A 2 hour guided walking tour, led by Paul Dickson, celebrating CJ Sansom's best-selling novel Tombland, featuring Tudor lawyer Matthew Shardlake's visit to Norwich at the time of Kett's Rebellion (1549).


The tour starts and finishes at the Maids Head Hotel and includes Tombland, the ancient Anglo-Scandinavian Market Place, Augustine Steward's House, Norwich Cathedral Close, Bishopgate (Holme Street in the novel) and the Great Hospital, Bishop's Bridge, the site of Bishop's Gate and Lollards Pit, followed by a climb up to Kett's Heights, the remains of St Michael's Chapel, with its fabulous view across the city.


The return journey follows the north side of the river with views of the medieval Cow Tower and surviving city walls, near the location of the Pockthorpe Gate, before crossing the river and passing the Adam and Eve pub, where Lord Sheffield was taken after he had been mortally wounded, and seeing the site of the Battle of Palace Plain.


The tour at Elm Hill, home to St Simon and St Jude's Church and returns to the Maids Head Hotel for coffee or tea and biscuits.


Ticket £8.50. Online booking: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/shardlakes-norwich-tickets-60699183893
