Brandon is a town of two halves: one a historic market town with pretty flint buildings, the other a base for thrill-seekers and outdoors enthusiasts.
Brandon is positioned on the edge of an ancient landscape known as The Brecks: 370 square miles of lowland heaths, mysterious earthworks and gnarled, twisted pines. It’s a landscape teeming with rare wildlife, and crisscrossed with miles of cycling and walking paths. For a relaxing day out, take a trip to the High Forest Lodge Centre just outside Brandon and follow these trails through the majestic Thetford Forest at a leisurely pace.
If adrenaline is more your style, then look up: in the tree tops of Thetford Forest you’ll find Go Ape, a renowned high wire adventure park where you can explore the forest by swinging from tree to tree.
To round off your stay in Brandon, make sure you visit Brandon Country Park, which manages to be beautiful in every season.
