Thetford is a picturesque market town situated in the heart of the Norfolk countryside. Located on the A11 road between Norwich and London, the town is easily accessible for those looking for a quiet retreat in the countryside. The town holds historical significance as the birthplace of Thomas Paine, who was instrumental in the American Revolution, and in more recent history acting as the film set for the TV series 'Dad's Army'. Both of these facts are commemorated by statues in the town. Car hire in Thetford gives you the chance to explore these local landmarks, as well as the freedom to venture into the surrounding Norfolk countryside.
