Old Norwich - Inns

Adam and Eve public house

Norwich, it is said, once had an inn for every day of the year and a church for every Sunday. Nowadays there are still many delightful inns, such as the Red Lion in St George's Street (sadly, now closed) and the Sir Garnet Wolseley, a fascinating mixture of styles, in the Market Place. The Adam and Eve (left) in Bishopgate, built on the site of a medieval inn, was the last to sell beer from the wood. The Maid's Head, now a hotel, was mentioned as early as 1472. The inn yard survives and the hotel has been restored in Tudor style.







Did you know... Norwich was granted city status in 1194.
