The historic market town of Diss is located on the Norfolk/Suffolk border and is situated in the beautiful Waveney Valley. The town has one of the deepest natural inland lakes in the country, which covers an area of 6 acres and is very much the focal point of the town.
The town has a population approaching 7,000. However, the town also serves a recognised rural catchment area of approximately 40,000 people.
Diss town centre comprises some excellent examples of Georgian and Edwardian buildings, as well as a public park, the Mere and a number of thriving shopping streets and the market place. The Market operates every Friday and coincides with a local antiques and collectables auction.
The town has a mainline railway station which gives access to London, Liverpool Street in approximately 90 minutes and Norwich in approximately 17 minutes, meaning Diss is a great location for commuters wanting access to either location. Diss also has good road links with the A140 running from Norwich to Ipswich and the A143 running from Bury St Edmunds to Great Yarmouth bordering the town.
