Interesting area to walk though en route to the cathedral. One of the many churches in the area, St George Tombland, is also in this part of the city.

One of the most beautiful parts of Norwich, leading up to the cathedral and down to Magdalen St with its amazing antique and vintage shops. Some reliably good restaurants.

You should definitely walk down Tombland if visiting Norwich. It is where many of the restaurants are located (The Edith Cavell, Prezzo, Zizzi, La Tasca, a Japanese) and leads to the excellent Cathedral. There is also a good second hand bookshop, bars and it leads onto the very pretty Elm Hill. Plus it has a great name!

Tombland is an area with lots of restaurants, pubs and shops. The buildings are aesthetically old and lovely. The river runs through, with a nice path to walk and there are museums and a cathedral to visit.

Would probably be lovely once all road works/pavement works complete and can walk along without criss crossing road!! Cathedral lit up at night is amazing a some nice restaurants seem to be down here. Elm Hill is off here too.

This is a beautiful part of the city with all the different sides to Norwich spiralling off from it. The cathedral, Elm Hill with its beautiful shops and all the nice restaurants and bars

I love love love Tombland - has everything you could wish for restaurant and pub-wise. Plus some of them have a fantastic view of the Cathedral - especially Just Lobsters if you get the window seat. A little treasure trove!

There is fine dinning and many different country restaurants to choose from, antique shops and coffee houses, lovely to sit out in the open area during the summer periods.

Tombland is one of my favourite places in Norwich because it really is like stepping back in time. Definitely make this a part of any trip to this fine city.
