The ferry house is an unexpected delight - walking on the river bank fro the railway station the path leaves the riverside briefly and as you turn slightly right across the road from the ferry the exquisite old building with a wide arch for traffic from the ferry really catches the eye.

This is a quiet spot by the River Wensum - nice for a walk by the river or just to sit in nice weather and read a book or newspaper and watch the world go by. From late spring until early autumn it is nice to walk here in the early evenings too - close to Norwich City centre but... More

A superb walk that can link the city centre shopping and the cathedral. Tree lined along the river Wensum it's an opportunity for reflection and just take in the peace and quiet. The information board by Pulls Ferry explains the history thoroughly, and photography from the opposite side will enhance any display. On our last trip it was showery but... More

This is a really pretty walking area - obviously much better when the sun is out but even on a crisp, sunny winters day it is a great place to go and blow the cobwebs away. There is a pub a short way away and serve great beers and snacks.

It's a picturesque spot best photographed on the other side of the river. So have a walk via it, round the Close, and head to the Red Lion/Adam and Eve or Wig and Pen afterwards. The daffs are quite nice in the spring. But it's probably better to do the Cathedral and visit the Hostry as your activity of the... More

There's a lovely riverside walk from the town around a horseshoe bend back to the main road. Pass Cow tower and along the watermeadow passing Pull's Ferry gate leading to the water's edge. It's a lovely tranquil walk

The chilly february days did not stop us from walking again and again around this piece of history. This... plus the proximity to the river walk and the green garden like scenery made our late winter stay in feb one of the most relaxing times.

Pull's ferry is a great place to visit at any time of the year. It makes a great frame for a photo. Walk along the river and visit Cow tower or the Cathedral.
