Wymondham is a bustling market town about 9 miles south west of Norwich, just off the A11. The town has witnessed a long and fascinating history, including Kett's Rebellion, religious upset, and the devastation caused by the Great Fire of 1615.
Today, the attractive town centre is home to many fascinating buildings, streets and shops. From countless picturesque riverside walks, to the 15th century inn, a historic railway and the ever-popular music festival held every year, this charming Norfolk town offers it all: a lively atmosphere, bags of character and plenty to see and do.
The town is well served by roads and public transport (see below). Parking near the Abbey is limited - use the town centre car parks marked on the map below; the Abbey is then a short stroll through the town.
