Welcome to Downham Market Town Council website.
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
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
