The Close

The Close is a 44 acre haven surrounding the Cathedral, containing more than 80 listed buildings. Simply put, it’s a little piece of heaven on a sunny day, so we highly recommend making time for a walk and a picnic!

The upper end of The Close is a large green space stretching along the west front of the Cathedral. It features a number of buildings occupied by the Norwich School and local businesses.

In the lower end of The Close you’ll find quaint Georgian properties overlooking a large green, which have provided a backdrop for period dramas in the past. From here you’ll also be able to connect with winding lanes that lead down towards one of Norwich’s most picturesque spots, Pulls Ferry, and the wonderful Riverside Walk.
