New works of art and architecture

New works of art and architecture

Norwich Cathedral is no museum but a living place. We continue to commission new works.

For over 900 years the awesome beauty of this Norman building has reached out and touched people, speaking to them of God’s glory and his love for each one of them. The Cathedral’s architecture is justly famous, its history fascinating and its collection of art and objects outstanding. The Cathedral deserves its five star rating as a tourist attraction, but this is no museum.
