Lovely old church, well worth a visit especially as it is centrally located in the City Centre. Beautifully maintained, spacious and a joy to the eye whether you have religious convictions or not, the architecture, symmetry and dimensions are superb.

When on a city tour this was a usual pop-in venue, but was closed to the public, so I went back later. Friendly welcome. Interesting interior and tapestry availble to be reviewed on request.

This beautiful and historic church is next to the market in the centre of Norwich. I enjoyed spending a few minutes looking at the architecture and stained glass windows whilst enjoying some quiet reflection
