A gem

I like visiting places of worship and when we were dropped off near to this church I could not resist. It is so light and airy with lovely pews to sit and reflect in.

If there is only one place to be visited in Norwich, make sure it is this medieval gem of a church. There is so much of interest inside from stunning stained glass windows, a rare 15th Century font cover, magnificent wall memorials and intriguing ledgers, a display of silver & pewter mugs - and more. Take it steadily and soak... More

Do donate your 30p and pick up the small pamphlet offered. The descriptions of the church are delightful and even convey a bit of British humor ( or should I say humour). For instance" On the right hand of the tapestry you may see Mary Magdalene greeting Our Lord who is depicted ( somewhat too literally) wearing a gardener's hat."... More

Popped into this beautiful church after shopping in Norwich. What a monument to the faith and craftsmanship of all those stone masons , woodworkers etc. If you feel you can spare a few moments from todays hustle and bustle, go inside, sit down, and who knows what good will follow?

Bang centre in Norwich city centre; adjacent to the market, next to the Forum library; this church is the the most impressive after Norwich Cathedral. Beautifully cavernous, historic, atmospheric and strangely hollow. This is somewhere I usually visit when in the city to escape the noisy hustle and bustle immediately outside. A rare oasis. Although not a particularly religious person,... More

We visited here many years ago, but I had forgotten what a lovely church this is. The outside is the local flint stone, and the church is adjacent to the central market. The interior is light and bright, with large windows, many of which are clear. However the front and rear windows are beautiful, and there is a detailed front... More

This is a lovely peaceful place in the city for quiet reflection, meditation, prayer, or reading. It's nice to have a break from the rush of the city.
