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 didn't go in, but the views from the outside were amazing. This church it is located in front of the forum. Architecture lovers will enjoy in this city.

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.

The Church had some very interesting features, mostly 18th/19th Century, the Rereros was particularly interesting and provocative. Would recommend to visit Thomas Browne statue nearby also.

More impressive from the outside perhaps, but well worth a visit if you are in the City. A very large parish church with helpful staff who are keen to ensure you enjoy your visit. That makes up for the Victorian restoration which gives it a rather severe atmosphere.
