Norwich is a historic city well known throughout the United Kingdom for its medieval history and architecture. The city walls, the ancient buildings, the Norman Cathedral and the 12th century castle are examples of why Norwich is one of a kind.
Dragon Hall is a trading hall built in about 1430. This combination of warehouse and showroom is a unique inheritance of medieval daily life and is one of the most essential buildings of the city. Even though the edifice has a rich historic past, it is still in use today. For this coming Christmas, Dragon Hall is hosting a new Christmas market, and will provide guests with gourmet dinners in these unusual surroundings until December 21th. The Norman Cathedral has stood for 900 years in Norwich’s landscape. This wonderful construction has recently been awarded the title of Norfolk’s favourite building. By visiting it, you can really understand why. The Historic Christmas Fayre will take place at the Cathedral from December 11th to 13th. Costumed minstrels, historical interpreters and entertainers will welcome you. They will be performing and demonstrating a selection of instruments and tunes, as well as dances and tales from the past. Merchants will also put on display a wide variety of unique gifts and hand made goods, replica artefacts from the last 2000 years, everything from Roman mosaics to rope. Enjoy the atmosphere with a mulled wine, and other culinary delights.The Norwich Ice Sculpture Trail is held every year in Norwich.
