It is an area that most people just drive through to and from work, but it is so much more than that. There are a wide choice of restaurants to satisfy most people. But do look up as the buildings have some excellent architectural features and of course it is the 'foyer' to the cathedral with the two magnificent entry... More

Try Norwich as a great alternative to York. You will not be diasappointed. Old cobbled streets and a great Castle.

This is where more of the chain restaurants are and where the food and service is far better than in the town. Prezzos gives you good food and excellent service. Zizis is also very good with pizzas served on unusual but delicious bases.

Tombland is a road which leads to Princes Street and Elm Hill, among many other attractions. There is a lovely bookshop with old editions and a great variety of novels etc., the road leads to Magdelan Street, where there is a variety of restaurants from around the world.

A great place to wander around. Plenty of shops as you meander along the lanes of Tombland. We walked around there quite a bit on our last visit to Norwich and kept discovering quaint shops.

The problem with shopping in most towns and cities is the sameness that globalization involves.. The think I like about tombland is that it is old school both in the buildings and in the fact that many of the stores are one off's. Daytime its good for shopping and at night it has quite a few restaurants and bars well... More

Felt like we walked for miles around the lanes in the Tombland area... Glad I had my walking boots on, as so many historical sites to see. :)
