Building on rich heritage

The city’s history is also written on the skyline for all to see, from the proud cathedral spire to the imposing Castle Keep.

Take a short walk along the tow path and you will find the beautiful and iconic redbrick Grade I listed St James Mill. The nearby Norwich Puppet Theatre; housed in a listed 15th century church is also just a short stroll away. This melding of industry and creative passions is characteristic of Norwich; a city filled with artisans and entrepreneurs.
Delve into St James Quay’s past to discover a rich history of manufacturing, Jarrold’s print, publishing, and bookselling accomplishments all played a crucial part in Norwich’s sterling global reputation.

Riverside living at its finest

Enjoy the peace of the River Wensum, named from the Anglo-Saxon word for winding. Follow the thread of this beautiful waterway through the centre of Norwich. The riverside walk is peaceful, traffic-free, and offers you a uniquely idyllic journey across to the train station, or into the centre of Norwich.
The Wensum brims with wildlife. Peek behind the weeping willows to discover otters, swans, kingfishers, and maybe even a seal who’s travelled in from the coast for a freshwater snack! With such thriving natural wonders, it’s no surprise that the Wensum is the most protected river in Europe, as both a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and a Special Area of Conservation.
