Norwich Day Trip Report

Just back from a day trip to Norwich. Drove to Harford park and ride and caught bus to city centre which cost £4.00 return for my husband and me. Followed the Festive Heritage Trail which we down loaded from the Visit Norwich site. This was a great self guide walk that took us around all the main sights of Norwich and took about two hours. This was our first trip to Norwich and we were pleasantly surprised by how much there is to see. There is a good selection of shops and the city looked very festive.

We had morning coffee in the Kitchen at Marks and Spencer - their mince pie with brandy cream was delicious. We ate lunch at the Iron House (reviewed separately) which was excellent.

Norwich is certainly worth a visit.

Glad you enjoyed it. If you visit again, try Caley's in the Guildhall (very old building on one side of the central market) for a morning coffee - or better still, hot chocolate with a tot of rum!

I'm not sure whether for effectiveness you''d have been better driving in, as that park and ride service can get so packed, sometimes you might find yourself waiting for a few buses to get back, and with some decent car parking charges I berlieve around the park and ride is really better for people who want to spend the day in norwich.

Also, for people with mobility problems, don't bother with it, although low floor it's just a pickle for someone like myself it's not worh the hassle and I think concessionary psss holders are now charged, but oddly possibly due to my type of pass etc I've never been yet.
