The Cathedral was built over 900 years ago in the centre of Norwich and is still standing proud. You can see it from on many parts of Norwich because it has the highest Norman tower (40 metres) and largest monastic cloisters in England! A must from a visit is viewing the east part of the Cathedral which has four chapels with paintings and ornaments from 14th to 16th century.It also boosts the largest Cathedral Close and monastic Cloisters in the land
The grave of Edith Cavell can be found outside of the east end of the cathedral. She is celebrated for saving the lives of soldiers from both sides without discrimination and in helping some 200 soldiers escape from German-occupied Belgium during the First World War to neutral Holland. She was betrayed and arrested, before being executed at 7.00am on Tuesday 12th October 1915.
