- A wonderful building with a history going back 900 years. The free tour, conducted by Fay, was fascinating and informative.
Well worth a visit for everyone.Written January 26, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- What a truly wonderful place to visit, I took my 11-year-old son one Sunday morning in October the weather was beautiful and the gardens were absolutely amazing. Entry price is very reasonable and we spent a good two hours looking around the gardens plus having Tea and cake in the tea rooms. Could have taken 100 photographs whilst here as around every corner what’s the most amazing scene. Would highly recommend and can’t wait to return in the springWritten October 15, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We visited Felbrigg when the house was decorated for Christmas - no charge for members. We were lucky enough to catch one of the introductory talks - it was fabulous - so informative and interesting - I really wished I had caught the name of the woman who led the talk. The hall itself was lovely and beautifully done - I particularly enjoyed being able to relate to each of the rooms and their collections as a result of the introduction.Written December 28, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Hired a boat ( skipper) from broom boats and there level of service was second to none, it wasn’t overly busy but it can be a struggle finding a mooring sometimes must be a nightmare in high season, some of the pubs we ate in the food was good but the pubs themselves could do with some refurbishment. The place is beautiful and you get to see a lot of wildlife (top tip bring binoculars ) and enjoy life at a slower pace, we sailed on the southern broads this time and it was thoroughly enjoyable.Written October 10, 2022
- spotted this place on a website called tripadvisor. being a bit of a completist, i had to come and see it while in Norwich and will work through more 'things to do' on further visits.
used satnav and found it easily. drove past it and parked 200 yards or so past it and walked back to it.
a good old honesty box was there and we paid the suggested admission.
the gardens arent large and this is not a long visit for people like us with other places ro visit in the area but for locals its a lovely little hideaway and a couple of families were picnicking and there were other people just relaxing and chatting in the tranquility of the gardens.
we walked around, took a few nice pics and were on our way. we really liked it. the photos show how nice it is. worth a visit if its your sort of thingWritten November 19, 2022
- Elm Hill is a blast from the past. Furthermore it links the shopping area with the river area in a very picturesque way. On the right hand side as you go down there is a taxidermist's shop tucked away to add spice (not for squeamish). I just loved the whole experience. Plenty of pubs at the other end if you need a target to head for. Good for atmospheric photos.Written December 2, 2022
- We didn’t take a formal tour but did walk along parts of the river during our visit to the city. Lots of really interesting old buildings & bridges to look at & photograph. A nice way to traverse your way through some of the oldest parts of Norwich.Written January 25, 2023
- I was on a break and travelled into Norwich by car. Next to the Airport I noticed the sign for this Museum and decided to visit this on the way back to our hotel.
The exhibits at the museum exceeded my expectations. the indor had fullsize engines plus memorabilia of aircraft and their exploits . The outdoor contained actual aircraft of various sizes ranging from a Nimrod to light aircraft. The cost of £5 to pensioners was well worth the money. Itis slightly dearer in the summer and also for younger adults. There is a cafe on site as well as a shop. I highly recommend a visit.Written November 23, 2022
- Favourite part was seeing the Otter and all the kingfishers ,my nephew Harry and myself thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it,the staff are so friendly and helpful.Written November 1, 2022
- When I was planning my trip, I was a bit disappointed to learn that the keep is currently undergoing major renovation work and is therefore closed. But since the museum is open, I decided to visit anyway, as it was my first time in Norwich.
Finding the entrance proved a bit challenging, as I was walking halfway around the hill and then back again - only to realise after my visit that had I walked just about 50 metres further, there would have been another entrance, so I could have saved myself the long walk. Given that the museum is extensive, with lots of treasures to see, my feet would probably have thanked me for that...
And yes, there is a LOT to see: From paintings to archaeology to stuffed wild animals - it's vast! I hadn't been expecting that.
The individually themed areas all have their individual entrance, but are also interconnected, which can be rather confusing, because if you don't pay attention, then you're suddenly stepping from the gallery zone with paintings to the Roman history zone... In fact, several times I got lost and had to retrace my steps, as I felt that I was missing out on some areas. Maybe it would help to assist visitors with better signposting to indicate the general recommended flow.
Apart from that, I did like what I saw, especially the large number of paintings!
In the end, I just about managed to get around all the areas by the time I heard the announcement of the closing time.
I would certainly love to be back after the re-opening of the castle itself, hopefully also with a proper souvenir shop, as the museum shop was rather disappointing.
But overall I did enjoy my time in the museum and believe it's well worth a visit!Written June 9, 2022
- Superb situation and Norman Foster building. The permanent collection is stunning and eclectic, including well known sculptors and some new work which is strong. Great restaurant with good lunch options and vast picture window onto trees and a Henry Moore. As an ex teacher was delighted to see young people in and learning. As a wheelchair user can report is totally accessible. Could not recommend highly enough.Written January 17, 2023
- Delightful visit. Very entertaining, winemaker doing the tour full of passion and pride and great sense of humour. Delicious wines and you leave the place understanding fully the difference between fine wines and the rest and purchasing a case of their liquid gems. Highly recommend!Written September 11, 2022
- Nice modernish theatre, big stage. Stalls seats were comfortable with great legroom and view. Nice bar, reasonably priced drinks, parking directly opposite, all in all a nice experience. Would visit again.Written January 28, 2023
- A very interesting museum located in the city centre telling the history of Norwich. There are plenty of things to see detailing all the trades that existed in the city from the Wool Trade up to the present day with Colmans Mustard and Boulton and Paul covered as well. There is a recreation of a 19th Century Pharmacy and a Pub from early 20th century. Plenty of artefacts to see and everything is very well explained. The museum also covers sport and leisure in the city with exhibits about Norwich City Football club and the defunct Norwich Stars Speedway team that existed in the 1950's and 60's. It also explains the history of the building with it being a former prison. Definitely worth seeing if you are in the city.Written January 12, 2023
- I love a stroll around Eaton Park.
I always look forward to popping into the cafe and purchasing a bacon roll…..which are the best I have ever tasted!Written January 18, 2023
