Art & Crafts

Norfolk, unlike the rest of Britain, never had an industrial heritage and as a consequence, has a wide variety of smaller artisans producing individual and distinctive products local to the area. Many of these workers showcase their skills, welcoming visitors and are perfectly happy to discuss their crafts with you and even take commissions. Wroxham Barns is a working craft centre where you can see all sorts of activities such as: stained glass, woodturning, pottery and a variety of demonstrations such as cider making.

There are plenty of art galleries to explore and for a touch of history, visit the Norwich Lanes. An olde Worlde part of Norwich full of narrow lanes and alleys, offering an abundance of little independent traders shops to explore. If you like drama, the Norwich Theatre Royal has plenty to offer all the family. Founded in 1730, it has a rich history, being totally destroyed by fire in 1934, playing host to an unexploded bomb in 1940 and celebrating its 250th anniversary in 2008.
