Any visit to Norwich must include walking in the Tombland area of the city, which is very close to Norwich cathedral. This part of Norwich has hardly changed in several hundred years and a walk down the ancient cobbled streets are well worth the time...More

Elem Hill and Waggon and Horses Lane are the most photograhed areas of the "fine city". Wear flat shoes, Elm Hills famous cobbles (now concreted firmly - back in the day they were loose..) are ankle killers to heel wearers! The shops are a delight,...More

You are walking in a street that looked the same in the time of Henry VIII. It's not Disneyland or yet another phoney castle, it's real. It has atmosphere aplenty. Some signs (not enough!) explain what you see. Lose yourself in history here.

We were really happy when we stumbled upon this quaint and pretty cobbled street early morning when no-one else was around. It felt like we could have been somewhere in rural France rather than Norwich and was a gem. Really worth the find.

The buildings here are ancient and amazingly are still in proper use today. The modern conveniences such as running water and electricity have been added but definitely do not deter from the old style look and decorum. While you are here, check out the open...More
