My Sunday Photo – March 18th, 2018.

Even though I have lived in Norwich for more than a decade, there is still so much I don’t know about the city.

For example, I had always assumed that Tombland was named for some macabre reason that was undoubtedly to do with death. I found out yesterday, while taking part in a free City of Centuries walking tour, run as part of English Tourism Week, that is not the case. In fact, our lovely guide, Paul, revealed it is from an old Scandinavian word meaning open space and was once the site of an Anglo-Saxon market place.

It was really enjoyable (although very, VERY cold) to wander the city with someone so knowledgeable. It also allowed me time to stop and actually look at the different buildings (and notice little details I hadn’t seen before) as well as hearing about their history. It wasn’t the best of days to take photos – not least because I couldn’t feel my fingers after a while.

There are several other free tours taking place in Norwich during English Tourism Week, which runs until March 24th. You can find out more here. I highly recommend them.

  1. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone, but I’ve never been to Norwich! This is a good thing though, as your photos and commentary are educating me. Love the image of the cobbles, they really caught my eye. And yes, I bet you were cold after that tour but I do love a good tour with a knowledgeable guide. Gives a hole new perspective on a location I find.

  2. Hi Tara, how funny, I would have thought the same as you. Norwich looks a lovely place to explore I particularly like the way the eye is drawn in your top photo. It makes me want to know what’s around the next bend!

    1. I almost said that I know a Boardman but I thought people might think I was showing off 🙂 I snapped that photo really quickly because I knew any second people and/or cars would arrive. And they did.
