Norwich Break – back in the cyber world

Standard

Norwich is a very old city in Norfolk with a beautiful Cathedral, a castle and a lovely towncentre with a market.

We had a house close to the citycentre to our disposal and discovered Norwich by foot daily.

We found a beautiful little garden ‘Plantation Garden‘ also called the Secret garden which was built at the site of a Chalk Quarry. Henry Trevor shaped the garden in 1855. It is an oasis for tranquility, we loved it every day!

Norwich Cathedral

In the Cathedral there was Dippy, the famous skeleton of the Diplodocus which is usually in London in the Natural History Museum. He is on tour and currently in Norwich.

It was very impressive.

Norwich has plenty of churches, we discovered though that many are not for worship. We found an art centre in a church, a bookshop with coffee shop and one was full of antiques for sale.

Norwich is a University city too, the – some cobbled- streets a lovely, the market beautiful and the little narrow lanes in between have old houses with quirky shops.

We have been in Norwich before (2017) and saw the Castle , blog post here


We bought some plants as a souvenir for the garden.
Let us find magic in all the little things in life.

  1. What a beautiful place this must be! I suppose Danny did not have to bring his Winter fur, this time. Thank you for sharing the impressions of garden and cathedral. During our time in Ireland I came across the concept of church buildings being used for other purposes than worship, too. They are beautiful spaces, after all!
    Oh, and the new members of your garden community! What a beautiful way to bring home some holiday feeling. I bet they enjoy their new place!

    • Yes, my new garden members love it, it is nice to bring something home other than the typical fridgemagnet. 🙂 Thanks for your lovely comment Steffi, Norwich is really a lovely little city.

Love to hear from you......
