Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Poringland is an excellent base for those who are interested in nature and wildlife as it is near the Norfolk Broads, rivers and nature reserves. Also within easy reach are places of historical interest to visit including many in Norwich and Bungay, along with the remains of a Roman town at Caistor St. Edmund. The countryside and coast provide plenty of picturesque areas to walk, along with pleasant restaurants, public houses and cafes; and much, much more.

Recreationally there are a number of local walks, including Poringland Wood, a playing field, and a children’s playbarn. Some 20 acres of public open space is also planned as part of our overall development, together with a 15 acre community woodland. For local events, an impressive new community centre has recently been built offering a range of facilities. As the village grows further improvements to amenities are planned.

The historical city of Norwich remains the main commercial, cultural, retail, entertainment and transport link for the county if not the region. Trains run regularly from here to London, Cambridge and the rest of the country. Norwich also has an expanding international airport with domestic, European and (indirect) international flights.

Local Shopping

Within the village is a range of shops and services that are adequate for everyday needs, including a good sized modern supermarket, a post office, pharmacy and petrol station. Other shops include take-away food restaurants, estate agents and a number of local pubs and restaurants to frequent.


There is a primary school that feeds into the high school in the adjoining village of Framingham Earl. The high school also doubles as a community sports centre.


The village is served by a couple of doctors surgeries, a dental practice and a veterinary practice.
