Explore the rich history of Norfolk's churches

A treasure to discover and a story to tell

Our churches have a character all of their own. From tiny Saxon parish churches to the great Cathedral of Norwich there is so much to see and enjoy. Whether you’re in the Brecks, on the Broads, at the coast or in towns and villages – historic churches abound.

Each parish church tells their building’s story in their own words, as well as giving practical information like if the church has toilets, is wheelchair accessible or has tea and coffee making facilities.

We hope this website enables you to discover some of the unique churches in Norfolk and North East Suffolk and to plan visits to these wonderful buildings which will add to the enjoyment of your stay in this wonderful corner of England.


Celebrating the dedicated volunteers

All churches are cared for by dedicated local volunteers.  Their time and commitment in enabling their local church to be open to visitors and for Sunday services is outstanding.

This website only shows those churches which are open daily, or those which can be visited by collecting a key from a local volunteer.  There may be occasions when a church cannot be open, for example if substantial repairs are being carried out, so we always recommend contacting the church before visiting if this is possible.

Each church’s website will give more details and highlight regular Sunday service dates and times.
