Experience a unique urban retreat where Julian of Norwich lived and wrote
A place of peace and pilgrimage
All Hallows offers a unique experience for anyone staying in Norwich.
We are part of the Julian Shrine by the cell at St Julian's church where Julian of Norwich lived and wrote over six centuries ago. Ideal for retreats or city breaks, we are only a short walk from the cathedral, Norwich's famous outdoor market, and all that this fine city has to offer, not to mention good transport links with the rest of Norfolk and Suffolk.
Our modern, comfortable rooms come with access to a selection of common areas, including walled churchyard, private chapel, library and study space, and sitting room with log fire.
All Hallows offers guests the unique opportunity to stay in the heart of Norwich at the Julian Shrine, where Lady Julian lived and wrote her Revelations of Divine Love. On site you will find the Julian shop and visitor centre, and St Julian's Church containing Julian of Norwich's cell where the first book written in English by a woman was compiled more than six centuries ago.

What We Offer
At All Hallows Guesthouse we offer simple but comfortable hospitality in a contemplative style. Our focus is on community and tranquility, shaped around a pattern of prayer. You will find no TVs at All Hallows, we instead encourage guests to use our common areas to get to know one another, or enjoy private reflection undisturbed by the constant motion of modern life. Whether you are looking for a quiet escape, reflective retreat or pilgrim's rest, All Hallows is the perfect place to start.
Each of our bedrooms has free WiFi, private sink and easy access to shared toilet and shower facilities. Guests are also welcome to spend time in our private chapel, comfortable sitting room, shared kitchen or in the adjoining churchyard garden, a green oasis hidden in the centre of our historic city.
Every booking comes with a complimentary simple continental breakfast. All our ingredients are sourced with care for quality and provenance, ensuring the very best and most sustainable food is offered. We make our own artisan bread in house, and of course all ingredients are fairly traded and organic whenever possible.
Restful...immaculate, friendly and great value.
