The city

Norwich is a compact Medieval city built on a river, running over with stories. Small enough to walk around on foot, while still offering the vibrancy and variety of a large metropolitan city.

From the winding Tudor streets of Elm Hill, to the peaceful Cathedral Close and through to the bustling Market, alive with bright colours and delicious smells, this vibrant and beautiful city is the beating heart of the east of England. Whether you're travelling hundreds of miles to be with us or are just around the corner, Norwich is a city where there is always another secret to uncover.
