Norwich Cathedral

The Close Norwich NR1 4EH

In a county known for the number and magnificence of its medieval churches, you’d expect something pretty special from Norwich cathedral. And this uplifting structure truly delivers – right in the centre of Norwich, its prickly spire poking high into the sky above the immaculate lawns of Cathedral Close, and with a breathtaking interior of mighty pillars rising up to exquisite fan vaulting. Originally a Norman structure, and with the round-arched arcades typical of the period, it was built in the late eleventh-century here's a wealth of features, including the best preserved and largest medieval cloisters in England, medieval roof carvings and graffiti, and a treasury with a superb collection of silver. Don't miss the excellent cathedral café either, and the precincts beyond, which stretch down to the river at Pulls Ferry, and encompass a marvellous medieval herb garden and even a Japanese garden.
