Decorated buses are spreading the word about Dippy the dinosaur's visit to Norwich Cathedral across the city.

First Eastern Counties buses can currently be seen on routes across Norwich city centre decorated with Dippy the dinosaur, with one with Dippy on board making a special trip to the Cathedral Close.

Dippy, the Natural History Museum’s iconic Diplodocus cast, has taken up residence at the Cathedral until October 30 for the final stop on his nationwide touring exhibition Dippy on Tour.

It has already attracted millions of people across the UK and Norwich Cathedral is the eight and final stop on the Natural History Museum tour, which is in partnership with the Garfield Weston Foundation and supported by Dell EMC and Williams & Hill. Barratt and Cooke is the regional sponsor for the exhibition.
