Norwich: Heritage City

Norwich: Heritage City app



The highly anticipated Norwich: Heritage City app is now available on iPhone and Android.

The 'Norwich: Heritage City' app is designed to help you explore Norwich's great heritage and hidden history. Find out about the Norwich 12 – Norwich's iconic buildings spanning 1,000 years of history – and discover the city's Cathedral Quarter, The Lanes – a beautiful historic area, unique places, history along the river Wensum and much more.

You can discover historic buildings and places from the map, around your current location, or just browse through the heritage as you wish. When you're at one of the historic sites, you'll be able to check-in to receive a badge – visit all the places in that group and you'll get an extra theme badge! Don't forget to share your badge awards via Facebook, Twitter or Foursquare.

Norwich: Heritage City is ideal for visitors to the city, as well as residents who wish to explore more of their hometown. Whether you use it on the go to discover heritage sites, or as a planning tool for your trip to Norwich, the app will help you discover the city's history and culture. Norwich also has many historical links with the Belgian city of Ghent, Norwich's unofficial 'sister' city – we've provided a taster of some of Ghent's outstanding heritage sites.

Key features:

  • Easy to use – discover Norwich's heritage from the map, near your current location or just browse the sites as you wish
  • Detailed offline mapping – once you've downloaded the app, you can use it when offline, including the street maps, so you don't have to pay roaming charges
  • Informative content – find out about Norwich's heritage sites and plan your visit
  • Earn badges – gain a badge every time you check-in at one of the historic places, and group badges for the keen explorer! 
  • Share your trip – when you've checked-in, share your badges with friends to show where you've explored!
Note: This app uses location services, and as such can use quite a lot of battery. We reccomend that you turn location services off for the app, or 'kill' the app through your phone's multi-tasking bar, when you are not busy exploring Norwich.

More historic places to explore and badges to earn will be added regularly, so do check for updates within the app to make sure you're not missing out!

We hope you'll enjoy discovering Norwich's heritage.
