Guided tours

Battlements experience

Climb the 62 steps of the Norman staircase and enjoy a 360-degree canvas of uninterrupted views high above Norwich.

See the sites associated with Robert Kett’s 16th century rebellion, a fight for the rights of Norfolk’s poor that ended with Kett being hung in chains from these battlements until he died from hunger and cold.

Observe local landmarks such as the Norman cathedral, St Peter Mancroft church, the market and The Forum as never before.
