Attraction in Norwich
For more than 900 years the splendour and tranquility of Norwich Cathedral have attracted pilgrims and visitors. Founded in 1096 as part of a Benedictine Priory, the Cathedral boasts several superlatives. It stands as one of the finest complete Romanesque buildings in Europe, with the second largest spire and largest monastic cloisters in England. Our unrivalled collection of over 1,000 beautifully carved roof bosses are one of the great treasures of mediaeval art.
Tours and activities run all year for adults, schoolchildren and families. Free admission but donations are welcome.
