The White Horse Inn at Upton The White Horse Inn at Upton

Upton

Upton is everything you would expect of a sleepy Norfolk country village. It's adjacent to the River Bure, connected by the aptly named Upton Dyke. The village has a population of around 700 inhabitants and takes around 20 minutes to drive the 13 miles from central Norwich.

Things to see and do:
The River Bure is on your doorstep and should you want to see some of the Broadland villages, you are able to hire a self-drive dayboat from Bridgecraft, in nearby Acle. From here, you can also catch a train to Norwich to spend the day sightseeing this fine city, or go in the opposite direction to the seaside town of Great Yarmouth. For those who like to walk, The White Horse public house has got together with the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, to produce some guided walk leaflets exhibiting the best of the area.

Local pubs, restaurants:
The White Horse Inn is the centre of the village in more ways than one. It is a meeting point for lots of village events. The food is good and varied. It often has live music at weekends in the season and a regular weekly quiz night throughout the year. In nearby Acle, is the Bridge Inn. This popular pub and restaurant is located beside the river. It is very busy and reservations are advisable.

Cafes and takeaways:

There are no cafes or takeaways in Upton, but nearby Acle has three cafes. The Dunes is located next to the river, the others, The Wild Bean Cafe, and the Studio Art Gallery and Tearooms are in the town centre. Indian and Chinese takeaways are are also to be found here.
