Enjoy re-living the past of Norwich's Elm Hill with the 16th century buildings endorsing the beauty that only Norwich can show you. The historic value is worth noting a part of Norwich being A Fine City

Liked the beautiful area to walk thru. Lots of unique architecture. Old church to tour. The cobble stone street is amazing!

Elm Hill is a cobbled street with many Tudor Houses along it. I always take people who have never visited Norwich before to see Elm Hill because it is quite a sight.

It is hard to believe that in the 1960s the city was determined to demolish Elm Hill, and did remove the majority of similar roads in the city. Interesting small shops, and the effect of travelling back in time as you walk on the rough flint cobbles. Plaques now explain the buildings former uses. Would it be worth coming to... More

This is a very old part of Norwich, which is now home to fine antique shops, gift shops, and a bespoke wedding dress shop and other independent one off shops. All the building are individually unique. with narrow pavements and a Cobble Street.

Interesting buildings. Plaques helped explain history of place. Britons Arms looked interesting but no time to visit.

A short but beautiful street. When I was a student in Norwich I would often take detours to make sure I could walk up and down Elm Hill to and from places. It has a touch of quiet magic about it!

Get a taste of medieval Norwich, a stone's throw away from the historic cathedral close. There's a fab craft shop at the end of the road as well as a wonderful restaurant serving delicious homemade food in a charming, cosy setting.
