A Tea, Coffee & Cake Tour


This perky little tour will take you through the history of Norwich while you sip.
With the range of high quality & quirky tea & coffee places in Norwich this has been a difficult tour to design, but I've selected some of the best for you to savour.
From quiet hidden courtyards to the smallest coffee shop in Norfolk.
We will wander through alleys that twist past some of the best Tudor houses in the country.

Itinerary

This tour will start at Norwich Castle Museum. Here I will give you an overview of this fine city from the high mound the Norman Keep sits on.
From here we will travel through the ornate splendour of the Royal Arcade to the market & our first sip of a refreshing drink.
I will then lead you down one of the many historic alleyways that radiate from the market, with a tasting along the way, to one of the best tea & coffee retailers in East Anglia. A short stop here for you to savour the floor to ceiling boxes & heady aromas of fresh beans. We will head from here to Elm Hill & sample a tea with cake in one of its Tudor houses.
This leads us towards our final area of Fye Bridge Street before returning to the castle via Tombland.
You can customise this tour to end with an Afternoon or Cream Tea in one of the cities exquisite & atmospheric places. Contact for more details.
