Location The historic medieval market town of Aylsham is located 9 miles north of Norwich, beside the River Bure. Aylsham has all the characteristics you would expect to find in any Norfolk market town, with its charming narrow streets and Lokes to explore. The unspoilt National Trust market place has been holding a regular farmers market since the 1500s. There are varied examples of fine architecture dating back many centuries with a stunning church steeped in regional Norfolk history and boasts one of the largest concentrations of listed buildings in Norfolk. Aylsham is close to Blickling Hall, once home to the Boleyn family and plays host to a thriving tourist industry. On the Bure Valley Railway there is a narrow gauge steam train which will take you to Wroxham or Coltishall.
There are several free car parks and a good variety of independent local shops including 3 supermarkets, Marks & Spencer food shop and fuel station, 2 butchers, 2 doctors' surgeries, opticians, library, town hall and schooling for all ages up to 16.
