“Norwich Historic Cow Tower”
Review of Cow Tower

Cow Tower
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Went to Norwich to see some of the fantastic historic places this City has,one of which was the Cow Tower. Whilst it was interesting and had some good history points as far as safeguarding the City was concerned, it was a case of a quick walk round the outside,look through grilles to see the inside and that was that. If you go to Norwich make sure you go to the Castle instead.

Just a ruin in a park next to the river. Norwich is filled with historical buildings and monuments but this is hardly worthy of mentioning much less endorsement in my eyes!

The Cow Tower is an interesting relic from Norwich's past when the city's boundaries were carefully watched and the Cow Tower was one of the fortifications used in that defence, watching over the river and horizons.

Now it is a shelled out ruin which has been preserved for people to see on walks along this stretch of the river. There is not much to see; the insides of the tower are long ago although you can get a sense of what the tower would have been like looking inside. Compared to the other attractions of the city, the tower is not worth coming to see by itself but certainly worthwhile seeing if you are taking a walk along the river or if you are near the catherdral and it will add another bit of knowledge of the history of Norwich to you on your visit.

Walked along the river path and after 5 min the children were bored and wanted a trip down the river. Unless you like empty ruins then this is a miss.
