If the Top Ten UK Shopping, local sporting facilities like the Snow Sports Club, Frost Bite Sailing or a Trip with The Canoe Man on the River Wensum or Norfolk Broads doesn’t grab you, perhaps the stunning range of Historic Buildings open to the public in Norwich will!
Norwich 12 is a collection of what are rumoured to be the best Heritage Buildings in the UK. Follow the link to their website to find lots more information on Norwich Castle, The Two Norwich Cathedrals (yes, two), the original home of Norwich Union: Surrey House, where a tour can be taken and if you ask nicely a quick peek at the Board Room which is amazing, The Assembly House. St Jame’s Mill. The Forum next to City Hall is a modern glass fronted masterpiece located right behind Norwich open air market. The Halls – St Andrews and Blackfriars, The Guildhall, and not forgetting Dragon Hall right here on King Street.
Norwich Historic Church Trust, based on King Street is responsible for the up keep of 36 local medieval churches, see the map here, No 36 the ruin of St Peter Southgate can be found virtually opposite 106 The Malt House.
When we nip off on a holiday or break, we like to create a bucket list, the holiday usually evolves around that. Slipping in cake, soup or a glass of wine in places found along the way. If you were to follow the map of the churches, you would never be far from a ‘good excuse’ to stop and soak up the atmosphere, they are all within Norwich city centre and for most guests all are walkable distance.
