About the venue

At over 900 years old Norwich Cathedral is the most complete Norman Cathedral in England, and one of the  finest examples of Romanesque architecture in Europe.

Getting There

Entry into the Cathedral Close is via two gates at either end of Tombland.

Bus/Train Regular buses and trains run to Norwich from locations around Norfolk and from outside the county. The Cathedral is a 12 minute walk from Norwich Station and a 15 minute walk from Norwich Bus Station away. The nearest bus stops can be found on Castle Meadow.

Car If you are driving, limited parking is available in The Close to Blue Badge holders. Parking permits for disabled visitors are issued by the gatekeeper upon entry to The Close, for duration of two hours on a first-come first-served basis. The closest car park is St. Helen’s Wharf pay and display, which has Blue Badge parking spots available.


There is level access into the Cathedral through the South Door, as well as a ramp and lift to provide access via the West Door.

There is an accessible toilet on the lower level of the Refectory Café, which also includes baby changing facilities. This toilet is kept locked and can be accessed with a RADAR key.

  • Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

    2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts. Find out more about how you can support us, as an individual or as an organisation below.
