Beccles Situated on the peaceful River Waveney, the fine market town of Beccles was once a flourishing Saxon seaport. It has many buildings worth visiting including the fine 18th century octagonal Town Hall and the beautiful Grade 1 listed building now housing the Beccles & District Museum. ____________________________________________________

Diss located at a central point in East Anglia, has retained its historic character with over 200 buildings in the town listed as being of special architectural or historical importance, and the townscape is considered to be amongst the finest in East Anglia. _____________________________________________________

Norwich The honey-coloured Cathedral and Castle dominate the city. They lie within easy reach of each other and close to many of the other historic buildings admired by visitors, making this an interesting place to explore on foot. The city was said at one time to have a church for every week of the year and a pub for every day. ____________________________________________________

Southwold Surrounded by miles of peaceful countryside, and award winning beaches, the heritage resort of Southwold is much appreciated for its village atmosphere. Dating back to the famous 'Battle of Sole Bay', Southwold used to be renowned for its herring fishery. Today, the picturesque harbour is alot calmer, however visitors can still catch a glimpse of Southwold's maritime heritage in the charming Sailors' Reading Room. Exhibits include ship models, figureheads and sepia prints of ancient seafarers, and in winter you can usually find some local retired fishermen playing cards by a well stoked fire. ____________________________________________________

Wymondham contains a variety of historic buildings including The Abbey, founded in 1107, and Beckets Chapel, which dates back to 1174. The river Tiffey links a series of attractive open spaces, the Lizard, Toll's Meadow nature reserve and Becketswell - into a 'green corridor' through the town. A short stroll past the Abbey leads to the Tiffey Valley Walk where riverside footpaths give fine views of typical Norfolk landscapes.
