Norwich Cathedral

As mentioned earlier, after just completed my first year at uni, I realized how little of that time I have actually spent discovering this city I am studying in, both it’s history and attractions. It was about time then that I went and visited (together with Luke and David) Norwich’s most famous attraction: Norwich Cathedral. This 900 year old building is definitely a must if you happen to visit Norwich! It was absolutely awesome (in the right sense of the word). It is a cathedral church for the Church of England with a Gothic and Norman architectural style. The building itself is 140 metres long with a spire of 96 metres, making it the largest building in Norwich (pretty much seen from anywhere in Norwich).

At the moment there is a peregrine nesting on the top of the spire, and you can follow it live on a certain website, as they have placed a little camera up there to follow it’s movement! Something a bit different perhaps. Mum, I’m sure Dad would be particularly interested in checking out the link! 😀
