Full description
In Medieval times Norwich was one of the greatest cities in England. Now dominated by its 12th century Cathedral and Castle, built by the Normans with stone imported from France. The Castle is the County's principle museum. The historic Norwich Anglican Cathedral is well worth a visit. The church, which stands proudly on the city’s skyline, has always been greatly loved by the people of Norfolk and was recently voted Norfolk’s favourite building. Visit the shop, library, catch an organ recital or attend one of the church’s regular events. You will be enchanted by Elm Hill’s famous, cobbled medieval street which is home to a number of speciality shops and cafes. Norwich is now one of the top five shopping destinations in the United Kingdom. Hop off at Theatre Street for Norwich Market and The Forum by Jarrold (Norwich’s flagship, independent department store), for the very best art and gifts of the Eastern region. Castle Meadow offers The Mall and Colman’s Shop & Museum. The stops along the route are as follows: 1. Castle Meadow  2. Cleveland Road  3. Theatre Street  4. Castle Meadow West Side  5. Tombland  6. Britannia Road  7. Riverside Road  8. King Street

Great tour of the city with a very friendly driver. We missed the first stop as the meeting point given by the app was incorrect. We weren’t alone! Another couple were equally confused and you couldn’t see the actual bus stop because it was a lot further up the street around a bend. When we hopped on in the afternoon after a lunch break the tape had stopped working so no commentary. Overall we enjoyed the day and would do it again!

Brilliant Tour! I have lived in Norwich all my life and learnt so much today...…..more than I did in any History lesson. It was fun, enjoyable. We were very lucky we had the weather on our side so everyone was smiling on the bus. The Driver was lovely and very helpful. Well organised. Thank you and we will definitely be doing another. I have spread the word at work and now they all want to go.

This was an excellent HopOn HopOff experience. The driver was extremely helpful & supportive as we only had a short time due to rail delays getting to Norwich. We got on and off at Stop 8 right outside the Railway Station which was great. The recorded commentary was the clearest voice and sound system we’ve experienced without an actual guide. The city has so much history that we were unaware of, we were so pleased we got to take this excursion.
