Visit Downham Market and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Downham Market, Norfolk, stands above the surrounding fens, 12 miles south of King's Lynn, on the River Ouse. Rich finds of Romano-British pottery show that the district was an important early centre, and the position of the crossroad at the junction of the Al122 and the Al0 substantiates this.
The Church of St Edmund has a spire on top of its Early English tower; the rest of the building is Perpendicular. The west gallery is wooden and 18th-century, and over the chancel door is an ancient Gothic crucifix. Buildings worth seeking out include Howdale Home, the former workhouse built in 1836 in the Elizabethan style; Mount Tabor Chapel in Bridge Street, 1809; and the cast-iron neo-Gothic Clock Tower of 1878.
