Award-winning writers guide you through the UNESCO City of Literature
We invite you to walk with the writers who were born or drawn here, to experience their Norwich and discover the layers of stories embedded in the city. You can pick up a free print edition from independent bookshops around the city, while stocks last. This online version of Walking Norwich includes special bonus walks written by our writers in residence.
Norwich is a city of unexpected paths waiting to be discovered and we want to know your favourite walks. If you have a walk to share please do click the button below.
