With the second cup of Strong English Breakfast Tea now being supped, I’m pondering over suggestions for our guests for things to do and see in Norwich now that Summer is officially here, Yay!!
Once guests are settled at 106, then may be a good time to ‘get your bearings’ to ‘know’ where you are and a little about the city of Norwich.
With this in mind, siteseeing tours are a good starting point for a Norwich City Break. They are inexpensive and there are a good variety to choose from both privately operated and TIC Centre arranged. All can be found on Tripadvisor.
