The name attracted us on a Sunday morning so we popped in to catch the end of the service. Lovely choral singing and the chance to join in the final hymn.

This is a superb example of a well-kept city church. There is a treasury as well as some very good brasses for rubbing. Lovely to see all the pews still in place. The "Quiet Chapel" is especially poignant with its book of remembrance. Great church magazine and bookstall too!

A very historic church in the centre of Norwich. It's clear glass windows make it exceptionally light which is unusual.

In the 15th Century the merchants of Norwich fell out with the clergy of the Cathedral. Their response was to rebuilt the town's church in the new style of the time - English Perpendicular. The building is extravagant with a truly magnificent roof, with little gargoyles of the merchants who paid for the building. The merchants earned their money dealing... More

A VERY popular event that we have attended for the past 2 years - it's gets packed out - standing room only - so best advice is to get there early if you want to get a seat! A lovely atmosphere which sets the scene perfectly for getting those last minute bits

very large parish church with good parish magazine. we were entertained by an impromptu singer and a piano player (not together). some information on some of the features would have helped, especially the font woodwork. excellent location next to the excellent market

This large church in the centre of the city is often mistaken for the Cathedral by new visitors, as it has such a scale and sense of grandeur about it. Don't miss this wonderful building when you visit Norwich.

Situated near the bustling market and impressive 'Forum' is the lovely church where you will always find a warm welcome from volunteers. Only a few paces from the shopping street and MacDonalds restaurant it really is worth a contemplative stop.
