Welcome to Downham Market Town Council website.


The Mayor’s Welcome


Downham Market is a small market town on the edge of the fens which, like all others, has grown over recent years and its people are open and friendly but mindful of their town’s history and heritage.

The town has good road and rail links to Cambridge and London and was recently voted by a National Sunday newspaper the twenty second best place to live in the country. Those of us who live here can see why and perhaps if you come to visit us so will you.

The Town Council provide almost four hundred car parking spaces in the centre of town which are completely free at the point of use and almost every shop in the town will be able to provide you with information on the town and surrounding areas.

The town holds two markets one on Friday and one on Saturday; these are held on the Town Hall car park in the centre of town. There are also a wide range of shops from small and medium independent traders to national stores where a full range of goods can be obtained.

If you wish to eat out the town has a full range of diners from fish and chip takeaways to top class restaurants and likewise if you wish to stay your needs can be met from simple bed and breakfast to hotels and historic inns.

Should you decide to come and visit our town and see what we have to offer, you will always find a warm welcome waiting for you.

I have chosen the Dyspraxia Foundation as my chosen charity for my Mayoral Year. More information on this charity can be found at http://www.dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk/
