FOR THE

Culture Vultures

Wymondham Abbey (1/2 Mile)

Originally a Benedictine Priory, this magnificent twin towered Abbey dating from 1107 still operates as Wymondham’s Parish Church.  A recent refurbishment has seen a tasteful modern addition to the structure which makes the Abbey more visitor friendly and accessible.  All the people manning the gift shop and entrance area are regular Abbey service attendees and volunteers who carry a wealth of knowledge and passion for this impressive centrepiece for the town.

Wymondham Health and Leisure Centre (600m)

Reopened in April 2016 after a 3 million pound upgrade, the Leisure centre boasts state of the art equipment in its well equipped gym,  a multitude of exercise classes, an adults and learner pool, a Spa and cafe – all of which can be accessed on a pay as you go arrangement,

Mid Norfolk Railway (¾ Mile)

The MidNorfolk Railway (MNR) is a 14-mile (23 km) preserved standard gauge heritage railway, one of the longest in Great Britain. It runs both Diesel and Steam locomotives between Wymondham and the market town of Dereham. The station is down by Wymondham Abbey so combining a visit to both could not be easier

Wymondham Market cross (1 mile)

This cross was built in 1617 at a cost of £25 and yet repairs in 1989 cost £95,000! Set out around the Market Cross is Wymondham main shopping area, containing some lovely mid-seventeeth century properties and narrow medieval streets.  The Tourist Information centre is housed inside the building.

Wymondham Heritage Railway Museum (1 mile)

Built in 1845 and on the Norwich to Ely line, the station once employed over 100 staff! The station still links Norwich, London, Cambridge and the Midlands with train services. This award wining station has been restored and there is a railway themed restaurant, called ‘Station Bistro‘, complete with train carriage seats!

FOR THE TEA, CAKE &

Speciality Lovers

Set on a working farm 200m south of the Abbey, this outdoor / indoor café serves great coffee and homemade cakes in a large lawned area at the front of the main house.  Open Tuesday – Saturday 10am-2pm

FOR THE TRADITIONAL ENGLISH

Pub Lover

The Green Dragon Public House

This stunning Medieval structure dates back to the 14th Century and ranks as ones of the oldest Public Houses in the UK.   A good range of local beers and regular in house events and entertainment are accompanied by a well presented menu.  Our personal favourite is the pork belly !

THE MORE CONTEMPORARY

Pub Restaurant

The Queens Head

Opened at the end of 2017, this has become a firm favourite with friends and guests. if you are lucky enough to get in early enough to grab a seat on the sofa by the fireplace its a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine or two before moving over to a table and a varied menu.

FOR THAT

Special Dinner

No. 24

An abundance of positive Trip Advisor reviews have made this French Restaurant a very popular choice for locals and visitors alike wanting to treat them selves to that special night out.
