Visiting Diss…

Diss is lovely ancient Norfolk market town, close to the Suffolk border in the delightful Waveney Valley area of South Norfolk. The Town is packed with beautiful historic churches, a variety of lovely independent shops and most remembered for its wonderful Mere at the centre of the Town with a glorious fountain located in the middle.


Local specialist shops in Diss sell a range of craft gifts and antiques. You’ll find them around the historic Diss yards including Cobbs Yard, Norfolk House Yard and Hales Yard. This is a great place for meeting our unique independent traders.

It’s also worth paying a visit to our stunning Corn Hall. Built in 1854 and recently refurbished, it is a fantastic arts and entertainment venue offering a packed programme of theatre, films, music concerts and events. It’s a truly wonderful venue! Click here to visit The Corn Hall’s website for their events programme and further information.
