A lovely street with some really fantastic little shops. But be ready to walk on some very uncomfortable cobbles; the pavements are very narrow so walking in the cobbled road is often the only option. Having said that, it's worth it for some of the...More

Lovely old cobbled Street with unique bear shop, book stores and tea rooms. Really feels like taking a step back in time.

A rare treat, to walk along a medieval street with so many old building and such fascinating history, especially if you manage to catch some of the commentary from a knowledgeable guide.

Worth an amble down this hill to view some ancient buildings, last elm tree long gone, unfortunately.

Every time we visit Norwich we always have enough time to walk down the hill towards the Cathedral but take care the old cobbles are very uneven.

A charming old street largely unspoilt. In days gone by when I worked for the BBC I can imagine we might have used it as a film location. It's not that steep ("Very flat, Norfolk!" as someone once said) and there are some seats under...More

Elm Hill has smooth pavements but they are extremely narrow, probably too narrow for a wheelchair, but the riverside path is only just behind Elm Hill and would be wide enough and suitable for a wheelchair.
