly market on Fridays, and a farmer's market on the 2nd Saturday of the month.
Aside from shopping opportunities, Diss Museum illustrates the history of Diss, whilst the Corn Hall arts venue has a varied programme of music and theatre throughout the week. There are also a number of good pubs, cafes and restaurants in the town.
The six acre Mere is a unique and historical feature of Diss and attracts a great deal of wildlife to the centre of the town, and we are also on the Angles Way and Boudicca Way, which makes us convenient for those on walking or cycling holidays. (Packed lunches can be arranged.)
20 miles North of Diss is Norwich, which is easily accessible by train, bus and car. Norwich is a fascinating historical city and features many attractions, including a medieval castle, cathedral and museums, which sit comfortably alongside modern-day shops and restaurants.
Diss is on the London to Norwich train line, and Norwich offers a number of connections to places such as Cambridge, Peterborough and further afield.
We are situated right in the middle of East Anglia, so why not:
Head North for Norwich, the Broads and North Norfolk, for boat trips or the characterful coastal towns of Cromer and Wells-Next-the-Sea.
Head East for picturesque Southwold and Aldeburgh or the seaside fun of Great Yarmouth.
Head West for the market towns of Bury St Edmunds and Ely, and the city of Cambridge.
Or head South for the quayside views at Ipswich or Woodbridge.
