Norwich Cathedral

Take a free guided tour with the family and learn about how the Cathedral survived riot, war, plague and fire, a dramatic and engaging history which children as well as adults find enthralling. Tours depart from the rear of the Nave on the hour between 11am and 3pm Monday to Saturday, lasting one hour.

Norwich Cathedral also plays host to many reverent and impressive music concerts and recitals throughout the year and welcomes visiting choirs from all over the world.

There are several trails which lead around the grounds and buildings and help provide educational links between features as well as giving kids a sense of progress made as you find the points on the map!

There are Peregrines who nest up in the cathedral, and there is now an observation point manned by expert volunteers from the Hawk and Owl Trust so you can get a decent look at them! It is available to visitors between the hours of 10am and 5pm during April and June only, as that's when they visit!

You don't need to be of a particular faith or indeed of any at all to enjoy a visit here: kids will be enthralled by the striking artwork and the curious environment.

Wonderful atmosphere

4 star Rating 4 / 5

This place has such a wonderful atmosphere for kids: the natural hush and calm combined with the awe of size and artistry means kids are naturally quieter and more receptive to the wonders on hand than they tend to be in museums and galleries. We are not religious at all but had a warm and un-intrusive welcome that extended throughout the cloisters, font and herb garden, all of which were well worth a look! - Angie & Family 2016
