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

The church is well worth a visit and is open 10 to 4 in the week and, during the summer months on Sundays after the 10 am service. The church is largely medieval with some more modern refurbishments (e.g the font and some of the stained glass windows have Victorian "implants"). the services are traditional C of E (BCP etc)...

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.

After the Cathedral and the Roman Catholic Cathedral this has to be one of the most spectacular buildings in the centre of Norwich. It is right in the centre of the city facing one of Britain's few remaining daily markets but just go inside and it is so peaceful. It faces one of Norwich's most spectacular new buildings - the...

The Church was serene and surrounded by cherry blossom in the very heart of Norwich set in a modern market square. The interior was quiet and secular after the hubbub of the world on it's doorstep
