Day Trips to Norwich

Take a delightful day trip to the historic city of Norwich, easily accessible from Gladwins Farm. Norfolk has plenty going for it and not just the beautiful Norfolk broads or the iconic coastline, but at the heart of the county is the beautiful city of Norwich.

River Wensum

The first absolute must for Norwich is to experience a peaceful trip down the River Wensum. You can experience the sites of the city whilst relaxing on the cushions on the traditional punt as you move peacefully through the water.

 

Elm Hill

A captivating experience. It is without a doubt one of the city’s biggest attractions. Obscure shops and small cafes are surrounded by Tudor, timber-framed buildings along an authentic medieval cobbled street.

 

Colman’s Mustard Shop & Museum

It doesn’t matter if you aren’t even a fan of mustard, this is a place that’s definitely worth a visit while you’re in the city. Colman’s has a heritage in Norfolk over 200 years old and today you can discover its history at the shop and museum housed in the Royal Arcade.

 

Biddy’s Tea Room

If you fancy a refreshing cup of tea on your day out be sure to visit Biddy’s Tea Room. As well as a traditional tearoom offering tea in beautiful china cups and saucers, you are surrounded by bunting, armchairs and many choices of cake.

 

Sainsbury Centre

If you’re an art lover be sure to visit the Sainsbury Centre in the grounds of the University of East Anglia which is located in the acres of countryside near the river. It features modern art originally donated by Lord and Lady Sainsbury, even including the works of Pablo Picasso.

 

The Old Skating Rink Gallery

Created 30 years ago near The Forum and marketplace to showcase Asian-influenced art. You can find decorative furnishing and clothes tailored to many tastes from Turkey and the East of Java. It also houses the South Asian Decorative Arts and Crafts Collection.

 

Plantation Garden

The three-acre Grade II English Heritage registered garden is one of Norwich’s greatest gems. There you can find large gothic fountains, lawns, flower beds, Italianate terrace, woodland walkways, 10 metre long Victorian-style greenhouse, a rustic bridge and a Medieval terrace wall.
