The Sheriff’s House is situated in the centre of Norwich. In the immediate surrounding area you will find some of the best bars and restaurants the city has to offer such as The Last Wine Bar & Restaurant, Merchants of Spice, Cosy Club, The Golden Star, St Andrews Brewhouse as well as the wonderful Norwich Playhouse and Cinema City all on your doorstep.

The building is also surrounded by history as it sits in the ancient heart of Norwich in Colegate. Founded by the Anglo Saxons who settled in Norwich around 720 AD, the city became wealthy enough to attract Viking raiders who settled in Norwich around 870 AD. Viking place names are all around you in this part of the city – the suffix ‘-gate’ itself means ‘street’ in Old Norse. Norwich benefited from these great sea traders and went on to be one of England’s great trading ports, mainly thanks to the booming wool trade. The wool trade made its merchants rich – leading to the building and rebuilding of Norwich’s many medieval churches and indeed our own Sheriff’s House.
