after visiting the local cathedral and castle this green area made the perfect stop off for a break and a picnic. Toilets are on site and today they also had an ice cream van in attendance.

I had a wander around whist visiting the castle.. Nice enough but nothing special.. Would not go out of my way to visit the place... May be in summer it may be a bit pleasanter.

I walked through the castle gardens as part of a general city meander today. I haven't done this before, but incorporated a stroll through these gardens. It's February, and so it was relatively quiet. The sun was shining, and it certainly was not deserted. Why...More

The castle green is a nice little spot next to Norwich Castle, perfect for stopping off for a light pic. There is a small childrens adventure playground but it is in the city centre and near roads and above the mall shopping centre so it...More
