Discover a part of Norwich that is seldom seen…

We’re delighted to announce that we have now reopened and have a limited number of dates available for our Castle Meadow ‘hidden street’ tour.

To maintain customer safety and to comply with current Government guidelines we have adapted the tour to ensure social distancing.

Tours will be temporarily limited to two households (minimum of 2 people per household) and we can only accommodate a maximum of 8 people.

Castle Meadow ‘hidden street’- now reopen

A fascinating tour of the historic ‘hiddens street’ and undercroft lying beneath the KindaKafe.

Come join our tour, led by a local storyteller and historian. Journey with us down two flights of stairs to explore the layers of architecture dating from the 15th century.

Hidden below Castle Meadow, between the market and the Norman Keep, you can discover the past of our Fine City, with its trades, houses and people. Ponder the myths of eerie prison cells, hidden streets and curious tunnels. Come help us unlock the many mysteries of this space…

This tour is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible as it involves two flights of stairs and uneven flooring. 


Tombland – currently closed

Explore Tombland and discover the rich history of our fine City.

Join historian and storyteller Sarah Walker on a guided tour of Tombland organised by KindaKafe, home of Norwich’s famous Hidden History Tours.

See Norwich’s history of Romans, rioters and rebels, priors, friars and preachers come to life. Tales, true accounts and local legends all from the ancient centre of the fine city of Norwich.

This 90 minute walking, standing and sitting tour leads you around the Tombland area. Suitable for all ages and wheelchair accessible. Dogs welcomed.
