Welcome to Aylsham Heritage Centre's Website
Located in the old church rooms in the grounds of St Michael's Church, Aylsham Heritage Centre is a resource for the local community to find out more about the heritage of the area. We are also one of the Tourist Information points in the town.
From the Marketplace, head into the churchyard and walk down the path keeping the church on your left. The centre can be found at the end of the path next to the War memorial.

The Heritage Centre is closed for the winter break. We will open again at 10.30am on February 28th 2018 with a brand new exhibition about the stories behind the street names in Aylsham.
Brand New Website - written for and by children
Over the last couple of years we have noticed that all the information about the history of the town is aimed at adults. So, in order to put this right, we managed to gain some funding from the Jubilee Trust to create a website for children, written by children. A team from Bure Valley helped us out and the results can be found at https://aylshamhistoryforchildren.weebly.com/ They really have done a cracking job!
Breakfast with Santa
Our annual festive breakfast took place on the 3rd December in Aylsham Town Hall. We enjoyed breakfast, made some crafts, spent time with Santa and shared a story with him too. Make sure you book early for next year so you don't miss out!
We have an exhibition of Roman Artefacts in the centre, from the finds made at Woodgate Nursery. We even have some Roman pottery you can handle too!
There are always lots of things happening at the centre.
