Explore the Highlights of Norwich with a rental car

Centuries of history are visible in each corner of Norwich. The old city is famous for its beautiful old gateways, winding streets, and stunning architecture.

You can start your journey around the city from the Norwich Cathedral, which boasts a 315-foot spire, visible from afar. Interestingly, it is the highest church spire in the whole country. The building represents Norman architectural style. Its most prominent features include the Monk’s Door and the Prior’s Door. After paying a visit to the cathedral, you can head towards Tombland, to which many refer as the “gateway to the city.” In the past, it housed a Saxon marketplace. Today, tourists can admire its beautifully decorated gates – Erpingham, dating back to 1420, and St Ethelbert’s, erected in 1272.

A stone’s throw from Tombland, you will find Elm Hill. This charming cobbled street will lead you to the River Wensum. Along the way, tourists can look at the old tenement houses and shops. Not far from Elm Hill, there is Bridewell Museum, housing an extensive collection of exhibits dedicated to the history of industry and handicrafts in Norfolk. The collection even features a stunning silk shawl, which was once owned by Queen Victoria.

In the city centre, tourists will have a great opportunity to explore venues such as Strangers’ Hall, which is a merchant’s house from the Middle Ages, Suckling House, an old townhouse, St Peter Hungate, offering an insight into religious art, as well as Theatre Royal, Norwich Puppet Theatre, and Maddermarket Theatre.
