Your new neighbourhood
Get to know Acle
Acle is a historic little town, whose 13th century church lends its name to your new home. 17th and 18th century buildings survive in the town centre, bringing glimpses of the past alongside the newer additions.
If you’re a community-minded sort of person, Acle has plenty of clubs and organisations where you can play a part in local life and meet new people. You could sign up for tennis, football, badminton,
cricket, rock and soul choir, Pilates and art; while scouts, cubs, guides, brownies, a youth club and army cadets keep the younger people busy.
Norwich, Ancient and Modern
Around The Lanes, Elm Hill and Cathedral Quarter, heritage meets the modern day, with quirky boutiques, bars and restaurants in the lopsided timbered buildings, and a 14th century merchant’s house re-purposed as a Picturehouse cinema.
The 12th century cathedral is the most famous landmark in Norwich, over 400 feet long, with a splendid tower and awe-inspiring interior. Evidence of Norwich’s prosperous medieval past can also be seen in the Guildhall and the Castle Museum, and many of the city’s old streets. Contemporary Norwich means John Lewis, M&S, and a big range of upmarket fashion and beauty names in Jarrold’s, the city’s proudly independent department store. The city also has two shopping centres packed with high street retailers, Castle Quarter and Chantry Place.
If you want a different shopping experience, the six-days-a-week market has been going since the 11th century, catering for today’s shoppers with amazing fresh food, crafts, fabrics, flowers and much more.
Broads and Beaches
Acle is on the very edge of The Broads National Park, loved by holidaymakers, but yours to enjoy whenever the mood takes you. These manmade lagoons and natural rivers form a unique landscape where wildlife thrives – you may even glimpse an otter – and are an idyllic location for boating, fishing, cycling and walking.
Norfolk also has some incomparable beaches; the northern edge of the country is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Most are within an hour or so’s drive from St Edmund’s Park. Horsey Beach is one of the closest. It’s a windswept unspoilt expanse where, in winter, grey seals give birth to their pups and can be seen all year swimming and sunning themselves.
