Starting at one of Norwich's most historic buildings you will travel from Georgian splendor, through the stamp of Norman power on to the early beginnings of Saxon Norwich.

Eating and drinking some of the finest and traditional Norfolk produce as we travel.

We will start the tour in the Georgian splendour of the Assembly Rooms on Theatre Street, before traveling across to the modern front of the Forum. Here you will see one of the first examples of our many churches.
From there we will walk to the Norman Market Place and sample at least one or two local items here.
Our tour will then continue through the alleys to St Andrews Hall, down the picturesque Elm Hill (used in a number of films) before we visit our last 3 areas, including one of the finest Under Crofts in the country, the hostelry the Black Prince stayed in, the Saxon Market and splendid Cathedral.
