After a hearty breakfast in The Bell Hotel we were ready to spend the day viewing more of the city’s cultural attractions. We’d planned our first stop at the Plantation Garden but on the way discovered a hidden gem. Tucked away on Bethel Street is the South Asia Decorative Arts & Crafts Collection museum and shop housed in a restored Victorian skating rink. The internal architecture is exquisite and it was lovely to see that the building was still in use. In addition to being a skating rink, the building has also been a theatre and home to the first citadel of the Salvation Army in Norwich.

Continuing on our way, we soon arrived at the Plantation Garden which adjoins the catholic cathedral. Admission to the garden is £2 with an honesty box available for when the kiosk is closed.
