Norwich Cathedral is one of the great medieval churches of England, begun in the late 11th century by Herbert de Losinga.
The cathedral close is one of the largest in Europe and has more people living within it than any other close.
The nave features a superb combination of Norman arcades and triforium with later 15th-century vaulting and carved bosses.
Beside the church are the medieval cloisters featuring wonderful carved and painted bosses.
Norwich’s beautiful cathedral is an actual screen regular. It has been featured in the Harry Potter films, transformed into a fantasy castle for the 2013 Fantasy ‘Jack the Giant Slayer,’ and appropriately artsy for ‘Tulip Fever’.
Norwich Cathedral has the second largest cloisters in England, only exceeded by those at Salisbury Cathedral. It has two storeys, the only example of its kind in England and nearly 400 carved stone ceiling bosses.
