Discover Harleston

Set in the heart of the Waveney Valley, Harleston is a vibrant market town, filled with historic buildings and plenty of character. Old coaching inns remain as a legacy from the days when the town was on the main coaching route from London to Great Yarmouth. 

Home to a delightful array of speciality shopping, bustling market stalls, food and music festivals and a thriving centre for the arts, it's little wonder Harleston was once voted Norfolk Town of the Year.

Every Wednesday Harleston hosts two Markets  where you can enjoy a variety of interesting stalls selling local goods, delicious and tempting Norfolk food and general household items.  The Wednesday Market comes to the centre of Harleston from 06:00 until 16:00. Harleston Country Market is held at King George's Hall from 09:30 until 11:00.

If you fancy exploring the beautiful countryside, you can do this on foot with three circular walks starting in the town, or hire a bike to enjoy the Harleston and Waveney cycling routes.

You can also enjoy nearby award-winning microbreweries, Grain Brewery and St Peter’s Brewery and for aircraft enthusiasts the Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum is the place to visit. 

Whether it’s fascinating history, a spot of shopping or just time to unwind you're sure to find something to interest you in this charming market town.
