This historic ferry was used during the building of Norwich Cathedral. The stone came from France , up the river and was offloaded at the ferry. This route would not be possible today.

Pull's Ferry is depicted in many local paintings and photographs. It has not changed much throughout history and the informative plaques help to educate us about it's former uses. It is still picturesque and calming on a warm summer's night or a frosty morning!

An iconic and stunning place to visit and walk. So much history and death within the area. Ketts uprising, cells, morgue plus much more. One of the more iconic locations of Norwich

A great place to visit at any time of the year. Following the river trail leads you through some brilliant spots. Take a picnic on the bank. Wait for the heritage open days so you can visit inside.
