Norwich Cathedral Herb Garden

Back in the warmer days of September while nearby I had the pleasure of visiting the Norwich Cathedral Herb Garden. It is the garden of a fine georgian house nestled below the towering cathedral spire in between the Upper and Lower Closes. 

It is a lovely oasis of calm and tranquility in the bustling city and a has a fine collection of herbs. Some are famliar but others less so and all are nicely labelled with a variety of attractive labels. There is also an interpretive notice board explaining the old english uses for the plants. The fine Medlar tree is a particular personal favourite.

I would thoroughly recommend a visit if your in the area next summer watching the famous cathedral Peregrines or just as somewhere to sit with a coffee.
