Norwich Cathedral and the Close are well worth a visit. The Cathedral is tremendously impressive and staff/guides were very welcoming. Highly recommend setting aside a good hour to slowly walk around and appreciate the cloisters and also view the nesting peregrine falcons.

Very impressive Cathedral. Nice surroundings and pleasant helpful staff. Had a snack in the refectory and watched the nesting birds via a video link from the spire.
