Tucked away near the cathedral, Elm Hill has serenity and charm. We returned several times during our week in Norwich. The cafe on the corner makes a lovely pot of tea or coffee and has home-made cakes. It is worth visiting Elm Hill to get away from the bustle of the city and read a book under the tree for... More

Time has stood still (almost) in this picturesque corner of Norwich. Take a while out of the bustle to soak in the historic atmosphere - better early morning before too many other people are around.

The buildings have a lot of charm, but essentially this is a small street of slightly niche shops, and not particularly an attraction in its own right.

This was a charming little area of Norwich. The main street has been used in films such as " Stardust" and it is very cute. Gave you an idea of what Norwich might have been like in the past.

This is probably the oldest street in Norwich and it was an interesting walk through the past. Great photo oppotunities. There are number of great pubs close by if you walk down the hill.

Elm HIll is a must see if you're coming to visit Norwich. It is the oldest street in the city and with most history. An original cobbled street and dating back to at least the 16th century. Here you will find a merchants house and the houses in the street some of which belonged to dyers. Today the street has... More

Elm Hill is one of Norwich's must see places. The charm of the houses and the cobbled streets attracts tourists and locals alike. Lovely little shops to explore - love The Bear Shop!!

Came down here to have a look, but apart from a rather scruffy bear shop and some down-beat antiques shops (some closed) a cobbled lane with some old buildings in it - Magdalen street is much, much better!

Quite possibly one of, if not my favorite part of Norwich. So much history in the buildings and such a lovely atmosphere. I've only had the chance to visit one or two of the shops but I always pop back to see more. If you're sightseeing in Norwich this is definitely the place to be.

A quiet stroll, many historic buildings, an atmospheric spot. I vey much appreciate that these homeowners and businesses preserve our living history.
