Take your time to wander along the riverside it is a beautiful area. Some old bridges and buildings along route for you to investigate and photograph. If your lucky you may see some swans and coots too.

Takes you around the city and beyond. If you're up for a bike ride or a nice long walk you can continue on to a disused railway line, Marriotts Way, which will take you all the way in to the North Norfolk countryside. The walkway...More

We visited on a very sunny spring day and enjoyed a lovely Riverside walk. There’s a nice flat path to walk on. Lots of historical signs explaining what each of the points were. Would recommend as a different way to see Norwich.

Perfect for biking or walking to get away from shopping or the business. It's not a very long walk but I would recommend it.

This walk takes you on a history trail through Norwich's past, and takes you close to some brand new areas of development. There are some excellent hostelries along the way, should the walk become too much for you. It doesn't matter which season you choose,...More

Unusual for a busy city to possess such a quiet walk by the river, close by the rail station, cathedral and cricket ground, features include the medieval cow tower and the old ferry site, illustrating the history of this ancient settlement very well. Well worth...More

This is a pleasant walk that makes you feel in the countryside while being so close to the city centre. Unmissable trip in any season.

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.
