GO Places in Norwich

Places to Go in Norwich Norwich may be a modern city but it is full of medieval architecture, ancient relics and a wide range of interesting places to visit.

Tourists will be amazed at the city’s array of flint-built medieval churches and the hugely famous 900-year-old Norwich Cathedral [map], which has 1,200 illustrative stone roof bosses depicting the bible story.

Not far from the here you’ll find the Cow Tower [map], a circular, detached brick tower that once formed part of the city’s 14th century defences.

For more mesmerising architecture head for Norwich Castle [map], whose current structure has stood in the city since the 12th century and is one of the finest displays of Norman craftsmenship in Europe.

Hidden for hundreds of years until it was uncovered during building work in the 1970s, Dragon Hall [map] is a 15th century merchants trading hall on King Street. It is said to be the only one of its kind to survive in Western Europe, and will amaze visitors with its unique crown post roof and intricately carved dragon.

If you’re looking for peace and tranquillity you’ll find it at Plantation Garden [map], a Victorian garden with a huge gothic fountain, flower beds, lawns and woodland walkways.

Alternatively, for something distinctly modern pay a visit to Norwich’s newest public building, The Forum [map], where you’ll find the Origins heritage centre, which explores the city’s development over 2000 years.
