Discover a part of Norwich that is seldom seen…

Castle Meadow

A fascinating tour of the historic basement 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…

Castle Meadow tours generally run during the day and evening on  Mondays and Tuesdays (excluding school holidays) and one weekend a month. Please note that this is subject to change.

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



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.
