Thetford East Anglia A Travelers Guide - The Historic Royal Residence of King James and Boudica: Thetford is a modest town that's established amongst the forest parks which carry its name and it is found on the key A11 route between Norwich and Cambridge. Providing homes for a populace of just under 21,588 people, it is a dynamic market town with a heritage going back around 2,000 years.

Boadicea or Boudica, was Queen of the Iceni by her marriage to King Prasutagus in the mid 1st century AD. Their tribe held sway the English area we these days call East Anglia, and the seat of their power was in and around the forests of Thetford. It was from that area that they carried out sorties upon the Romans till the time their antics were terminated on orders of the Roman Emperor. Thetford was still a significant town even after the fall of Boudica and has been in continuous occupation to some measure since then. In 1979 a treasure hoard was discovered not far from the town which had been buried since the Fourth Century AD. The hoard of Celtic pendants, spoons, rings and additional jewellery is presently on permanent display in the British Museum and is deemed among the most important finds in Britain.

Bridge over the Little Ouse - geograph.org.uk - 1028483The town can be found at the union of two rivers, the Thet after which it was named and the Little Ouse. It was a vital crossing for travellers needing to journey into East Anglia and the Thet ford crossing (ford) was used as the title of the town which grew up here to help cater for the hungry and worn out travellers. In these days the town still is chosen as a suitable resting point for travellers on the A11 offering various restaurants and cafes from which to choose so that you can stay away from the fast food outlets and motorway type services found on the services and roundabouts of the main road that links Cambridge and Norwich.

The beautiful stone buildings in the town centre include the charming King's House which was once the royal palace of King James.

If ever you pay a visit on Market Day and need a rest from the retail therapy, why don't you pop over to the Old Fire Station in Cage Lane for an different experience.
