Thetford Bus Interchange & Bus Services

Thetford Bus Interchange is located between Minstergate and St Nichols Street, just west of the town centre. It is served by local and national bus services. Facilities are somewhat basic, with limited shelters and a set of toilets. The Bus Interchange is owned and operated by Norfolk County Council. The Interchange is served by a number of local, regional and national bus services.


There are toilets at the Interchange, which are managed by Thetford Town Council. There is no indoor waiting area, but there are shelters at each of the stops. The shelters are inexplicably tall though, so do not offer much protection from driving rain. There is good CCTV coverage of the Interchange.

Covered bicycle parking stands are available by the toilets. There is a short-stay car park (free for up to 20 minutes) on St Nocholas Street for drop-offs and pick-ups, which also has spaces for taxis. Free longer term parking can be found nearby in the St Nicholas Street (weekends only) and Minstergate car parks.
