Commonly known as the Capital of the Fens, the attractive and historic market town of Wisbech is renowned for its elegant Georgian architecture.
Copious amounts of history with a connected future...
The town has an abundance of amenities to offer, such as a theatre, swimming pool, library, good schools and the Horsefair Shopping Centre. Browse the shops or visit the market on a Thursday or Saturday with a wide range of traders offering locally grown produce and plants.
Explore the surroundings by taking a leisurely walk through the tranquil gardens in the heart of the town centre, which have been awarded a commendation award for Innovation for its links to the town’s Merchant Trail. The Merchant’s trail shares the history of the many famous characters of the town, telling the story of how Wisbech became one of the most prosperous ports in the country during the 18th and 19th centuries.
Wisbech Park is just a five minute walk from the town centre. Extending to over 12 acres, the facilities include tennis courts, bowls green, two children’s play areas and a multi-use games area for five-a-side and basketball.
Once owned by a Quaker banking family for over 150 years, Peckover House and Gardens is a classic Georgian merchant’s town house, which is certainly worth a visit. Now in the care of National Trust, Peckover House is an oasis hidden away from the town centre with two acres of beautiful Victorian gardens.
Perfectly situated to access all that Norfolk has to offer, from beaches to forests, yet still a stone’s throw from our neighbouring counties and both King’s Lynn and the city of Peterborough, possessing excellent rail links.
With copious history and a connected future, Wisbech is a market town to be envied.
