We visited for a friends wedding and it was a gorgeous place to have the ceremony. Whilst it's right in the centre of town, the church feels so peaceful and quiet. Beautiful architecture and decorations. The gold alter is a highlight. Definitely worth a pop in if you're in Norwich and interested in architecture/history.

A reminder of older times when things were simpler and phones, tablets, TVs, facebook and email accounts weren't talking most of your day and you had time to enjoy life as it was. I love this type of old architectural places and Norwich is full of them. Just take the time to observe these places, and you will find the... More

There's something typically British about sitting outside on a Sunday morning listening to the church bells ringing out and admiring the skill of the bell ringers within. If you have a connection with Norwich, you will notice the names of the good and the great of the city that adorn the many memorials in and around the interior. The church... More

Located in the centre of Norwich, a wonderful oasis of peace, tranquility and quiet just when you need it. Amazing architecture both inside and out with a welcome whenever you drop in. Various publications about the history for sale and a laminated description for a self guided tour. Make sure you look up and take in the work of the... More

This was on our trail around Norwich....we visited the two big cathedrals but this church is also well worth a visit. It is right in the centre of Norwich close to the Market. It is nearly 600 years old, they certainly knew how to build back then.

The church seems to be open only for services, with no provision for visitors that I could identify (and this was in July).

Church was built in 1430 and has been so well maintained. Amazing tower with bells still ringing today. We walk past such great architecture every day and forget how much effort it takes to preserve.

Lovely church and the bell ringing competition was a bonus! We were so pleased to sit outside with a small crowd of others and hear the various bell "teams" competing. Loved the family nature of this event and of so much else in Norwich.
