The whole area is well worth seeing. Some lovely restaurants, cafes and individual shops there too, as well as the medieval sights.

If you come to Norwich you have to spend some time wandering around the historical streets. There is so much wonderful architecture and a lot of the buildings have explanations via blue plaques. Many of the buildings contain interesting shops and places to eat and drink. Elm Hill is unique. Don't miss the Cathedral Close and Ferry Lane either. A... More

Elm Hill and the surrounding area are called Tombland. Think Brighton Lanes without the tat and your close! Worth a wander around, various Antique shops, Cafe`s and even a Bear Shop! Wear decent shoes though, cobbles can kill the feet!

This is an historic precinct near to the cathedral at Norwich and well worth the time to wander the cobbled streets and look at the wide range of architecture in the area. You can stop and admire the Samson and Delilah building and also the Edith Cavell memorial. The walk is quite easy and generally flat so is suitable for... More

Tombland is a very fascinating location, lovely oldy worldy cobbled streets and shops. It really is a must for visitors to the City of Norwich and cost you nothing. Has a great Teddy Bear Shop too, but take some money they don't come cheap. Well worth a visit.

Another interesting walk through this area after the riverside walk. Lots of interesting architectural features on buildings, unusual shops, and a wide choice of restaurants.

Lucky to live very close to this part of historic Norwich. There is a wealth of history in this area, obviously the cathedral is a fabulous place to start but there are many other places of interest historically in quite a small area to explore with an excellent café culture to access as well. The only problem is that the... More
