Breckland and Thetford Forest

About The Brecks and Thetford Forest

Breckland, most commonly known as ‘The Brecks’, is a wild and fascinating region dominating South Norfolk and North Suffolk.

There are countless tree-lined footpaths and cycle trails weaving their way through this timeless landscape. The forest, heathland, and mysterious meres of the Brecks teem with wildlife – perfect for a true ‘back to nature’ experience.

The historic Norfolk market town of Thetford brims with history and heritage (and a Dad’s Army museum!). You’ll also find delightful gardens, parks, riverside walks and much more in this thriving county town.

Swaffham, to the north of the Brecks, is a lively town with many fine Georgian buildings lining its streets. The marketplace is transformed every Saturday with bustling stalls selling all kinds of lovely local produce.
