Dad's Army Museum Thetford

Since it opened in December 2007, the Dad's Army Museum has gone from strength to strength. Today thousands of visitors make their way to Thetford (Walmington-on-Sea) each year to see where the series was filmed and to learn more about one of the most enduring comedy programmes ever produced.
