A truly beautiful, but steep walk, Elm Hill takes you back to a bygone era. We had a relaxing walk and window-shopped. Definitely recommend the "climb" up the hill - it's a treat. VISITED 2014
Back in the 1920s, this lane was due to be demolished and rebuilt. Some members of the council and visionary Norwich citizens fought this plan and succeeded in getting many of the old buildings preserved but with the less attractive structures beautifully renovated in the authentic original style
It's so lucky that a street like this has been preserved and it's well worth a visit. Take a camera to get some photos of the cobbled street and the beautiful, historic buildings. Anyone with walking difficulties may have trouble managing the cobbles. We visited on a coldish winter day and the street was virtually empty. I would imagine it... 更多
Cobbles and lovely old property's to see don't forget to see the Bear shop never seen so many .Peaceful to walk down and look at the colours of the buildings in the street.

A very popular street full of tourists (ourselves included)! Medieval frontages, quirky shops and nice restaurants make for a pleasant walk

Walked along this street on our way to the Cathedral. It certainly has an atmosphere should one walk when it is not busy. There are some interesting shops one of which we went into selling all sorts of antiques, cigarette and post cards, coins and medals , dolls etc. So all in all, it;s well worth a visit.
Elm Hill was saved from demolition in the 20th century. The street has plentiful old buildings and is very close to the city centre. It's well worth a visit, even for a local like myself.
