Details

Curious About Norwich visits not just the obvious places, but some unusual ones too, with hidden treasures to discover. Suitable for all ages, the walks take 1-2 hours each, and are wheelchair and buggy friendly. Each 16 page booklet contains two walks, a brief history of Norwich, a detailed map with two walking routes marked on, and a series of directions and clues (Hints as to where to find the answer, and the answers can be found towards the end of the booklet). You’ll also find ideas for things to see on the way, pictures to identify & some interesting snippets about the people & events that have shaped Norwich.
Walk 1: Castle Circular (1.5 miles)
From the imposing castle, high on a hill, you initially explore some of Norwich’s more quirky shopping streets, before arriving at a colourful area, dominated by a unique English market. Pass through the elegant and stunning Royal Arcade and exit the city’s bustle to explore a characterful street, headed by a medieval church. Traverse a leafy churchyard and end your walk back at the foot of the famous Norwich Castle.
Walk 2: Castle to Cathedral (1 mile)
From the castle discover some of Norwich’s most striking streets. Bridewell Alley, renowned for its museum, housed in a former prison for women and beggars. Princes Street, with its magnificent Halls dating back to the 14th century. The delightfully quaint Elm Hill, frequently used as a film set for TV and movie productions. Finally, arrive at the grounds of the cathedral, whose awesome beauty has reached out to all who visit, for over 900 years.
