See things your way
The beauty of Norwich is that a casual amble around the heart of the city will soon reveal many of our heritage attractions. There's also a great choice of guided tours on offer - whether on foot, by boat or by bus, each reveals another side to our fascinating local history.
Splendid City Guides are on hand to take you on walking tours of Norwich. These take place generally between Easter to October (however private tours can be arranged all year round) with a duration of around 90 minutes.
