Trains to Diss

Poet John Betjeman declared to Harold Wilson's wife that it would be 'bliss' to travel with the Prime Minister to Diss by train. Travellers may not be guaranteed such auspicious company, but they are guaranteed a tremendous train journey into this buoyant and charming market town. Since Diss was first granted a charter in 1185, the town's main draw has been its market. It is still held every Friday, located next to the elegant Dolphin House, a Grade II-listed timber framed building dating back to 1520. There are 16th century buildings scattered throughout the town, most notably the Corn Hall, now a popular entertainment venue. But perhaps Diss's most striking feature of all is Diss Mere, a wildlife-rich six-acre lake right in the centre of town. You'll find it about a mile west of the station. The station itself dates back to 1847, and retains its character despite a 2013 facelift that added a waiting room and extra toilets.
