Norwich, “A Fine City”, is steeped in history. An excellent shopping centre with many department stores and small shops to browse in.

The Cathedral and The Castle dominate the skyline according to where you are in the city. The Cathedral is reached via Tombland and the Castle is a short walk away in Castle Meadow. Pull’s Ferry along the river frontage is one of the most photographed areas and there are walks alongside the river. In season there are boat trips from the Pull’s Ferry area down the river. To see one of the older areas of the city find Elm Hill with its cobble stone streets.

The Castle was built by the Normans as Royal Palace 900 years ago. It is open for visitors and is home of the Castle Museum and art gallery, with a vast range of exhibits to suit young and old. To discover more of the history and development of Norwich visit the Bridewell Museum in Bridewell Alley, not far from Tombland. The Royal Norfolk Regimental Museum and Stranger’s Hall are two other places that may be of interest. Dragon Hall in King Street built 1430.
