Location The historic and medieval town of Aylsham stands behind the River Bure and is ideally located for easy access to a number of key locations to include Norwich, some 12.5 miles south, Cromer, 11.2 miles north, Holt, to the north west 12 miles and North Walsham, to the east 7.8 miles.

Aylsham has all the characteristics you would expect to find in any Norfolk market town with its charming narrow streets and alleys and the unspoilt market place which has been holding a regular farmers market since the 1500's, creating a vibrant atmosphere among local and the visitors to the area. There are various examples of fine architecture dating back over many centuries alongside a stunning church steeped in regional Norfolk history. The town boasts one of the largest concentrations of listed buildings in Norfolk and is close to Blickling Hall, once the home to the Boleyn family.

Aylsham has a rich array of independent retailers together with a twice weekly market, farmers market, Budgens and Tesco's supermarkets. Great transport links include the A140 just to the east of the town giving access to the cathedral city of Norwich and the Victorian seaside town of Cromer. There is also The Bure Valley Railway running to Wroxham, the capital of the picturesque Norfolk broads.
