The market town of Acle is situated halfway between Norwich and Great Yarmouth on the east coast of England. This attractive town can trace its origins back to Roman times, and also has an entry in the Domesday Book.
The River Bure has always played an important role here, and nowadays, it acts as a major artery for those people boating along the Norfolk Broads. The town of Acle is also positioned on the main road running from Norwich to Great Yarmouth, and if you have time, is definitely worth visiting.
Whether you are boating through, or driving through, it is worth spending a little time in Acle. Retaining its market traditions, there are markets held every Thursday morning and every second Saturday. The Saturday markets are normally farmers markets, and so you will have the opportunity to buy locally grown Norfolk Farm produce and craft goods made in East Anglia directly from the source.
Acle boasts quite a unique church called St Edmund Church. It is one of the round tower churches, and not many of them are this accessible in Norfolk. This unique feature dates back to somewhere between 800 and 900 AD, and others aspects of this Norfolk Church were added during the following centuries.
After visiting the church and having a stroll around the village, you might like to have lunch at the Bridge Pub situated right on the Norfolk Broads. On a warm summers day, nothing quite beats having a pint in the pub garden overlooking the River Bure whilst you wait for a good meal to arrive!
