Off the beaten track, but well worth seeking out. This internationally known centre of prayer - largely rebuilt after being bombed during the war in 1943. Beautifully kept and retains its prayerful atmosphere. Open every day with many pilgrim groups visiting.

The shrine was interesting and has a rich backstory connected with a fascinating religious feminist. What's more, the Julian Centre next door has some of the sweetest, most helpful and intelligent workers ever. We went in there, they offered us free Tea and treats, sat...More

This is a small church and cell but well worth a visit. Julian of Norwich was incarcerated here by her own will. She experienced visions and was a mystic. The shrine has such a spiritual atmosphere.

This is my third or fourth visit to St Julian's, and the adjacent Julian Centre. Julian of Norwich was a most interesting woman and her writings are of great relevance to us today. To sit quietly in the shrine and feel the love of God...More

I travelled to Norwich by train from London to see this simple shrine to and experience the serenity I've felt in St Julian's writings and had a lovely, peaceful afternoon. The little chapel is very quaint and there is a feeling one gets just sitting...More

Reading about St Julian and others like her (yes, her) who became hermits (more or less) hundreds of years ago is a real eye-opener. We had the benefit of a lovely lady who came down the hill from the Visitor's Centre and talked to our...More

We came across St Julian's Church by chance and how glad we were. Small but most welcoming with plenty of information and history, all in a great state of repair. The adjoining cell gives a sense of inner peace as we lit a candle. So...More

This had a calm atmosphere. There's not a lot to see but you can just sit in the rebuilt chapel and reflect on an extraordinary life. There's a religious bookshop attached.

It is a very small church and a small room where Julian of Norwich lived. This is a very peaceful place not far from the city centre.
