This is an area of very old buildings, once scheduled for demolition and renewal but fortunately saved. A picturesque area, where you will find the town house of the Paston family ( of letter writing fame from the Middle Ages), and an interesting shop selling old stamps and coins.

I just love elm hill. The cobbled road and quiet atmosphere really takes you on a trip to yesteryear. There are some beautiful historic buildings and different independant buisinesses. A visit to the quaint teddy bear shop is a must. Also the britons arms is a lovely casual restaurant.

The Elm died of Dutch Elm disease but there are loads of original buildings down here. I came on a guided walk and it was good to be told what I was looking at.....

the whole street especially the britons arms coffee house which is one of the oldest buildings in norwich and was once the meeting place of the barber/surgeons of the city in the 16th-17th century.

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

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. While you are there take a look at the 'back' of Elm Hill along the River Wensum to see the higgledy piggledy constructions of 'bits' of building before... More

Many of the old shops seem to have closed and were empty but the old favourites like the teddy bear shop and military coin shops remain

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
