Just off City centre - the older part of Norwich opposite the cathedral - this is worth a stroll. Takes you back to a bygone age. Can be negotiated with wheelchairs. Then at the bottom of hill, walk into the bustle of Norwich.

I spent a few hours in this beautiful oldy-worldly part of Norwich. It is quite a photographers dream. The various light shades - from sunlight to late afternoon filtering through the leaves of the one tree onto the surrounding buildings and the cobbled road give a magical feel to this very picturesque area. A camera and tripod, walking shoes and... More

I first photographed this gorgeous part of Norwich over 40 years ago and recently returned as a tourist, it still retains its period beauty and quaintness, in fact the only things that had changed was the size of the tree and the quality of my camera's, a must see if you visit Norwich

A nice little narrow cobbled street with old buildings on either side. Interesting antique shop half way up, also small cafes and so on. Definitely worth a visit.

In the heart of old Norwich this quaint, cobbled street has remained largely untouched by modern development. Contains a lovely selection of individual retail outlets - particularly the teddy bear shop - a touch of nostalgia for us all. Only a 5-10 walk from the main city centre although the walk back takes you uphill!

Very quaint, cobble stoned and lined with small shops, tearooms and restaurants. Include in a wander around Norwich

Quaint and full of curiosity shops that sell unusual items. Fantastic as only a short walk from the modern centre and you are suddenly back in a cobbled street place full of old non chain shops.

Love elm hill so much, being a resident of Norwich I love walked up and down this cobbled road. I can't believe at one time the they wanted to Tarmac it! Lots of unique shops to be seen too, especially the bear shop, the shop is so small and packed top to bottom of gorgeous bears, Robert is also a... More

A lovely old fashioned street in Norwich, abit away from the maddening crowd now too ! Has also been used as a film set. The cobbles are lovely, but take care if they are wet. It has some interesting shops too.

A wonderful street full of historical merchant homes and shops, Elm Hill is a perfect throughway to/from the Cathedral/Tombland to the high street/Guildhall/market stalls. Great for photographers, there are several interesting shops like the Bear Shop (stuffed toys, lots of stuffed toys), antique stores, jewelers, a wonderful used book shop and the Briton Arms which is the only building to...
