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.

The church is full of beautiful items that date back to the medieval times. We were privileged to see the sacristy. The guides were very helpful and informing. I love the baptismal font, the tapestry, and the bell ringers articles.

Central, architecturally fascinating, worth a visit. There are about 50 churches in Norwich, this is the biggest, except for the two cathedrals

Next to Norwich Cathedral another great church to visit in Norwich. And the acoustics are marvellous (if you have the chance to listen to a concert there). The church is right in the centre of Norwich, next to the Market and the Forum. Well worth a visit!

Beautiful Church nestling in the centre of the newly developed area but maintaining its character. Friendly but not pushy guide.

On my first day in Norwich, when looking for some information from the local tourist office, I noticed this Gothic church that is located in front of the Forum. It is the largest parish church in Norwich. On Monday, I found it was open and decided to have a look. This church is free to visit. I found an interesting... More
