Thetford East Anglia A Travellers Guide - The Historic Royal Home of Boudica and King James I: Thetford is a modest town which is located among the forest parks which carry its name and it is found on the main A11 highway between Cambridge and Norwich. Home to a populace of just under 21,588 inhabitants, it is a pretty market town having a heritage stretching back close to two thousand years.

Boadicea or Boudica, was the celebrated Queen of the Iceni through marriage to King Prasutagus in the first century AD. Their tribe inhabited the area of England we now call East Anglia, their seat of power was in the Thetford Forest. It was from here that they engaged in assaults on the Romans up until the time their capers were repressed on orders of the Roman Emperor. Thetford was still an important town even with the fall of Boudica and it has been in continual occupation in some form since then. In nineteen seventy nine a treasure hoard was uncovered near the town that hails from the the 4th century. This collection of Celtic pendants, rings, inscribed and additional jewellery is on display in the British Museum (London) and is amongst the most valuable finds in Great Britain.

Bridge over the Little Ouse - geograph.org.uk - 1028483Thetford is found at the joining of two rivers, the Little Ouse and the Thet after which it was named. It was an important crossing for travellers wishing to journey into the East of England and the Thet ford crossing was used as the title of the town which appeared here in order to supply the thirsty and tired travellers. In these days Thetford still is a favorable stopping place for motorists on the A11 road offering a wide range of eateries and cafes to select from if you wish to steer clear of the motorway style services and fast food outlets found on the roundabouts and services of the main road.

The magnificent stone structures of the heart of the town include the charming King's House formerly the royal residence of James the First. The substantial gardens and the palace were presented to the residents of Thetford by George Staniforth (a retired Yorkshire businessman) who desired to make sure there was an area which all the towns' people could benefit from. The Town Council use the main building and the King's House Gardens are accessible to all and are a popular spot for wedding photographs within the wonderfully landscaped gardens. One other impressive building is positioned on White Hart St and known as the Ancient House Museum, it is an early oak-framed Tudor merchant's house which now has on display replicas of the previously mentioned Thetford Treasure and other displays concerning the local history of Thetford.

Saturdays and Tuesdays are market days in Thetford and the stalls that are displaying their merchandise on the market square attract thousands of visitors each week who come to purchase produce from farmers and other traders. Car parking is limited on these days, hence make sure that you turn up early on to get a car parking spot. The positioning of the markets have remained the same ever since Thetford was issued its market town charter in the 1800s and when gazing around at the timber framed buildings and Norfolk flint walls you will practically feel the historic past of the town surrounding you. If you do show up on Market Day and want an escape from the shopping, perhaps you should visit the Old Fire Station in Cage Ln for an old fashioned treat. The TV comedy programme, "Dad's Army" set in the fictional Walmington-on-Sea, but a number of the outside scenes were filmed in and around the town of Thetford. The Old Fire Station in Cage Lane today is home to the wonderful Dad's Army Museum with numerous exhibits from the show and it in addition makes available guided tours of Thetford including the opportunity to sit alongside Captain Mainwaring, or at least a statue of his character which was unveiled in 2007.
