On a summers evening come on down and enjoy the people watching, enjoy a meal and a nice relaxing drink away from the bustling crowds. There's plenty of choice down in Tombland you wont be disappointed. Enjoy.

Tombland is an area of Norwich full of history. The architecture spans back hundreds of years and you will find the main entrance to the Cathedral in this area. There are also a multitude of bars and restaurants to try, I'm not naming any by name as they are all great.

When walking around Norwich you will definitely come across The Tombland district. It is well a worth a stroll around this area taking in the very old with the very new. The architecture in this area is a very mixed assortment so have your camera at the ready.
