Acle is a small, attractive market town on the River Bure on The Norfolk Broads – an area of outstanding natural beauty and a perfect area for a wedding. The name “Acle” means “oaks lea”, that is, a clearing in an oak forest. In Tudor times, hundreds of oaks were felled here for timber to construct Elizabeth I’s war ships. Acle has been an important trade centre since the 13th Century and has held regular markets here since then, with livestock sales being a central part of it. Today, Acle has grown to a population of about 2,700, attracted by its friendly character and the fact that it sits conveniently midway between Norwich and Great Yarmouth. To the visitor, Acle has much to offer, from plenty of facilities to glimpses of its historic past.
