My 1st visit so this self titled 'FINE CITY'. My fiancé has been a handful of times. The Elm Hill district was a lovely part of the city away from your chain shops. Freezing in February but we spent x3 hours meandering around the quaint streets. It was a Sunday but it felt like a Saturday tbh. About a quarter... More

Do not come to Norwich without seeing this beautiful lane. Although predominantly private buildings now this adds to the charm as it still looks great with its cobbles and pedestrian manner.

If you are visiting Norwich you walk down this lane. Visit the cathedral and the Castle. Then have some retail therapy.

I have lived in or near Norwich for decades, and never tire of strolling up, or down, Elm Hill. This narrow cobbled street with its olde worlde shops, and a few artisans, is absolutely enchanting. I used to take my children to the Britons Arms on a Saturday morning. Now I take grandchildren, if they are staying. If in Norwich,... More

This is Norwich's link to its medieval past. Worth a stroll night or day. A beautifully preserved street.

Elm Hill street is fascinating! While walking around, reading the round blue signs is a must, and if you have a tour guide, it'd be a great experience! The street and its structures have many hidden stories to tell!

Elm Hill is a time travel to the medieval age. The street line amazingly cobbled, the houses shops around. There’s a fantastic Teddy bear shop, with all kinds of those warming toys you can imagine. Even the trees seems to have stories to tell. We’ve been told from locals that some shooting of Harry Potter took place in Elm Hill.

This old cobbled street seems to have been remarkably unchanged through the ages. Well worth a stroll. Note also there are a couple of excellent shops for the 'arty' - an artisan jewellers half way down and one selling 'objects' by local artists at the top.

I have walked along Elm Hill several times and each time I feel so reminiscent of the old ways in Norwich as told in history books. The cobbled stone lane nestled a variey of shops and a nostalgic tearoom that is indeed a hidden gem. The little gift shop in the corner is a treat.

A very pleasant way to spend an hour or two. Various shops, a cafe or two and a cobbled street. It also has a river walk near and one of the oldest hotels 2 minutes away to stay or to have a lunch. One of Norwich cathedrals is also very near.
