Travelling to the Cathedral

Norwich Cathedral is easily accessible on foot, by car and public transport.

On foot

The Cathedral is located in Tombland, just off Queen Street. Grey directional signposts are located throughout the city centre and maps are also available at various locations.

Public transport

By train – Norwich Train Station is located approximately 10 minutes’ walk away.

By bus - A bus stop is located in Tombland, directly outside the Cathedral gates, with services running approximately every 20 minutes.

By car

Upon arriving in Norwich, the Cathedral is clearly signposted by brown tourist signs. If using a sat-nav please use postcode 'NR1 4DH, The Close'.


On-site parking is not available (see parking policy), but numerous car parks are within a short walking distance of the Cathedral. View a map of nearby car parks here

We recommend using the St Helens Wharf car park, located off Palace Street on St Martin-At-Palace Plain, which is approximately a 5 minute walk from the Cathedral. Norwich is also served by a number of park and ride services

Limited disabled parking is available for vehicles with a blue badge and permits are issued by the Gatekeeper on a first first-come, first-served basis. A space is also provided at the south door for a minibus carrying disabled passengers.
