W57-Harleston-Thoroughfarerenamed

There are many lovely places to visit in the Waveney Valley and our market towns have many ancient buildings and lively markets which are still at the heart of the community; each of the Waveney Valley’s market towns has its own unique character and story to tell.

Famous for its mere and its lush green parkland, Diss makes the perfect gateway to the Waveney Valley. You can browse the independent shops in the vibrant, bustling town of Harleston or take a stroll down the river at Loddon, lying within the Broads National Park. No visit to Eye is complete without taking a look at the fifteenth century church and Italianate Town Hall.

While away an afternoon meandering through Beccles’ narrow streets, taking in the quaint architecture and historic quayside. Pay a visit to Bigod’s Castle right in the centre of Bungay after stopping for refreshments as one of the town’s quirky cafés. Immerse yourself in culture at Halesworth, which prides itself on its blend of the arts, locally produced food, wines and small independent shops.

The unspoilt countryside of the Waveney Valley is peppered with picturesque villages, each with their own individual character. Discover some of their hidden treasures, thatched cottages, ancient round tower churches, village greens and inviting local pubs.
