Reputed to have been a one-time favourite of Lord Nelson, Swaffham was also home to Howard Carter, the Egyptologist who discovered the treasures of Tutankhamun.
The marketplace is transformed on Saturdays with a range of local food produce to tempt your taste buds. Every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month there is a bustling Farmer’s market and in September, Swaffham hosts the annual Brecks Food & Drink Festival.
Swaffham is also home to the Echo-tech Centre where visitors can climb an E66 Wind Turbine to enjoy superb countryside views. Those just wishing to stay closer to the ground can enjoy the organic garden, shop and café.
