The real charm of Aylsham is in its beautiful architecture, strong sense of heritage, bustling town centre and real community ethos. Aylsham thinks of itself as Norfolk’s proper market town. The market place, which is owned by the National Trust, is the heart of this Norfolk market town. It hosts two weekly markets, monthly farmer’s markets and a host of community events throughout the year.

Aylsham is a Norfolk market town with a difference, it is one of only five UK Cittaslow towns. The very core of Cittaslow is about quality of living and bringing the community together for the common good. Before any town is awarded Cittaslow status they must meet a number of criteria from a set list. While this Cittaslow status represents a real symbol of the quality of life in Aylsham, Aylsham will always take pride in its Norfolk market town roots while fully embracing the Cittaslow ethos.

For kids and families we’ve got soft play centres, indoor and outdoor activity centres, amusement parks, swimming pools, ski slopes, water parks, children’s farms, horse riding, pottery making, ice skating, sports centres, roller skating, go karting, paintball, climbing walls, ten pin bowling and much more.

The Aylsham Murder Mystery Treasure Trail should be purchased prior to leaving home. Once you have your Trail booklet in your hand you're good to go!

And when you’re starting to feel hungry, thirsty or tired then check out the best places to eat, drink and stay for the night. We love new suggestions to keep the site up to date and comprehensive, so feel free to send in all your local favourites.
