There is one house, now a café, at the top of the street with a plaque that states it was the only house that survived the 1507 fire. Calling this a medieval street, therefore, is stretching it a bit. I did not find this a particularly interesting street. Still, there are some nice Tudor houses. However, when it comes to... More

A quaint cobbled street, with medieval buildings. We visited in the evening and the street lighting and lack of wiring and modern day living (no road marks on the cobbles) added to an atmosphere of a time past.

All way's love this walk up Elm Hill between pub's the glass house or the Lawyer to Delaney's or the play house and Saint Andrew's Hall Told this is often used for period pieces on television not many places you can go for free and believe you have stepped back a century or more

One of the few remaining ancient parts of Norwich, a complete medieval street on the hill from Norwich City Centre. Quaint shops and houses - often used in period films and plays

I visited Elm Hill on the strength of the reviews but found it a disappointment. It is quaint (of sorts) but has little to offer beyond a few shops and a cobbled road that's almost impossible to walk on comfortably.

The beautiful old houses were a photographer's dream. Be careful on the cobbles if they are wet as they can be very slippery

I live in the city and bring people to see it's highlights. Elm Hill is very quaint but doesn't bring enough to it to make me go there. If I want cobbled streets then Lincoln has so much more to offer as has old style shops to go with it which interest people.

This is a quaint timeless cobbled street with a variety of individual shops that appeal to collectors and a very nice thatched tea room called the Britons Arms. If you are interested in architecture and buildings there's plenty here to grab your attention. 16th Century doorways, herringbone brickwork, half timbered 17th Century merchant houses adjacent to the much older St...

I lived in Norwich for ten years and found Elm Hill to be a truly unique street. You must check out the Teddy Bear Shop - they are expensive but very special bears. Elm Hill looks great in all weathers too...

Elm Hill is an almost unique street, tucked away from the main road and opposite the Cathedral. Is is a quiet, (heavily) cobbled street dating back - and with houses still intact - to the late middle ages and tudor period. Inevitably, many of the shops now cater for impulse tourist purchases (art, second-hand books, memorabilia etc.) but this does... More
