Thetford East Anglia A Visitors Guide - The Historic Royal Home of King James the First and Boudica: Thetford is a modest town which is nestled between the forest parks that carry its name and it is positioned on the primary A11 road between Norwich and Cambridge. Providing homes for a population of around 21,588 inhabitants, Thetford is an appealing market town having a heritage extending back approximately 2 millennia.

Boadicea or Boudica, was Queen of the Iceni by marriage to King Prasutagus in the middle of the first century AD. The Iceni tribe inhabited the English area we now refer to as East Anglia, their seat of power was established in and around the forests of Thetford. From here they conducted assaults upon the Roman invaders until their actions were subdued by order of the Roman Emperor. Thetford was still an important town following the fall of Boudica and it has been continually populated in some form or other since then. In nineteen seventy nine a hoard of treasure was discovered near the town that had been lost since the 4th century AD. The hoard of Celtic spoons, necklaces, gold rings, pendants and various items is on display in the British Museum (London) and is one of the most significant finds in Britain.

Bridge over the Little Ouse - geograph.org.uk - 1028483Thetford stands at the conjunction of two rivers, the Little Ouse and the River Thet (which it was named after). It was a critical crossing point for those travelling into East Anglia and the Thet ford crossing (ford) was adopted as the name of the town which emerged there in order to provide for the hungry and weary travellers. These days the town is still being used as a handy resting point for travellers using the A11 road offering a large selection of coffee shops and eating places to choose from if you desire to steer clear of the motorway style services and fast food outlets found on the roundabouts and services of the Cambridge to Norwich road.

The principle building is employed by the Town Council and the King's House Gardens are open to everyone and are a favourite position for wedding photography amongst the discerningly landscaped gardens.
