Walking up Elm Hill is one of our earliest memories of Norwich and accordingly we always pay our respects when visiting. It's a characterful street with history and a healthy collection of independent enterprises - very refreshing in these times of chain stores on every corner.

The cobble stones, quirky shops and unusual medieval architecture makes this a great place to visit. Not far from the Cathedral, it adds to the cultural and historical Norwich walks.

This is an ancient street in the middle of Norwich, cobbled and entails traversing a gentle hill, passing a whole range of small, interesting shops, especially antique shops. There are a couple of alleyways leading off to the River Wensum which runs right through the city. A lovely area to visit with several medieval churches nearby.

Elm Hill is a lovely area to wander round, lots of little independent shops coffee bars and resturants. We spent quite a long time here just browsing and people watching. Well worth a visist.

Back in the 50s, Norwich City Council decided to demolish Elm Hill because it was so old and rickety. The citizenry objected, campaigned and now it is the most fascinating medieval street in the UK. Although Elm Hill is a working street, you can see quite easily how its former residents lived. Not to be missed.

I really love this street, it is my favourite. It is cobbled, so very uneven under foot but so very worth going to see. It has really very old quaint shops and galleries to visit where you will have to watch your head on the beams in some places. There is a wonderful tea shop that sells loose teas as... More

Quaint is a word often used when describing Elm Hill, upmarket and antique would be another couple! Very narrow cobbled street with a few expensive shops looking for the more mature shopper, think York with less traffic! My ankles always remind me that the street is cobbled so bear it in mind if you visit on the way to Norwich... More
