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.

Almost like travelling through time, love the cobbled street, not much on the route apart from fine buildings and picturesque vistas

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.

Elm Hill is a well preserved ancient cobbled street with many old and beautiful buildings. It shows no signs of modernity and is rightly praised as the most photographed street in Norwich. Ladies will need flat shoes as the cobbles can be tricky

Visited after having been to cathedral. Lovely old street with cobble stones, houses of different eras of history many having blue plaques commemorating previous residents. Quite a steep climb at the end but well worth a visit. Could almost imagine ladies in 17th century dress and gentlemen with top hats, frock coats and canes walking along. So pleased we took... More

Beautiful place -untouched through time! You can imagine how it was all those years ago as you walk along the authentic cobbled streets. Really worth a visit.

Elm Hill is to be treasured, an education in what town and city streets were like, and how they can survive, be protected, loved and maintained. It is mercifully free of any chain shops or cafes, every building trading is independent and run by the woners, and the street is still largely residential ( so respect that with noise levels,...

Norwich has a generous number of interesting, picturesque buildings and this is a street packed with them. Lots of local history and a few interesting shops. Worth a leisurely stroll.
