Norwich Guildhall and it's proud history

Norwich Guildhall full of history!
If you know your history you will realise the importance and power of Norwich Guildhall standing proudly in the City Centre. Dating back to the Fifteenth Century after the Charter of Incorporation was granted to Norwich by King Henry IV.

As you look across the marketplace you are amazed at the chequered squares of flint that gives the building such a dignified look. The castellations around the roof are like it's crowning glory.

The Assembly Chamber is where the full medieval Council used to meet. Some know it as the Sword Room with storage for weapons in the room. Have you breath taken away as your eyes are taken in by the oak panelling and stunning stained glass of the Council Chamber. The Undercroft is where dangerous criminals were held going back to medieval times.

It's time to visit Caley's for a pot of tea and a cream cake. relaxing my mind and body with friends in vintage clothes taking in all the history of Norwich Guildhall.
