We were on a Christmas shopping trip when we noticed the twinkling trees within St Peters,signalling the first day of the Charity Christmas tree festival. Unfortunately I only saw half of it as I fell in the church. I'd like to say that the kindness from one individual called David (church guide) was much appreciated. He walked with myself and...

Visited here on a family visit to Norwich, just exploring with a well informed relative who suggested looking into the church and a good thing too. I don't find religious uplifts from churches but they are undoubtedly interesting for the architecture, decoration and especially their history and this example is very fine. Lots of tombs and memorials to the local... More

I spent some time wandering around The Forum and MArketplace before taking refuge in here. This church is exceptional for its decoration, stained glass and especially the font and wooden surround. Do not miss the ancient tapestry and bell ringers charter next to the font - both of which are behind curtains.

I like visiting places of worship and when we were dropped off near to this church I could not resist. It is so light and airy with lovely pews to sit and reflect in.

If there is only one place to be visited in Norwich, make sure it is this medieval gem of a church. There is so much of interest inside from stunning stained glass windows, a rare 15th Century font cover, magnificent wall memorials and intriguing ledgers, a display of silver & pewter mugs - and more. Take it steadily and soak... More

Do donate your 30p and pick up the small pamphlet offered. The descriptions of the church are delightful and even convey a bit of British humor ( or should I say humour). For instance" On the right hand of the tapestry you may see Mary Magdalene greeting Our Lord who is depicted ( somewhat too literally) wearing a gardener's hat."... More
