 Walk 1: Castle Circular
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.

Castle to Cathedral
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.

Curious About Norwich passes numerous pubs, bars, restaurants, shops and cafes. On the first walk, All Saints church off Westlegate has been converted into an excellent tea and coffee shop. On the second walk, the cathedral has a restaurant, coffee shop and gift shop, and the grounds are perfect for a picnic.
