Nowadays, an excess of pubs have been transformed into shops or cafes and restaurants.

To balance things out, there are a large number of churches around the city in fact there are said to be more medieval churches here than anywhere in western Europe.
Plenty to sightsee on foot or aboard the open-topped city tourist bus, the Norwich cityscape is peppered with remnants of a wealthy medieval past. The streets are generally narrow and cobbled and there are patches of weathered medieval walls at many a twist and turn. When stunning architecture is required, the castle satisfies many as well as other impressive examples of medieval buildings exist such as the Guildhall which dating back to the fifteenth century. Unfortunately due to the bombing of World War Two, a number of older Norwich buildings were destroyed. Luckily, despite the best efforts of the German Luftwaffe, Norwich managed to hold onto a generous smattering of really handsome buildings.
Norwich Castle is a significant attraction around town fronted by the Castle Museum and Art Gallery. One of the oldest non-religious buildings in the country, the castle dates back as far as the twelfth century. The Museum offers something to suit all the family, in particular its paintings from the famous nineteenth century regional painters group, the Norwich School.
