Local Area

Find your place to enjoy life…
At just over a mile from Attleborough town centre and a mile and a half from the train station, Saxon Heath residents can benefit from the historic town’s plentiful amenities, whilst also enjoying the surrounding beauty of Norfolk’s rural landscape.

Attleborough has a wealth of independent shops, supermarkets and plenty of community facilities, including a sports hall and tennis courts, plus a selection of cafés, pubs and lively eateries lining the attractive high street. Every Thursday, there’s the wonderful Makers Market, just outside the Town Hall – a tradition that’s been established for hundreds of years. And with an abundance of pubs and restaurants in the surrounding villages offering a wide range of cuisines, there’s always local places to enjoy a relaxed evening meal with the family, or to simply unwind with a coffee.

… your places to explore
There’s plenty to do to keep all ages entertained, whatever the season. Thetford Forest is close by, with its busy programme of events throughout the year and wealth of outdoor activities, including invigorating walks and bike trails, plus a fantastic wooden adventure playground amongst the trees. Alternatively, test your skills on the high rope treetop course, or even take the off-roading challenge on our all-terrain Segways at the Forestry Commission’s High Lodge centre. A Banham Zoo annual pass is a must, it’s just a short drive away, where there’s also indoor and outdoor play areas for younger children. You’ll also find a fantastic fairground and traditional train and transport attractions at Bressingham Steam and Gardens.

A little further afield, you can experience the great outdoors of the world-famous Norfolk Broads National Park, a meandering network of rivers and lakes stretching for over 125 miles, giving you access by boat, canoe or kayak to numerous towns and picturesque villages. Norfolk’s coastline is also well-known for its spectacular beaches, such as Cromer in the north, famed for its crabbing and fine Victorian Pier, to Lowestoft and Southwold to the east - there’s no shortage of places to discover with family and friends.

Norwich, with its wealth of history and culture, is around 20 miles away. Shoppers on the lookout for something different should head to Norwich Lanes, a charming locale of medieval alleyways and historical buildings, where independent retailers offer exclusive fashion and lifestyle choices. Diners can choose from a tantalising wealth of fine dining establishments serving up a variety of cuisines, as well as enjoying all manner of lively bars and clubs.
Norwich Market, one of the largest open-air markets in the country, is open from Monday to Saturday with plenty of stalls. Whatever you fancy, you’re likely to find it here, including the best in local produce, including freshly baked bread and homemade jams. Or the weekly Goat Lane Fair, established back in 1972, is a treasure trove if you’re on the hunt for antiques and collectibles.

For a little more intensive retail therapy, Norwich is also home to some impressive shopping malls, including Chantry Place, housing more than 90 shops, cafés and restaurants over three levels, and filled with leading fashion brands, accessories and more. In addition, the five-storey Castle Quarter shopping and leisure centre is packed with popular high street names, restaurants, a cinema and many leisure activities from gyms and yoga to bowling to interactive gaming. In the city centre, you’ll discover one of the jewels in Norwich’s crown, the Royal Arcade; opened in 1899, it’s definitely worth visiting, as much for its magnificent, tiled interiors and stained glass as for the boutiques themselves.

For a more sedate, cultural experience, there’s the Theatre Royal, various galleries and museums, or either of Norwich’s major landmarks – the Castle and Cathedral. Or sports fans might prefer a trip to watch Norwich City FC play at Carrow Road, or even enjoy a day at Newmarket races. There’re endless opportunities for a whole spectrum of leisure pursuits.
… and places to learn

For younger families, the area offers Attleborough and Great Ellingham Primary Schools, plus an excellent choice of state and independent schools, including Old Buckenham High School, Wymondham College, the largest co-educational state boarding and day school in the UK, Attleborough Academy, a co-educational secondary school and sixth form with academy status, and Thetford Grammar School.
