The city of Norwich, with its fascinating heritage is a rich tapestry of meandering alleys with an abundance of architectural jewels. The magnificent cathedral and imposing Norman castle stand proud amongst the crooked half-timbered buildings and quiet cobbled lanes. The thriving market in the city centre and array of independent shops and eateries, combined with popular high street stores, makes Norwich a popular shopping destination.
Located on the Cromer Road, a short distance from the centre of Sheringham, Priory Maze and Gardens is set within 10 acres, with various themed gardens and a hedge maze. Beautiful gardens and diverse planting have created the perfect habitat for a wide range of mammals, birds, and insects. Discover their resident pheasants, woodcock, snipe, kingfisher and goldcrest, as well as many other regulars and maybe even spot waxwings, firecrest, crossbills and tree creepers.
Norwich is a beautiful city, steeped in history, dating back over 2,000 years. The central streets still follow their medieval course outlined by what remains of the ancient city walls. Norwich is dominated by its magnificent Cathedral and Medieval Castle. The city’s newest public building, The Forum, is also an impressive landmark, situated in the heart of the city centre, offering information and entertainment.
