The town

Diss is an ancient Norfolk market town, close to the Suffolk border in the Waveney Valley area of South Norfolk. The town boasts historic churches, pockets of attractive woodland and a variety of shops, restaurants and cafes. It's noted for its wonderful Mere and fountain, which form the centrepiece of the town.

Local specialist shops in the Heritage Triangle area of the town sell a range of unique goods, from craft gifts and antiques to vintage clothing and fine foods. You’ll find them in the historic yards, Cobbs Yard, Norfolk House Yard and Hales Yard as well as around the Market Place and along Mere Street. 

It’s also worth paying a visit to the Corn Hall, Diss's cultural hub. Built in 1854, but with a modern twist, it's a well-regarded arts and entertainment venue that offers a packed programme of events and free-to-access art.
