On a glorious spring afternoon what could be nicer than a lovely stroll along the river. Such a pleasure with friends.

Hi csboulet, If you Google "Norwich riverside walk map", the first result that comes up should be a site called Griffmonster's Great Walks — it has a description of the walk and landmarks along the way, as well as maps in... More
Where do you start the river walk ? We would like to take my mother who is terminally ill and in a wheel chair and we would ideally would like to take her before she is bed bound.

You can park either near the Adam & Eve pub behind the cathedral or you can probably park at the Red LIon pub on Bishopsgate. Hope you can make it there, lovely at the moment with the daffodils out.
