Norwich's Nooks & Crannies

Lockdown may be in force, but you can still go out, exercise and see the beautiful sights of Norwich!

A world of hidden passageways has been pushed into the limelight with the publication of a new walking route called ‘Norwich’s nooks & crannies’.

Composed of three short walks, the route takes people on a journey of discovery through many of the city’s historic alleys, courts and lanes. Each walk is peppered with stories, some of which go back centuries.

Each walk starts and finishes in the market place and takes a meandering journey around the city centre in a series of loops without ever crossing the same point twice.

Split into three walks of 2.2 miles, 1.5 miles and 2 miles, the entire map details 50 passageways and covers a total of 5.7 miles.

The furthest compass points will take people to a section of Magdalen Street to the north, Tombland to the east, King Street to the south and close to Grapes Hill in the west of the city.

The illustrated booklet gives easy-to-follow directions and features up to 17 points of interest on each walk – many of which are accompanied by stories that illustrate pieces of Norwich’s rich history.

In order to comply with lockdown rules you can only go on these walk alone, with people in your household/support bubble, or with one other person whilst maintaining social distance.
