Hotels in Wymondham
This photogenic market town was once an important monastic centre in the Middle Ages, and is just a few miles from the outskirts of the historic cathedral settlement of Norwich.
In 2015, Wymondham marked the 400th anniversary of the Great Fire of 1615, which destroyed hundreds of properties in the town, including the medieval Market Cross. Fortunately, many buildings were replaced soon afterwards, and the town still retains its traditional medieval layout.
Still regularly open to the public, Wymondham Abbey was established in the early 12th century and was closed in the early 16th century, when King Henry VIII ordered the Dissolution of the Monasteries. The former monastery is overlooked by impressive twin towers, and now serves as the town's parish church.
The Wymondham Heritage Museum
Managed by dozens of volunteers, the Wymondham Heritage Museum is the place to visit if you're interested in discovering the story of this Norfolk town. Learn about the history of brush-making in the area, or find out about the life of Robert Kett, who pioneered a 16th-century rebellion against the conversion of common land to enclosure.
Other local places of interest
Take a day trip to Norwich, the administrative capital of Norfolk, and observe its remarkable 55m long St Peter Mancroft church, which dates back to the 15th century. Near the outskirts of the city is the opulent Felbrigg Hall, which is one of the finest country houses in the region and has existed since the 17th century.
