An introduction to Aylsham

Situated on the banks of the River Bure, Aylsham is an ancient market town and parish in the north of Norfolk. Archaeological digs have shown that the land Aylsham now stands on was occupied by early humans in prehistoric times, and it’s just two miles from Brampton, an important settlement in Roman Britain. It holds an open-air market twice a week, and auctions on Mondays.

Explore Blickling Estate

Blickling Estate is well-known as one of the most impressive and beautiful historic buildings in Norfolk. A massive red-brick mansion, and clusters of ancient yews, stand at the heart of a beautiful garden and historic park nestled in the famous Bure meadows. Though the estate stretches back more than a thousand years, the landscape, with its tree-lined passages and hedges, has changed very little in all that time, contributing to its potent, nostalgic character.
