Uncover Norwich’s history through bricks and mortar

Norwich, Norfolk

Norwich is bursting with vibrant museums, national treasures and one of the best English castles; Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery, situated in its city centre.

Get ‘under the skin’ of the city by taking a guided ‘City of Centuries’ walking tour from Norwich’s Millennium building, The Forum, a spectacular structure with glass atrium to Norwich Cathedral, one of the finest examples of Romanesque architecture in Europe boasting over 1000 roof bosses.Down every cobbled street, through every welcoming door and behind every rippling pane of glass in every glowing window, there’s a story to be discovered.

Norwich is also England’s only UNESCO City of Literature, an accolade bestowed upon the city in 2012 in recognition of the city’s literary pedigree. Norwich has spawned numerous literary greats, including Julian of Norwich who was the first woman to be published in the English language and Anna Sewell, who lived in Norwich and wrote bestseller Black Beauty.
