We have lived in Norfolk all our lives but never visited the Guildhall. We had a lovely guy who gave us the tour. Very knowledgeable and informative. We have a gem of a building on our doorstep. Thoroughly recommend this 90 min tour

Externally a solid looking , historic building that once you enter is equally as charming. The years unravel from floor to floor giving a great indication of some of the events that may hav3 unfolded here.

This is a wonderful building set in the centre of Norwich just by the Open Market area. Pop in and have a look around when it is open, you will be delighted that you did.

This Guildhall -- which I discovered while partaking in a historic walking tour of the city -- was constructed to enable the greater self-governing powers conferred upon Norwich by the Charter of 1404 to be administered more efficiently.
