Tours of our Great Market by Paul Dickson |

The Great Market Guided Tour

A 1½ hour guided tour in and around Norwich Market, celebrating 940 years of buying and selling at the heart of the city. The tour includes a cup of tea at Birchley’s Loose Leaf Tea.

The tour looks at the impact of the Normans; the growth of the Medieval Market and the Paston Letters; the great church of St Peter Mancroft; the role of the Tollhouse and later the Guildhall; the market as a place of execution and entertainment; the long lost Market Cross; the coaching era, the inns and the diaries of Parson Woodforde; pubs, banking and the Victorian era; shoemaking and the story of Start-Rite; the building of City Hall and redevelopment of the market in the 1930s and 21st century changes.
