You'll visit important Medieval and Tudor sites. You'll also discover a few hidden gems and hear some fascinating stories. You play the part of a 16th-century 'Stranger', who has just arrived in the city. 

During this walk you can imagine what it must have been like for them. We recommend doing this walk in daylight, between 7:30 and 16:30 when all the cathedral gates are open.

  • Find out how the Strangers helped shape Norwich into what it is today


It is the year 1580. You've just arrived from the Low Countries to work in Norwich as a weaver. They call your folk The Strangers, but most locals are welcoming. 

Your friends, fellow Strangers, have sent you an address where you'll find safe lodgings. Before you get there, you want to visit a number of important locations on the way, and register with the authorities. You will also need to solve some challenges at each point.
