North Walsham Carnival
North Walsham is a market town and civil parish in the county of Norfolk, it sits midway between the Norfolk Broads and the North Norfolk Coast.
Situated south of Cromer and seven and half miles north of Wroxham, it is served by the Bittern Line which allows train travel between Norwich and Sheringham. This makes North Walsham a fantastic place to look for accommodation that allows access to the beautiful Norfolk Broads and the stunning North Norfolk Coast without any difficulty.
The Market Place houses a 16th century Market Cross complete with clock. Originally built to collect rent from the market traders, it is a focal point of the town and even today, a market runs every Thursday, and a Farmers Market on the last Sunday of every month, excluding December.
North Walsham has many historical buildings including Paston College, where Horatio Nelson spent his school days between 1768 and 1771.
Its historic buildings and proximity to the Broads National Park and coast, make North Walsham well worth visiting. Nearby Bacton Woods dates back to Saxon times and has 280 acres of ancient woodland, offering marked trails with beautiful woodland walks and terrain for mountain biking. Seaside towns such as Bacton, Happisburgh and Mundesley are just a short drive away.
North Walsham Heritage Museum & Information Centre are located, in the Saddlers Rooms on Vicarage Street. Open from 10am – 2pm, Monday- Friday. You can contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org
