A new website for Norwich 12 - the UK's finest collection of individually outstanding heritage buildings spanning the last millennium - has launched: www.norwich12.co.uk.
The website will be an essential and interactive information portal about the group, which consists of: Norwich Castle, Norwich Cathedral, The Great Hospital, The Halls - St Andrew's and Blackfriars', The Guildhall, Dragon Hall, The Assembly House, St James Mill, St John's Roman Catholic Cathedral, Surrey House, City Hall and The Forum. It will form part of wider marketing plans to promote Norwich's reputation as a premier heritage destination locally, nationally and internationally.
The website brings together a wealth of information about the buildings, including images and historical information, as well as details about how to access and explore each building. There are also sections on the group's education initiatives and latest projects as well as an events calendar.
The organisation behind the Norwich 12 initiative is Norwich Heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust (HEART). Michael Loveday, Chief Executive of HEART said: "The Norwich 12 website should be the first point of call for local people and visitors who want to find out more about the collection of buildings, providing virtual access to these iconic buildings from anywhere in the world. Norwich 12 offers a unique visitor experience and the website also includes practical information for anyone planning visits to the buildings."
The website was built by WS Creative, a Norwich-based web design company.
