Seven pub 'zones' have been launched as part of a new festival aiming to encourage people to get out and about.

The Norwich Pub Festival, run by the Norwich and District CAMRA branch, began on Thursday, July 1, with 62 pubs taking part, and will run throughout July.

Revellers can tour seven colour-coded zones, receiving a guide stamp at each and a wristband at the final stop of each zone. Those who visit all 62, collecting all stamps and wristbands, will be given a gift at Norwich Beer Festival in October.

Pubs are also being paired with different breweries - the Rose Inn, on Queens Road, for example, has been linked with Poppyland Brewery in Cromer.

Landlady Dawn Hopkins said: "Anything that encourages people to get out and go to pubs and experience places they might not have been before is good. There's a lot of positivity."

Here are the seven zones:
