Norwich Cathedral is a true icon of the city. The silhouette of the spire on our skyline is a living testament to Norwich’s rich history as well as the city’s wealth and importance during the Middle Ages.
Today, Norwich Cathedral remains a place of worship as well as a tourist attraction and cultural venue. Strolling through the medieval cloisters or beneath the vaulted ceiling of the nave feels like you’ve taken a step back in time. If 900 years of history seems overwhelming, free guided tours are offered daily and give a wonderful insight into this impressive institution. The Cathedral isn’t just beautiful to look at: there are plenty of concerts, plays, literary talks and family fun days taking place all-year-round.
Originally a Benedictine monastery; the monk’s key ethos of hospitality is shared today as the cathedral strives to welcome everyone… including the peregrine falcons roosting on the spire!
