Before Lonely Planet, this book was the essential accompaniment to any Victorian gentleman or lady's trip to one of the foremost cities of the United Kingdom. The city of Norwich has a long and prosperous history, and is known for its much-loved football club, historic architecture and idyllic setting. At the end of the nineteenth century, the city, caught up in the Industrial Revolution, experienced rapid growth that transformed it into the primary city of Norfolk. Many deserted the countryside for the city life, and the population expanded with a new generation. Reprinted from original nineteenth-century texts, this is the original `traveller's guide' to Norwich.
The Victorian Traveller's Guide to Norwich will take readers on a guided tour of the city's fascinating past, highlighting its many points of interest.
