A stroll down Elm Hill is really worthwhile if you are visiting Norwich. It's beautiful cobbles and tiny old buildings really impart an atmosphere of medieval Norwich. No wonder it has featured in many films. Don't forget your camera!

No trip to Norwich can be complete without a visit to Elm Hill. It has featured in many period films and as such it's cobbles have been trodden by many famous film stars. Wonderful to explore by day or night. Especially magical at Christmas and really stunning when it snows. Bring camera and keep snapping

Elm Hill is great if you're looking for the atmospheric, authentic Norwich. Cobble stones, medieval cottages, antique shops, art galleries, tearooms and little restaurants - all very attractive for an urban adventure.

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.
