This landmark of Norwich is many things to many people. Exhibitions and craft sales, eating and drinking with activities going on in and around make it a great place to be. The library is also worth a visit with great, helpful staff.

There was a Lego Exhibition on when we visited plus a photographic exhibition in the open area. Apart from bars and the library upstairs not a lot to see.
