With the launch of our Enjoy Diss More campaign, here we highlight just some of what the town has to offer.
For such a small town, Diss has a wealth of independent boutiques and shops offering unique products and hidden gems that you cannot find anywhere else.
The Corn Hall
This Grade II-listed building is an example of history and culture, as the former corn exchange hosts a rich roster of shows throughout the year.
From pub classics to quaint delis, Diss has a huge selection of fresh food on offer for every palate. A trip down Mere Street has a lot to offer foodies.
Diss is a market town and this takes place every Friday. Highlights include the fudge stall and “probably” the best chips either side of the border.
The iconic landmark in the middle of Diss is six acres in size and almost 20ft deep. A buzzing centre for wildlife, the lake is also a scenic spot for the town.
Diss is recorded in the Domesday Book, a survey commissioned by William the Conquerer in 1086. Almost a thousand years later it is still a thriving community.
The people are the best thing about this town, as proved by the recent snow storms which showed the community working together to help one another.
Our town is full of beautiful buildings from Fair Green to the Heritage Triangle with TV historian Dan Cruikshank calling them “sensational”.
Situated right on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk and with direct rail links to Norwich and London, it is in the countryside without being totally rural.
The rich history of Diss is documented in the small museum including information on major characters such as poet laureate John Skelton.
