I travelled here to visit a college friend who I hadn’t seen for about 15 years. I had forgotten what a beautiful and interesting city it is.

We were able to spend a long time in the cathedral which is magnificent. Having bought the handbook I discovered it is 900 years old and is one of the largest English cathedrals. We enjoyed visiting the herb garden, the library and of course the refectory.

Having been to one of the oldest buildings in the city, we then went to one of the newest, the Forum. As well as a number of cafes, it houses a fine library and BBC Norfolk studios.

I only wish I had had longer to samples all the delights of this East Anglican city.
