Attleborough may offer relaxed life

Attleborough may offer relaxed life

The town of Attleborough may be of interest to those people hoping to move away from the busy city areas of the UK.

Located just 15 minutes from Norwich, Attleborough could appeal to those who are employed in the city but want to be escape once the working day ends - especially as the A11 provides a direct link that takes under 30 minutes.

There is also good public transport links as Attleborough has a railway station on the main line between Cambridge and Norwich.

Around 10,000 call the town home but there is still plenty of property for sale in Attleborough to suit most budgets and tastes.

It is easy to see why the town is popular as it has a great community feel and one of the weekly highlights is the market that takes place in the square on Thursdays. Held since 1285, the market in Queen's Square provides a great chance to stock up on local produce and goods.

Queen's Square is also home to Attleborough Town Hall and Archive Room. The square clock for the hall was donated by Attleborough's Women's Institute. The town hall is also used for meetings and hosts the offices for the Citizens Advice Bureau and Tourist Information. 

For those families relocating with children, then it may be key for parents to research the educational options available in the region. Attleborough has four schools so the school run could be an easy affair.

In terms of leisure, Attleborough has a number of public houses, with the oldest being the Griffin. There is also the Mulberry Tree which is an award winning restaurant and a great place for a family meal.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801721181-ADNFCR
