Swaffham in the Brecks

Swaffham is an attractive, family friendly market town which sits at the very northern point of the Brecks.  Fine Georgian buildings stand as a reminder of the town’s long history of commerce, with lively markets that continue to this day.  Reputed to have been a one-time favourite of Lord Nelson, Swaffham was also home to Howard Carter, the Egyptologist who discovered the treasures of Tutankhamun.

Brecks Food and Drink Festival 2013The marketplace is transformed on Saturdays with a range of local food produce to tempt your taste buds. Every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month there is a bustling Farmer’s market and in September, Swaffham hosts the annual Brecks Food & Drink Festival. 

Swaffham is also home to the Echo-tech Centre where visitors can climb an E66 Wind Turbine to enjoy superb countryside views.  Those just wishing to stay closer to the ground can enjoy the organic garden, shop and café.
