The building is beautiful and the peace and spirituality of the building is felt immediately on entry. Excellent stained glass and a must to see when on a visit to Norwich. Often drop in for a short visit each time I am in the city and am never disappointed with my time spent there.

Beautiful alters and a wonderful peaceful atmosphere. You can light a candle for a loved one and it's certainly a place for contemplation and prayer.

Started at St.Peter Mancroft one of many fine churches in Norwich with beautiful stained glass windows, nice light interior a good start to our wander around. Norwich to us is still a beautiful city and always worth a visit. It is clean and the people seem reasonably happy and going into various shops to be greeted cheerfully with a smile,... More

Unlike many cities with magnificent cathedrals, Norwich has (in principle: see below) a good collection of parish churches. St Peter Mancroft is a "must visit" for Norwich. Wonderful, light interior, 14/15th century glass, majestic roof. Take the time to gaze and be amazed and be glad so much has survived. BUT.... Oh dear. What has become of Norwich? A visit... More

A must, why? My father always talked about this easily found church- yet in all my years in Norwich, I never made it. Clearly someone wanted to impress someone- fantastic.
