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.

We ate a great Tapas meal at La Tasca and enjoyed the outdoor atmosphere in the sunshine. The whole area is buzzing and not as expensive as you would think.

Tombland sounds as if it should be the local neighbourhood on a slasher movie. In Norwich the area sits just outside the Cathedral gardens and is the place to find a good number of the 365 pubs reckoned to be in the city. Pleasant spot for a stroll and a glass of something cold - busy spot after dark.

By the time we'd arrive here, it became just another "bit of the past" There was some road contractors working around and that took the fun away of what we were there for!!, hay, we enjyed the place, but didn't get the best of what we wanted to do!! Worth a visit, when it's not got contractors working.

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
