About the neighbourhood
The ancient Saxon town of Downham Market is a delightful place to visit and is one of Norfolk's oldest market towns. Considered by many to be the gateway to the Fens, and with a network of waterways close by plus lots to see and do in the town and surrounding area, Downham Market is a great place for a weekend break in Norfolk.

Downham Market has a wealth of interesting historic buildings. In the main square see the town's unique black and white clock tower. Gothic in design and made from wrought iron, it is proudly considered one of Downham Market's most distinctive features.

The Town Hall is another beautiful building, which was built to celebrate Queen Victoria's jubilee in 1887 and remember to look out for the St Edmunds Parish Church - the town's oldest build...
