The market town of Diss, approximately five miles to the south offers a commuter service to London via Liverpool Street station in a journey time of around 90 minutes. Dickleburgh has village shop/post office, church, Primary school and bus routes along with village pub. A number of sports clubs and societies are also based in the village.
