A circular walk around the city of Norwich in Norfolk. The first half of the walk follows the banks of the River Wensum, criss-crossing back and forth via the numerous bridges - the oldest dating back to around 1340 and the newest having only been built in 2012. The return leg takes you through the centre of the ancient city itself, and you'll have glimpses of the old city walls, the castle and the numerous churches as well as an opportunity for some retail therapy should you wish! The city walk is one of the most varied we know, with a true mix of ancient historical buildings, industrial heritage and modern architecture. The walk follows mainly well made paths and pavements. There are no stiles or gates but several flights of steps. There are a few steady climbs/descents plus one fairly steep climb about half way round. Some of the access is through parks, the gates for which are locked at dusk. Approximate time 2.5 to 3 hours.
