The Lower Close is located to the east and is made up of quaint Georgian properties overlooking a large green. This area includes many residential properties and winding lanes which lead to the beautiful Pulls Ferry and river front, perfect for relaxing or taking a peaceful walk.

As well as being a haven of tranquillity in the city, the Cathedral Close is used for various events, including the Norfolk & Norwich Festival and City College graduation.
