This is an interesting and attractive street by the Cathedral, with numerous old buildings, many of which are pubs or restaurants. There are some shops of a crafty type, and a second hand book shop. On a Saturday night the area is popular and is near to the night spots on Prince of Wales Rd. Because of this the restaurants... More

This is very historic part of Norwich, but it seems to have lost its heart recently. It used to be busy and full of activities, but when I walked through it was totally dead. The whole atmosphere of the place is typified by the state of the toilets. They are closed, unused and their entrances are filled with disgusting litter.... More

Comes alive after dark. Plenty of bars, lots of places to eat, and plenty to see if you like people watching

Well worth a stroll - nothing to do with graves but where the Vikings landed/settled.A most interesting area.

After walking from the river through the Cathedral grounds, you stumble upon Tomblabd. So full of history, not only the buildings but the landmarks, statues and cobbled roads. Pretty in all seasons, in April the trees were starting to bud and were a welcome bright spring green amongst the pale grey buildings. Some wonderful buildings all with a story to... More

We came to Norwich for a shopping/leisure trip as I am on holiday from work, and we had to go through Tombland to get to Magdalen Street as there are 2 big antique/collectors centres there. Tombland is an interesting part of the city with many old buildings in pretty good state of repair (unlike Ipswich) with some unique shops -... More

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.
