Norfolk has been named one of the top counties for exploring England’s historic churches.

In analysis of 2,000 churches across 77 counties, it came out on top in two categories including the best place for exploring stunning church interiors and also the top for learning more about social history.

Bettany Hughes, Vice President of The National Churches Trust, which runs the explorechurches.org website, said: “Our analysis will help tourists and visitors discover the amazing heritage of churches and chapels.

“We hope it will encourage more people to become passionate about these tremendous buildings packed with memories of human life often dating back over 1,000 years.

“As well as signposting the best architecture, stained glass, and history, our data also includes information on visitor facilities, which allows us to suggest which churches are ‘five star’ attractions.

“Our study shows that churches and chapels offer a tremendous range of unique experiences for visitors.”
