PRACTICALITIES

Please note that on this tour, some of the sites visited will contain uneven flooring, steps, ramps and dimly lit interiors. Our hotel, the Maids Head, is one of the oldest and most characterful in Norwich. Accordingly, it does contain some areas of uneven flooring as well as several staircases, although some of the rooms are accessible by lift.

 


 

GENTLER TOUR

Churches of Norfolk is now one in a series of more gently paced tours, ideal for those who prefer a more laid-back, less physically demanding itinerary while enjoying the same high level of academic content. Walking and travelling distances are typically shorter, and time is dedicated to the gradual appreciation of, and explorations within, our immediate surroundings. Hotels will usually be situated in central locations to allow for ease of access to major amenities.
