Plan a Great Day Out
Why not travel on to the fascinating Grime's Graves, four miles to the northeast and the only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain?
Or eight miles to the southeast of the castle is the town of Thetford where you can visit Thetford Priory, the burial site of the earls and dukes of Norfolk for nearly 400 years. And then within a stone's throw of the priory is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the only surviving remains of a priory of the Canons of the Holy Sepulchre in England.
