Thetford A Visitors Guide - The Historical Royal Home of Boudica and James I: Thetford is a medium-sized town that's situated within the forest parks which share its name and it is found on the primary A11 highway between Norwich and Cambridge. Home to a population of just under 25,000 residents, Thetford is a busy market town having a heritage extending back about 2 millennia.

Boudica or Boadicea, was Queen of the Iceni through her marriage to King Prasutagus in the first century AD. The Iceni tribe inhabited the English area we currently refer to as East Anglia, and the seat of their power was located in and around the forests of Thetford. From here they engaged in raids on the Roman invaders until such time as their activities were quashed on orders of the Roman Emperor. Thetford remained an important town following the demise of Boudica and it has been in continuous occupation in some form or other since then. In the late 1970s a hoard of treasure was discovered not far from the town that dated back to the fourth century. That collection of Celtic inscribed, pendants, necklaces, rings and additional items is currently on permanent display in the British Museum in Bloomsbury London and is among the most significant finds in Great Britain.

Bridge over the Little Ouse - geograph.org.uk - 1028483The town is found at the meeting place of two rivers, the Thet (which it was named after) and the River Little Ouse. It was a valuable crossing for those venturing into the East of England and the Thet ford crossing (ford) was implemented as the title of the town that grew up there in order to cater for the thirsty and exhausted travellers. In these days Thetford continues to be a convenient halting place for those driving on the A11 road and provides a variety of eateries and cafes to choose from should you wish to steer clear of the motorway type services and fast food outlets found on the roundabouts and services of the main road.

The interesting stone buildings in the town centre include the picturesque King's House which was once the royal residence of James the First. The building and its substantial gardens were awarded to the citizens of Thetford by George Wild Staniforth who wished to make sure there was a place that all the local people could benefit from. The main building is utilized by the Town Council while the King's House Gardens are open to everybody and also are a favourite position for wedding photographs in the stunningly designed gardens. Another fine structure is set on White Hart Street and known as the Ancient House Museum, it's a historic oak-framed Tudor merchant's house that now holds replicas of the previously mentioned Thetford Treasure Hoard and more displays regarding local history.

Market days are Saturdays and Tuesdays in Thetford and the stalls that are set up in Market Place entice a huge number of visitors weekly who go there to purchase fresh produce from local farmers and other sellers. Vehicle parking isn't easy on these days, consequently make sure you arrive ahead of time to grab a parking place. The area of the markets have been the same since Thetford was issued its market town charter in the 17th century and when looking around at the Norfolk flint walls and oak framed buildings you will really sense the history of the town around you. If you do come along on Market Day and need an escape from the spending, you will want to pop along to Cage Ln and the Old Fire Station for an different experience. The BBC comedy show, "Dad's Army" was based in the fictional town of Walmington-On-Sea, however a number of the exterior locations were recorded in and close to the town of Thetford.
