Some of Thetford’s most impressive buildings will open their doors to the public on Saturday.

Thetford Grammar School, Riversdale and King’s House will all feature as part of this year’s National Heritage Open Days, as well as the town’s three museums, and the library which will feature the 13 ages of the town’s history.

There will also be two guided walks around the town centre - the first from the town bridge at 10.30am, followed a second from the steps of the Guildhall at 2pm.

All events are free and a timetable of openings is available at the Tourist Information Centre on King Street or by calling 01842 751975.
