Norwich is not only one of the most attractive cities in England, it is also one of the most historically significant, with a proud heritage dating all the way back to the Iceni. At the time of the Norman conquest, Norwich was the largest city in England after London and until the Industrial Revolution was the capital of the most populous county in the country.

Much of this rich and vibrant part is still in evidence today. Author Michael Chandler takes the reader on their very own A-Z tour around the town’s history, exploring the nooks and crannies, and along the way relating many a fascinating tale of the most interesting people and places. Fully illustrated with photographs from the past and present, this new A-Z guide to the town’s history will appeal to residents and visitors alike.
