To Do in Norwich

Once England's second city, the fine city of Norwich has a rich history combined with a unique, independent spirit which provides an unparalleled offering of shops and experiences to visitors. For foodies or caffeine-addicts there are endless cafés, restaurants, market stalls and other eateries to indulge the senses, while lovers of real ale will delight in the number of pubs and bars offering quality local casks in atmospheres to suit every taste. Shoppers, get lost in the fabulous Norwich Lanes with their range of boutiques or antiques, or wander the maze of Norwich Market, the largest outdoor market in Western Europe. For those looking for history or atmosphere, explore the more than 30 medieval churches scattered through the city, or wander Elm Hill, a perfectly preserved Tudor street full of quirks and stories of its own. For Norwich's top attraction, visit the Norman Cathedral, only a short walk from All Hallows. Experience one of four daily services, or explore the cloisters and library, followed by a drink or a bite in the refectory. Enjoy a lazy walk along the River Wensum as it winds through historic cobbled streets and past medieval remnants, or hire a boat and paddle along the river for a different view of the city.

Further afield, the Norfolk Broads National Park is a short journey away, along with other Norfolk attractions including Walsingham, Wells-Next-the-Sea and Cromer. And of course, Norfolk and Suffolk's many famed beaches are an easy journey by train, bus or car.
