Breakfast at The grass house, and then started our dragon hunt in my favourite part of Norwich and the first 2 dragons to the delight of my grandchildren. I love the history you can just stand and take in. Then walk into the Cathedral grounds

I always enjoy strolling through Tombland, as I did today with children and grandchildren. Cobbled areas, the cathedral and close, restaurants, Elm Hill... People, people, people, and also a dragon. This really is Norwich!

Nice area of Norwich but the on going roadworks are noisy and disruptive to local businesses. Had a nice cup of coffee and cake at Dotties cafe. Hope the roadworks are finished soon. Live the name Tombland!

Home to national restaurant chains, but links to older history - close to cathedral and worth a visit.

When visiting I found the entire area is one mass of roadworks, which appear to be firmly ensconced for most of 2015 if the signs are correct. In fact most of Norwich appears to be such at this time and it was a nightmare to navigate around. I would imagine without these it is a nice place but for this... More

Tombland is opposite Norwich Cathedral and offers a great choice of different restaurants and bars to try. I love to see the old buildings with all the different architecture.Look out for the building with the 2 lions (now red) outside. This building used to be called 'Samson and Hercules' and was a nightclub.When they renovated it, I believe they actually... More

A part of the city that blends the new with the old and in a pretty good way too. There are plenty of modern eateries down here which can be busy both during the day but moreso at night. Best summed up as an area with plenty of character both in the surrounds and from the buildings themselves.

Lots of old lanes off the main area. Cathedral well worth visiting. A listen to the ghost story teller, gives you a real feeling for the history behind the area. A few bars and eating places available..

The heart of Norwich, a lovely, ancient area of the city, with bookshops, pleasing pubs and restaurants, the olde worlde Maids head Hotel, and the 2 arches which give access to the wonderful cathedral.

I love Tombland for its historical architecture and some great restaurants. Really lovely in the evening as you can sit outside with a drink and people watch. Not far from the Cathedral too.
