Discover Diss

Diss is centrally located to access the Norfolk Broads, the Suffolk and North Norfolk coast and is little more than 20 miles from Norwich on the London Liverpool Street train line. It is the gateway to the beautiful Waveney Valley which stretches eastwards from this historic market town.

With its famous Mere, one of the deepest natural inland lakes in the country set within lush green parkland, fine examples of Georgian architecture, the stunning Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin overlooking the town centre and independent boutiques tucked away in hidden yards, Diss is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered.

A traditional market is held at Diss Market Place every Friday from 09:30 until 15:00 and the Diss Farmer’s Market comes to town on the second Saturday of each month from 09:00 until 13:00.

If you love antiques and collectables, head to TW Gaze's salesrooms. Their auction day is every Friday and is often televised. Or enjoy great entertainment at the Diss Corn Hall from music, comedy and family fun to theatre, film and exhibitions.

You can visit the award winning community Diss Museum, open from March to October, every day from 11am - 3pm. Admission is free.

Nearby is the 100th Bomb Group Memorial Museum on the former WWII airfield at Thorpe Abbotts, and Bressingham Steam & Gardens for those who love history, steam trains and beautiful gardens.
