Walk down and through Elm Hill and you are in a different time. The cooble street and over hanging buildings take you back to medieval times. The half timbered buildings are superbly preserved and the shops there offer all manner of unique gifts

This street is cosy and cute. It is cobbled lane with many buildings dating back to the Tudor period. When you walk around you can feel like travelling to the past!

A very pretty part of Norwich with lots of interesting quirky shops and tea shops. The cobblestone streets didn't bother us as some have said they would! Norwich itself is a beautiful city with lots to see and do

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.
