The Norwich Society is inviting the public to learn about the city's fascinating heritage.

On Wednesday, May 3, it is leading a guided walk along King Street from 2pm.

Jan King will delve into the street's past, which is said to harbour a 'wealth of industrial and social' history.

From 10am on Tuesday, March 9, in the west end of Norwich, Rod Spokes will talk about Pottergate, St Benedict's and other fascinating parts of the city. The guided walk starts at St Gregory's Alley.

Jonathan Hooton is hosting a guided walk through the Cathedral Quarter and its many pubs on May 15, from 2pm.

It begins at possibly the oldest pub in Norwich, the Adam and Eve in Bishopgate, and explores the history of the area's many drinking establishments and characters who visited them.
