Tour to shine spotlight on Norwich’s architecture

The spotlight will be shone on some of the architects behind some of Norwich's most unique buildings next month, with a special walking tour.

The tour, to mark the national Love Architecture Festival 2012, has been organised by Norwich City Council's Tourist Information Centre (TIC).

The Norwich walking tour, which will be on offer on three dates next month, will focus on the talents of Thomas Ivory, Thomas Boardman and George Skipper who created some of the finest buildings in Norwich for their wealthy clients.

Their work throughout the 19th and 20th centuries includes: the Assembly House in Theatre Street, the Octagon Chapel in Colegate, the old Norfolk and Norwich Hospital and the Art Nouveau Royal Arcade.

The 90-minute architecture walking tour will be held on Saturday, June 16 at 11am, Wednesday, June 20 at 2pm, and Saturday, June 23 at 11am.
