Norwich Lanes are a ‘must visit’ when taking a short break or holiday in Norwich.
Walking distance from 106 The Malt House, the Lanes are a series of ancient ‘alleyways’ and mainly pedestrianized streets that host a mass of independent shops, cafe’s, restaurants and businesses. The place is quirky, trendy, smart and historic, rich in architecture and atmosphere.
Take the direct route from 106 along King Street straight up to Tombland and Elm Hill or a more laid back amble along the River Wensum, through Norwich Cathedral Quarter and past the Cathedral on into Tombland.
If you take it easy, a day won’t be enough to really get to know the area, Norwich Castle & Cathedral on the outer edges. Elm Hill which is one of the most ancient streets in the country, and offers medieval homes and buildings, the whole area has one of the most complete medieval street grids in the UK. St Giles Street, Upper St Giles, Pottergate, Cowgate, St Benedict’s and heaps more…
Our website is full of references to businesses we love in Norwich Lanes, but do see their own website for lots more, eg culture & theatre, cinema, shopping & super smart barbers shops & the brand new boutique for men Working Title Clothing, that opens for the first time tomorrow Sunday 17th April and will be serving the locally roasted Greyseal Coffee, exactly the same as in your welcome pack at 106.
Time can be spent in Norwich Lanes any time of day, with Frank’s Bar in Bedford Street not shutting it’s doors until between 12.30 and 2.30am most days!
