An interesting part of old Norwich... Have a look if you're passing or in town. Some really pretty buildings and fascinating history.

“Great part of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a wonderful place to look for a meal. There are restaurants to satisfy any taste. Our own favourite is the Shikki Japanese restaurant with great food at a reasonable price. Tombland is adjacent to Norwich Cathedral and affords easy access to the cathedral and its surrounds.

“"Quiet and Quaint"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Tombland as i understand is one of the oldest market places in Norwich, close by the Cathedral, we visited it on an warm summer evening for a quiet picturesque walk, with its quaint little buildings and cricket greens,near by is the grave of Edith Cavell the famous World War One nurse who helped soldiers from both sides only to be courtmartialed by the Germans in 1915.A brave lady. If you like history its a nice place to walk.Tombland market place hosts restaurants and pubs of different types and thereis even a bar /restaurant named after Edith Cavell. A nice place to take in the surroundings of the old city.
