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

In a city that has a lot of old churches, this one stands out. As well as being a very beautiful building has a sense of being alive and a spiritual place. Went in with the intention of spending 15 minutes and was still there an hour later. It should definitely have a place among the Norwich 12.

We were fortunate enough to have visited this church as their choir was rehearsing for Easter Sunday. We spent 20- 30 minutes just reveling in the beauty of the choir's voices. It was a special moment sitting in this very light filled church.

Norwich Cathedral is just one of the many fantastic architecrural wonders that Norwich hosts. St. Peter Mancroft is deffinitely another one. Quite impressive interior as well as a very potent exterior of dark rock.

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.
