Walked from Anglia Square to the river, turned left and walked to the railway station alongside the river. Stunning views, flat most of the way and not as muddy as I thought it might be at this time of the year. If you do the...More

Perfect for dog walkers as well as any age group with some of the best ale pubs in Norwich on route.....start at the best of them all “The Red Lion” at Bishopsbridge and even take a picnic and/or a fishing rod 💚💛

The walk along the riverside in January was a peaceful retreat from the city. Was surprised to find daffodils in bloom and the snowdrops were very pretty. Good flat walk for all ages. Choose your route depending on how long you wish to walk for.

Definitely worth a stroll. Lovely, peaceful walk with interesting historical bits along the way. Plenty of bridges so you can cut the walk short but it's not very long anyway!

Riverside Walk (+ the whole path that extends all the way to the back of Norwich Cathedral) is a good place for morning walks, jogs, reflection/meditation moments, etc. Usually quite in the early mornings and early evenings :)

To walk along the riverbank and to approach the cathedral from the east end - passing the Great Hospital is a truly breathtaking vista. The Cathedral Close is a delight and one envies those who live within its confines. It shows how diverse Norwich is...More

Get behind the scenes and away from the traffic for an unusual view of this lovely city. There are pubs along the way so easy to make a pit stop as well. Recommended

Visted Norwich for the first time on a work trip. Really interesting centre and around the cathederal. Discoverd the river walk by accident but glad I did. Easy to follow and lots of historic information boards to read along the way.

You can park either near the Adam & Eve pub behind the cathedral or you can probably park at the Red LIon pub on Bishopsgate. Hope you can make it there, lovely at the moment with the daffodils out.
