“Another "must see"in Norwich”
Review of Elm Hill

Elm Hill
Ranked #10 of 149 things to do in Norwich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 3, 2013

This historic area is a definite must see.

There are numerous shops, galleries and a couple of tea rooms.

Its difficult to walk on the cobblestones, so be prepared for that, however, its a wonderful walk and quite beautiful.

Thank Khunant

Experience Norwich as it used to be. Enjoy the surroundings but do wear sensible footwear and be prepared to look up as you walk along .

A very quaint and quiet corner of he city which from Bank Plain is on a natural circuit to the Cathedral. There is a very good but very bijou restaurant on the top corner but not easy access for wheelchairs. It is a pity that Elm Hill is not better signposted and it is quite normal to see an artist at work by the tree painting the view, and do not miss the Teddy bear shop which is perfect foyle for the setting. Some of the shops are small on account of the buildings in use 'so duck or grouse' but do not forget your camera. The nearest multi storey is St Andrews but from there you will need a map but head for St Andrews Hall and then go up the hill a bit and then left onto a cobbled street. There is a very samll car park at the bottom by the river but it is almost always full and turning is a problem but if you are naff at Hill starts , go for St Andrews it is much easier.

This part of Norwich has a real medieval feel with its cobbled streets and small shops. It has a wonderful atmosphere, gives you the impression that you travelled back in time to an era with a gentler pace and when small independent shops rather than chains were the norm. The teddy bear shop, simply called the Bear Shop, in particular is really worth a visit as they have an incredible choice of artists teddy bears as well as the usual big brands.
