This is a small church and cell but well worth a visit. Julian of Norwich was incarcerated here by her own will. She experienced visions and was a mystic. The shrine has such a spiritual atmosphere.

Reading about St Julian and others like her (yes, her) who became hermits (more or less) hundreds of years ago is a real eye-opener. We had the benefit of a lovely lady who came down the hill from the Visitor's Centre and talked to our...More

This had a calm atmosphere. There's not a lot to see but you can just sit in the rebuilt chapel and reflect on an extraordinary life. There's a religious bookshop attached.

It is a very small church and a small room where Julian of Norwich lived. This is a very peaceful place not far from the city centre.

We visited St Julian's Shrine without knowing about the history of the place and felt quite emotional when we went inside. The place radiates tranquility and peacefulness. We enjoyed finding out about the Shrine and the life of St Julian.

Despite being a little bit far from the city centre, it is worth it. There it is where the first British woman writer decided to live and give advice to those who asked for it.
