Thetford Norfolk A Visitors Guide - The Historical Royal Home of King James and Boudica: Thetford is a small town which is set among the forest parks that carry its name and is located on the major A11 route between Norwich and Cambridge. Home to a populace of just under 22,000 people, Thetford is a much visited market town having a story spanning back about two thousand years.

Boudica or Boadicea, was Queen of the Iceni by her marriage to King Prasutagus in the middle of the first century AD. Their tribe ruled over the English area we now refer to as East Anglia, and the seat of their power was situated in and around the forests of Thetford. From there they conducted assaults against the Romans up to the point their actions were quelled by order of the Roman Emperor. Thetford was still a significant town even with the demise of Boudica and has been in continual occupation to some measure since this period. In nineteen seventy nine a hoard of treasure was uncovered near the town that dates from the 4th century AD. This array of Celtic inscribed, pendants, gold rings and various items is currently on display in the British Museum and is regarded as one of the most significant finds in the United Kingdom.

Bridge over the Little Ouse - geograph.org.uk - 1028483The town of Thetford is found on the uniting of 2 rivers, the Thet after which it was named and the River Little Ouse. It was a crucial crossing for those venturing into England's eastern regions and the Thet ford crossing (ford) was used as the name of the town that developed there in order to provide for the worn out and thirsty travellers. In modern times the town is still a useful stopping place for drivers on the A11 and offers lots of eateries and coffee shops from which to choose if you desire to steer clear of the motorway style services and fast food outlets found on the roundabouts and services of the main road.

The outstanding stone buildings in the heart of the town include the memorable King's House which in the early 17th century was the royal palace of King James I. The substantial gardens and the house were awarded to the citizens of the town by George Staniforth (a retired businessman) who desired to ensure there was a spot which all people of the town could enjoy. The Town Council use the main building while the King's House Gardens are open to all and tend to be a favourite position for wedding photographs in the stunningly landscaped gardens.
