Explore Norwich city centre with two self-guided heritage walks with a treasure hunt theme. Discover Norwich's "hidden treasures" whilst having a fun day out with family and friends!
Norwich is the most complete medieval city in England. There's England's largest and most colourful outdoor market, built under the controlling eye of the 11th century castle nearby. Shopping in The Lanes and beyond make it one of England's top 10 places to shop, and Elm Hill is a chocolate-box street often used by TV and film makers. Take a stroll round the cathedral and its grounds, discover beautifully architected buildings which abound, or simply sit in the shade of the many trees, sipping your drink.

1. Castle Circular - 1.5 miles / 2.4 kms
From the imposing castle, high on a hill, you initially explore some of Norwich’s more quirky shopping streets, before arriving at a colourful area, dominated by a unique English market. Pass through the elegant and stunning Royal Arcade and exit the city’s bustle to explore a characterful street, headed by a medieval church. Traverse a leafy churchyard and end your walk back at the foot of the famous Norwich Castle.

"Wonderful day out in Norwich! We'd not seen Elm Hill before, and it was a sheer delight - no wonder it's featured on TV and films so much. We found somewhere really nice to eat at the end too, so great design for a walk!"
