Sitting at one corner of Norwich's famed market, this church is a peaceful oasis. Well worth a visit!

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

Good example of a traditional city church standing in the centre of the city adjacent to the covered market and near the city hall.

This is opposite the forum. It was a shame it was closed as we wanted to have a look inside. Maybe next time when we are in the vacinity.

Very beautiful church, with a friendly atmosphere. Sometimes there are free lunchtime concert. Right in the centre of Norwich, near to the Forum. Great views of the church at night from the Pizza Express at the forum.

In the middle of town this church is a wealth of interest. So much to see and admire. A quiet place for private meditation.

The biggest parish church in Norwich city centre. This is the "civic" church, where the mayor would go for the religious function on big occasions. An imposing building, outside and inside. I can't comment on the church as a place of worship, since I haven't attended a service there. It overlooks the city's large and colourful market square.

This is a really lovely church, all the better for being so obviously 'alive' in serving its community. A warm welcome, no entry charge (as should always be the case with churches) and a fascinating history to be explored and enjoyed. Well worth a visit, especially as it is in the city centre. We took our toddler daughter and there... More
