The city is one of the most complete medieval cities in the United Kingdom. Well known for cobbled streets such as Elm Hill and Tombland, ancient buildings such as St Andrew's Hall, the Art Nouveau of the 1899 Royal Arcade and many medieval lanes still showing their Tudor character to this day.
The Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell was originally a merchant’s house in 1345 and later became the Bridewell, a ‘house of correction’ for women and vagrants. Today, as a museum, it tells the story of the city and its people. They exhibit information on local industries from the textile trade, shoes, chocolate and most famously – Colman’s mustard.
