If you come to visit Norwich as a tourist, then Elm Hill is one of the must see sights for its unique cobbled streets. It was the setting for a famous Monty Python sketch filmed here here in 1969, with John Cleese playing Mozart, Graham Chapman as his wife/housekeeper, and Michael Palin as the rat catcher. Not a street to... More

Walked along this street on our way to the Cathedral. It certainly has an atmosphere should one walk when it is not busy. There are some interesting shops one of which we went into selling all sorts of antiques, cigarette and post cards, coins and medals , dolls etc. So all in all, it;s well worth a visit.

Elm Hill was saved from demolition in the 20th century. The street has plentiful old buildings and is very close to the city centre. It's well worth a visit, even for a local like myself.

We happened upon this little street by accident - but I agree with the statement that it is probably one of the best original cobbled streets in England. Worth a visit.

A beautifully untouched street hidden a short walk from the cathedral. Quaint old cobbled street but beware as it was slippery on a dry day so I hate to think how it would be when wet. Specialist shops, antiques, and tea rooms line the street. A local tourist guide volunteer suggested we visit here and I'm so glad I initially... More
