Inside, the Cathedral tells almost 1000 years of history, with our enthusiastic volunteers on hand to talk you through the incredible stories of its past.There is more to see at Norwich Cathedral than you think. Our award-winning 21st century Refectory restaurant is open seven days a week, as is the Hostry which features a rolling programme of exhibitions, many of them featuring local artists.You can also experience the tranquillity of our expansive Library, Herb Garden or Japanese Garden, as well as guided tours of the building throughout the week.Afterwards, feel free to explore the lanes of the Cathedral Close, a quaint village just minutes from the bustling city centre, and stop for a picnic on one of our many well kept greens. Norwich Cathedral is a living centre for worship, learning and hospitality, extending a warm welcome to all our visitors from Norfolk and beyond.Part of the Norwich 12 - An initiative of Norwich Heritage, Economic & Regeneration Trust. less

The gardens at East Ruston Old Vicarage are one of the most exciting surprises in the county, who would expect to find a verdant, sheltered garden in the prairie landscape that is north east Norfolk? Enter the garden and you are worlds away from the local landscape for here there are many gardens within the whole including a new Walled Garden, Rose Garden, Woodland Garden, Mediterranean Garden and a stunning Desert inspired by the landscape of Arizona. These areas are connected by magical avenues and areas of informal planting with some places allowed to be wildlife friendly which includes a stunning Corn Field that contains the corn field weeds of yesteryear and has been known to move visitors to tears. Wild Flower meadows lead down to ponds full to bursting with the sights and sounds of nature giving way to rolling lawns all enclosed by tall sheltering trees and hedges for because of its coastal situation this is an inward looking garden. But, the views out are both stunning and amusing, a port hole cut in the hedge allows tantalizing glimpses of the Happisburgh lighthouse one mile away whilst other highlights are the views of both St. Mary's churches at East Ruston and Happisburgh. Overall there is a feeling that this garden is exceedingly well designed; there is incredible use of colour, an exuberance of planting making it a very special experience, this garden has that certain je nais se quoi that is sadly lacking in most modern gardens today. There is a well equipped tea room serving delicious locally produced refreshments and a nursery selling many of the rare and unusual plants found growing in the garden. less

RRH Neatishead supplies engineering support to the radar at Trimingham. When operations at RAF Neatishead moved into the underground bunker in 1995, the Operations Room was left intact and it eventually became the centre piece of the ADRM. The museum has expanded considerably since its inception and the most common observation of the visitors is that they wished they had scheduled more time for their visit. There is so much to see, including presentations on the part radar played in the Battle of Britain, night fighter operations, the history of radar, Space Defence and the Coltishall rooms. Now visitors can see the once Secret Cold War Operations Room and have its secrets explained in detail. Visitors are encouraged to participate in the guided tours during which the Volunteer Guides tell the story and add a personal touch to the experience. less
