    How lovely to find a cathedral which is free to enter - unlike Canterbury and York, we could have had a free guided tour if we wished. A beautiful cathedral, enhanced even more by someone practicing on the organ. We were so impressed with our whole visit. Nice cafe too if you want it and good toilet facilities.

    We called in on the way from Wells next the Sea to our next stop at Walcott.

    There is ample parking and we were able to get somewhere to park the motorhome.

    The cafe is dog friendly and there are many walks around the estate where they are welcomed except the house and walled garden.

    Didn't go in the house at all.

    Best value £20 we spent all holiday (£10 per person) We took an hours trip on this solar boat with a fantastic guide Mark. First time seeing beautiful kingfishers in a peaceful setting, no engine noise to spoil the tranquility.
    Mark was an amazing guide with a great sense of humour. Would definitely do this trip again.

    Elm Hill is a quaint, historic street.
    There are buildings from the Tudor period. It is a popular street for film makers.

    When I was planning my trip, I was a bit disappointed to learn that the keep is currently undergoing major renovation work and is therefore closed. But since the museum is open, I decided to visit anyway, as it was my first time in Norwich.
    Finding the entrance proved a bit challenging, as I was walking halfway around the hill and then back again - only to realise after my visit that had I walked just about 50 metres further, there would have been another entrance, so I could have saved myself the long walk. Given that the museum is extensive, with lots of treasures to see, my feet would probably have thanked me for that...
    And yes, there is a LOT to see: From paintings to archaeology to stuffed wild animals - it's vast! I hadn't been expecting that.
    The individually themed areas all have their individual entrance, but are also interconnected, which can be rather confusing, because if you don't pay attention, then you're suddenly stepping from the gallery zone with paintings to the Roman history zone... In fact, several times I got lost and had to retrace my steps, as I felt that I was missing out on some areas. Maybe it would help to assist visitors with better signposting to indicate the general recommended flow.
    Apart from that, I did like what I saw, especially the large number of paintings!
    In the end, I just about managed to get around all the areas by the time I heard the announcement of the closing time.
    I would certainly love to be back after the re-opening of the castle itself, hopefully also with a proper souvenir shop, as the museum shop was rather disappointing.
    But overall I did enjoy my time in the museum and believe it's well worth a visit!

    The ticket we purchased for the Norwich Museum also allowed us entry to the Bridewell Museum. The museum was originally a prison and “house” of correction, but has now been changed into a museum of local history. The museum was well laid out over two floors and tracks the rise of industry in Norwich. There is lots to see and read about and well worth a visit.

    Lovely area to walk alongside the river passing some interesting buildings. We had never seen so many swans in one area at the same time. A few boats moored to the bank some in need of repair.
