This is the perfect second hand bookshop. Don't miss it, allow time for a good browse. Well-chosen stock, sensible prices, atmospheric location and building, and friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff. And they can courier the books to you, at remarkably reasonable prices, so you don't need to worry about the carrying home.

Named from the viking 'tomb' meaning 'empty' the area boasts a cathedral and a number of higher end restaurants and eateries. For those on a budget walk past the Maids Head hotel where you'll find the Citys 3rd 'Wetherspoons' The Glass House.

Just to say we spent a great hour and half doing a Tombland Murder Trail. This involved a group of all ages from young to over 60 and it gave a great focus to walking around the area and also taught us about the history of this part of Norwich.

I wandered around Norwich on a very wet Wednesday and found myself in the fascinating area of Tomblands. The architecture and buildings are well worth a look. Although not particularly religious myself I am interested in hsitory and popped into St Georges Tomblands church and was made very welcome by Canon Minns and some of his congregation who gave me...

Such a lovely part of Norwich a pleasure to stroll around on a warm summers evening full of history. It's a perfect photo call and the only down side is heavy traffic at times.

Very charming old street, a real hidden treasure in Norwich. There's just to much to do here though. There's a few restaurants and bars/pubs and you do have a the maids head hotel and the cathedral which is equatorial, but most people do use this street as a walk into the city as oppose to somewhere to go see.

Very pretty, lots of places to eat and drink. It has a nice feel to the area and you can tell that a night it can be very busy with the late bars and restuarants
