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.

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
