The market town of Thetford was once the capital of the Iceni tribe of East Anglia. Today, Thetford holiday cottages offer a little less drama than the community serving Queen Boudicca faced, but do provide great insight into this pretty historical area.
Once one of the largest and most influential towns in the UK, there are still a number of medieval ruins and relics throughout Thetford. Thetford Castle, which was the tallest medieval earthwork in England, is still evident in its (now well protected) ruins. Just a few miles away is Grimes Graces - a neolithic mine dating back to 2500BC, now run as a tourist attraction. Thetford’s town centre still boasts many Tudor buildings and a variety of statues nodding to local history. There are also several museums, including the popular Dad’s Army Museum – a must for visitors.
