Wymondham has been described by The Guardian as a ‘fabulous place… with a bohemian, eccentric edge’… and this picturesque market town is certainly that and more. Wymondham is a historic town, believed to date back as early as the 2nd century. Many of the medieval buildings were destroyed in the Great Fire of 1615 but have since been lovingly restored and rebuilt. From the town centre, you can see the ruins of the famous Wymondham Abbey, founded in 1107, and the green fields of the nearby Tiffey Valley.
Today, Wymondham has managed to retain its old-world rural charm, with the centre of town built around the 17th century Market Cross. Enjoy fine shopping, traditional English pubs and gorgeous Tudor architecture. Other local attractions include the Wymondham Heritage Museum, Becket’s Chapel and Wymondham Arts Centre. The town also has several popular markets – there is a weekly market on Fridays as well as the renowned Wymondham Farmers Market on the third Saturday of every month.
