We took advantage of "The Old City Walking Tour". Our guide was informative, amusing, and passionate about her beautiful City. The cobbled streets, crooked houses, old pubs, numerous churches and fascinating historical facts made this a most enjoyable tour. We were somewhat time restricted and will need to do it again to allow time for more photographs and absorption of... More

A truly beautiful, but steep walk, Elm Hill takes you back to a bygone era. We had a relaxing walk and window-shopped. Definitely recommend the "climb" up the hill - it's a treat. VISITED 2014

Back in the 1920s, this lane was due to be demolished and rebuilt. Some members of the council and visionary Norwich citizens fought this plan and succeeded in getting many of the old buildings preserved but with the less attractive structures beautifully renovated in the authentic original style

It's so lucky that a street like this has been preserved and it's well worth a visit. Take a camera to get some photos of the cobbled street and the beautiful, historic buildings. Anyone with walking difficulties may have trouble managing the cobbles. We visited on a coldish winter day and the street was virtually empty. I would imagine it... More

Hi All Elm Hill in Norwich is a must for visitors. I have lived in Norwich for more years than I wish to mention and I still get the feeling of the olden days when walking round here. The buildings are quaint and I understand Lovejoy had an episode down here as well as other snippets on TV. You can... More

A very popular street full of tourists (ourselves included)! Medieval frontages, quirky shops and nice restaurants make for a pleasant walk

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
