Many towns claim to be 'historic market towns', but there has been a market in the centre of Diss, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border for well over 500 years. The town, which lies in the beautiful Waveney Valley, was established around one of the deepest natural inland lakes in the country.
The town centre comprises some excellent examples of Georgian and Edwardian buildings, as well as a public park, the Mere and a number of thriving shopping streets and the market place. The Market operates every Friday and coincides with a local antiques and collectables auction which is held at Gazes Saleroom. Speciality markets, flea markets and farmers markets are also held regularly.
Other attractions in the area include the town's award winning museum located to the north of the Market Place, the wonderful Steam Museum and Gardens at Bressingham and the zoo at Banham.
