You can make it a circle walk if you want to, it takes you past the old dock houses near maderlane st. Or you can left at the bridge which then takes you tombland . It is well worth the walk

Don't rush it. Stroll. Meander. This part of the city has changed so much during the past 50 years, and the grubby, disused, disintegrating warehouses, etc. on the waterfront have been replaced with smart townhouses along the river. In places there are weeping willows. I think it's best to start by Pulls Ferry and walk round to the St. Benedicts... More

A nice little area along the water that has some nice new shops and restaurants. Went here at night and felt very safe walking the streets even in areas that were scarcely populated. Check it out if you are looking for a good walk.

Visited Norwich a few times but have never done this walk before. Very pretty, great views of Norwich Cathedral, plenty of places to stop and sit and enjoy the scenery. There is a great tree by Cow Tower with an interesting 'bird hotel.'

This could be a lot better. So drab and depressing in winter with mud and litter everywhere. Why don't the council plant bulbs for the spring.

I grew up in Norwich so know the river well, but when I was young it was transformed by the construction of the river walk. All along are some of the most well known sights but from this viewpoint you see how the river was the whole reason Norwich was here. Watch out for Cow Tower, the mortuary, Bishop Bridge,... More

I often walk this, nearly daily. So much scenery and architecture and a bit of history to absorb. Provides a feeling of escape in nice contrast to a busy city, but very close to the centre. It is easy to plan some loop walks taking in the Cathedral, or as much of the river as you want. Just do it.

Meandering along the river, this walk goes past some fine medieval and post medieval buildings. Also close to nice restaurants, bars and other sights worth seeing. And there is always (a very small) chance of an otter swimming past
